Computhink was founded in 1994 to address the emerging need to convert volumes of paper documents to digital and save them in an organized and accountable structure. “Over the years, Computhink products have evolved with technology advancements and the growing needs of various markets,” according to Joseph Wharram, President. This is precisely why Computhink, through its worldwide network of partners, has now incorporated digital services from their marketing division, Marqana – to facilitate the need for this transformation into a universal business environment.

Contentverse – Easy and Powerful Document Management Software
“Contentverse is extremely flexible and solves business process challenges common to any operational environment,” says Wharram. Documents of any format can be scanned, electronically saved, or generated by third party applications into Contentverse. Company web data can be imported into Contentverse from analytics sources, social media and blog posts, email blasts, cloud applications, and especially forms and documents on the company website itself. All of this data can then be easily searched and made accessible for collaboration. Access is dependent on security settings, providing complete control over what users can and cannot do.

Drag and drop features speed up the time spent building your knowledge base. Office documents, emails, spreadsheets, PDFs, and electronic forms can be incorporated into new or existing files with ease. It even enables high speed production capture as part of your documentation processes. Contentverse enables auto indexing of key details, including web-based forms, storing of files in an intuitive digital file cabinet custom to your needs. The software allows retrieval of records quickly by a flexible set of search options. Contentverse supports automatic version control and date/time stamping, enabling auditing to select and separate out what is important.

Contentverse comes fully equipped with rules-based workflow, designed to imitate, automate, and accelerate everyday records processing and retention. “Consider the productivity benefits an automated workflow provides: simply drag a report to a folder, and it’s automatically routed to appropriate individuals for edits, approvals, and digital signing,” remarks Wharram. “Whether a collaborative effort or a step-by-step approval process, Contentverse will make it happen.” Documents can be secured, actioned, and archived for subsequent retrieval as needed. Marketing collateral such as white papers can be written, designed, approved, and disseminated all in a single workflow. “If an integration does not exist for your specified software application, we can and will develop it with little or no additional cost.”

Securing files in Contentverse is simple and ensures compliance with the stringent regulatory requirements found across the spectrum of industries and operational environments. History logs, audit trail files, and workflow evaluation reporting track all activity at the document and system level. “Contentverse includes highly granular security and encrypts files during storage, ensuring your documents are kept out of the wrong hands while maintaining viability for auditing or litigation purposes,” according to Joe. “It even provides real time automated notifications of actions and optional digital signature solutions.”
