The tax audit is rapidly approaching, and you’re unsure whether all documents have been properly archived. With digital archiving, you can get rid of your paperwork. You’ll be able to easily keep track of business activities and meet governmental or industry standards. All document accesses and changes are tracked, allowing you to prove proper information handling through detailed audit tracking and reports. Centralized information governance reduces the cost of information management while also lowering the risk of fines for noncompliance.
Always remain legally compliant by adhering to storage, deletion, access restriction, and other specifications.
Respond to cost-cutting pressures by digitizing paper documents, which will significantly reduce storage space and facility costs.
Make sure the data is available for the duration of the retention period by using long-term storage formats and media.
Search millions of documents in seconds. Since access is provided via a web client, there is no need to distribute software throughout the organization.
Whether you’re a market leader or just starting out — the only constant is change. Build a solution for the challenges you face today while remaining open for change in the future. We’re here to help you along the way with tons of resources and a great community. What will you build?
Globus is a German company with a long tradition in the field of DIY stores and specialized trade. Globus was founded in 1828 and is nowadays present with over 144 stores in Germany alone with additional stores in Luxembourg, the Czech Republic and Russia.
With yuuvis® RAD, Globus is replacing its old archive – combined with an extremely extensive data migration. In order to realize the advantages of yuuvis® RAD quickly, Globus and OPTIMAL SYSTEMS have decided on a gradual migration. This means: While individual stores are already working with the new data archive, the migration of the old system continues in the background. Within this yuuvis® RAD use case, 200 million full-text documents from the archive can be searched in less than 3 seconds.
Project result: The first store went online after one month. The deployment of yuuvis® RAD in all stores was completed after only six months.
Meffert AG is one of the leading manufacturers of paints, varnishes, and stains in Europe. It’s a globally active company and requires a content services framework that provides support for different languages and character sets.
Meffert chose yuuvis® RAD in 2017 thanks to its flexibility, scalability and the REST API, which was crucial for integrating with the existing IT infrastructure. They created a solution for invoicing, compliant email archiving, and managing business partner records.
Simona AG supplies semi-finished plastic products to a broad range of industries, with a specialty in ensuring safety for chemical apparatus and plant engineering.
As a 150 year-old business, Simona had legacy systems in place when they started talking to OPTIMAL SYSTEMS about yuuvis® RAD. They were looking to modernize their systems and needed both an audit-proof archive and a 360° view of customer and supplier information.
They found the solution they needed in yuuvis® RAD and were able to migrate an old archive comprised of 15 million documents, as well as replace their FileNet customer, supplier, and contract records system.
With their new archive and 360° view of customer and supplier information, they also added yuuvis® RAD capture scan to replace an existing application in the mailroom and integrated with SAP®.
Labor Berlin – Charité Vivantes GmbH is a joint subsidiary of Vivantes – Netzwerk für Gesundheit GmbH and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin founded on 01 January 2011. More than 60 million laboratory analyses are carried out annually by over 600 employees at thirteen locations. Europe’s largest hospital laboratory combines nine specialist areas under one roof. In 2020, Labor Berlin was named one of Germany’s Top 100 most innovative medium-sized companies for the third time in a row.
Labor Berlin has been using yuuvis® RAD since 2018 and relies on the diverse possibilities offered by this system through its connection to “SAP Business ByDesign” for the legally compliant archiving of incoming invoices. When archiving incoming invoices, yuuvis® RAD actively connects to the SAP Business ByDesign system cyclically via a web service interface and retrieves the most current incoming invoices.
At Labor Berlin, in addition to the current incoming invoices, the incoming invoices posted in the Business ByDesign system since the beginning of 2017 were also archived.
Business processes are often lengthy, difficult to track, and prone to error. The manual effort can be reduced with automated workflows, freeing up more time for important tasks. yuuvis® RAD simplifies the creation of workflows for a wide range of tasks while also allowing for flexible customization.
No more endless email threads. No comparing of document versions. Shared editing processes make it easier to collaborate with others. This way, you’ll always know who’s working on the document and what its status is. Comments and changes are saved in the document history, making the editing process transparent for everyone.
To build tools that optimally assist you and your team on a daily basis, you need to ask yourself: How do users interact with the content, how do they share it, and how can such information be used in existing and new business processes to gain new insights in a matter of seconds?
Setup and maintenance of tools You need to provide users with tools that help them do their job in the best way possible. Roles and rights are crucial to ensure everyone has access to the information they need.

