DocuLex Archive Studio End of Support Notification

Category: News

April 25, 2017—The DocuLex Content Management Solution has provided substantial benefits to hundreds of organizations in virtually every industry over the past decade and more.  In August of 2012, DocStar announced DocStar ECM, a new, modernized Enterprise Content Management and Process Automation solution designed for the web. Since DocStar ECM was designed to be the next evolution of powerful and scalable ECM solutions from DocStar, the time has come to announce the End-of-Support for the DocuLex software platform.

While retiring a software product is a natural stage of any product’s life cycle, DocStar recognizes that we must provide our Customers with sufficient time to prepare for the software upgrade and data migration to DocStar ECM.  With that in mind, the DocuLex Content Management platform will be transitioning to its end-of-support cycle in three phases:

  1. Effective immediately, we will no longer accept new orders from new Customers for DocuLex Archive Studio.
  2. We will continue to provide bug fixes and accept orders from existing Customers for additional licenses and modules through June 30, 2017.
  3. We will continue to provide support for DocuLex through December 31, 2018.

What does this mean to you?

Over 30 current DocuLex Customers have already upgraded to DocStar ECM and we invite you to take advantage of this special offer to join them.  DocStar currently has over 750 Customers managing their mission critical business content with DocStar ECM.
