Hybrid DM solutions

Cloud Friendly

MacroView DMF® is available in two configurations, both of which enable you to create a Document Management System (DMS) in the Office 365 Cloud:

  • MacroView DMF supports hybrid solutions for managing documents and emails.  Your document store can extend over one or multiple on-premises SharePoint web applications and also an Office 365 tenancy. MacroView DMF (Hybrid) uses a patented custom web service to provide full functionality and unrivalled volume handling capability.
  • MacroView DMF 365 is the cost effective option if you want a ‘cloud-only’ document store.  MacroView Message 365 is a client-side only deployment and enables excellent document management solutions using Office 365 SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business