Here’s how yuuvis® RAD can help
Deploy end-user applications in a fraction of the time and at a lower cost compared to traditional tools. Less code means fewer potential errors and easier maintenance.
You can configure the organizational structure in yuuvis® RAD to accurately reflect your company’s organizational and staff structure. Roles and rights are part of the yuuvis® RAD security system. In yuuvis® RAD, user rights for accessing data, functions, and applications are organized into roles based on the employees’ areas of tasks and responsibilities. As a result, users with similar tasks and responsibilities have the same rights in the system.
The microservices stack provides comprehensive integration of maintenance, load balancing, failover and health check into data center management and monitoring tools. yuuvis® RAD metrics-manager is an optional extension to yuuvis® RAD that is used to consolidate logs, gain a perspective view of the data, present the results in a visually understandable manner, configure e-mail notifications for critical states and errors, and optimize processes on this basis.
Templates provide best practice solutions and a great starting point for own applications.
Applications implemented with yuuvis® RAD scale even in medium-sized, globally distributed company networks thanks to the modern microservices stack and the responsive web client (Angular/HTML5).

Here’s how yuuvis® RAD can help
Nothing in yuuvis® RAD is proprietary. It therefore offers the fastest and most secure architecture available today. The strict application of the latest standards provides instant access to the largest network of software experts in the world.
The microservices stack offers comprehensive integration of maintenance, load balancing, failover and health check into the management and monitoring tools of data centers. yuuvis® RAD serves both the S3 interface, the de facto standard for data storage, and OAuth 2.0 for standardized, secure API authorization for desktop, web and mobile applications.
Data center friendly
Thanks to the web client, the rollout on end-user workstations is simple and straightforward, without any local installation effort. The HTTP(S) protocol between the web client and the server fully complies with standard firewall technologies.
Information sprawl Documents are stored in various locations, and you spend several hours each day just looking for the right information.

Here’s how yuuvis® RAD can help
You know exactly where to look for the information you need. The appealing and easy-to-use web client simplifies working with documents and other content. Processes are more effective, faster and better organized than ever.
Metadata is data that describes the properties and values of a business object in yuuvis® RAD. Via this metadata, business objects can be stored, retrieved, and identified securely and quickly in the yuuvis® RAD classification system.
When you search for a document, you have different options:
The yuuvis® RAD client is compatible with Microsoft Office applications and Outlook. For example, newly created Office documents can be saved directly into yuuvis® RAD via the yuuvis® RAD Office Add-In. Documents created in yuuvis® RAD can be opened directly in Office applications with a mouse click using the yuuvis® RAD agent and the yuuvis® RAD Office Add-In, and they can be saved and checked in again directly in yuuvis® RAD when closed.
The version history of a document keeps track of any changes. This makes it clear who is in charge and what changes have been made. The result is full transparency for users at the time of editing as well as long-term compliance with regulations.
One for all: The responsive web client based on HTML5 and TypeScript (Angular) works on any device. Start with the included web client, extend it, or create your own if desired. Despite the easy rollout, deep integration with desktop applications (such as Microsoft Office) is possible.
Get a sense of how simple it is to create new applications using the yuuvis® RAD designer, our primary modeling tool. See how simple and quick it is to script a form. How microservices support the lean system. And how you can create a custom client and custom actions in a fraction of the time and with less code.
Sometimes the requirements are so specific that a few plugins are not enough. This is where greater flexibility is needed. With the well-defined REST API, you can build custom applications – from your own web client to your own business logic.
Thanks to the modular microservices architecture you can easily extend yuuvis® RAD’s functionality. Simply write your own business logic and add it to the system as a new microservice. This is a powerful way of creating just the application you need.
yuuvis® RAD was created with the API-first philosophy in mind. The open architecture and comprehensively documented REST API allow for easy integration into existing system landscapes and quick connection of third-party applications.
The schema defines the objects that your application works with. It is made up of metadata attributes and object types that categorize your documents. By categorizing and attributing your documents in this way, you add a new layer of information to your content. This allows for extremely precise search and fast access to the content you need. yuuvis® RAD designer provides a convenient and clear tool for creating and editing your schema.
Model responsive, automatically adapting data forms in a snap. Instead of tediously defining form elements on the screen, yuuvis® RAD designer includes an editor for modeling form element logical dependencies (groups, compositions). The system will automatically provide the perfect layout and alignment. You don’t need a UX expert. This allows for quick and easy customization, resulting in forms with a highly professional look and feel.
To ensure that everyone has access to the information they need, access rights are assigned via user roles. The role model maps the hierarchical organizational structures of your company. Authorizations are inherited through the organizational structure. Depending on which organizational unit an employee belongs to, they automatically have the corresponding rights to edit objects and workflows.
Ready to go in days. Working solutions built in days instead of weeks and months. Bringing benefits and efficiencies to your company sooner at less cost.
yuuvis® RAD designer features a graphical editor for modeling workflows and business processes. A process is made up of a series of interconnected activities and steps. You can define workflows for different processes, e.g. document reviews or vacation requests.
