However, it’s not all roses: one many DMS’ drawbacks is the requirement for an almost intermediate-level background in IT that cannot be achieved by many businesses, giving their providers room to convince non-expert customers that they need a great variety of features that in practice would rarely be used.

The cleaned and minimal design reflects the easiness by which anyone can use DMS, from the possibility of creating a new work team (inviting new members and deciding the access rights to be assigned), to the fact that each change, problem and relevant news can be emailed at any time to each participant.
The way the users can manage the documents is completely free of any complex requirement; they just need to work on them (one user at a time), upload their files and wait for an eventually-asked revision. Of course, a fundamental aspect of DMS is that it is possible to monitor the posted files at any time , as each version of a document is saved in the timeline.
Suggestions: an instantaneous chatting window would make communication way easier and more time-saving, and moreover it would be a great achievement developing a mobile-friendly version of the program, so that it would be possible for the businesses to work on the platform not only when in the office.
