Our Migration Strategy
It’s important to understand that every Documaker implementation is different – some started life as Documerge conversions, while others may have been built from scratch. Some applications may have very complicated business rules and assembly logic, whereas others may consist of many static forms (such as ISO). Starting with a thorough analysis of the current system, our experienced team determines the right blend of automation and knowledge capital to apply to each individual project.
