docSTAR Series 3 End-of-Support Notification

Category: News,

Posted By:

The docSTAR Series 3 Document 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 modernized Enterprise Content Management and AP Automation solution designed for the web. Since DocStar ECM was designed to be the next evolution of powerful and scalable solution, the time has come to announce the End-of-Support for the docSTAR Series 3 software platform.

While retiring a software product is a natural stage of any product’s life cycle, we recognize 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 docSTAR Series 3 Document Management Solution will be transitioning to its end-of-support cycle in three phases:

  • We will accept new orders from new customers for docSTAR Series 3 solutions through April 30, 2017
  • We will continue to provide bug fixes and accept orders from existing customers for additional licenses and modules through December 31, 2017
  • We will continue to provide support for docSTAR Series 3 through December 31, 2018
