Advanced Document Management

Automated Application Delivery 

The docBlock extends the SharePoint platform by providing a virtual document service to your farm, allowing you to create a master document in any document library, as well as a hierarchy of document sections that can be updated separately by different individuals. This allows multiple people to edit and maintain the same document at the same time, with no risk of editing conflicts. The docBlock brings virtual documents to your users through seamless integration and intuitive user interaction. The automation and stable managed hardware platform of an appliance decreases your total cost of ownership and increases your SharePoint ROI. The appliance delivery model ensures that you get your virtual document capability deployed within hours and start saving valuable time authoring documents within days.




Concurrent Authoring

Security is always a concern, and so each docBlock document section can be secured separately. For instance, each contributor can see and work on their sections, but only the participants you authorize can see the completed document. The docBlock keeps the master document’s content current when sections change by automatically merging the sections into the master. The docBlock appliance hardware handles all virtual document processing, ensuring there is minimal performance impact on your SharePoint farm.
