Support

I have no had much need of support for this product but I can say that the last 2 interactions I had were handled in no time at all!

Documentation

Again I have not had much need for using documentation but I love the search simplicity in the forum with the pre-filter of the product.

Value for money

We use this component it a lot of websites and I can say that it is great value for money.

I used this to: I use this for many Catholic School websites in Australia. We have been building websites for just over 20 years. Joomla has been our CMS of choice for 10 years (yep, that is how old Joomla is too). DocMan has been a key component in many of our sites.

I reported a problem which they needed to code a fix for. They turned out a new release within a day and installed it for me. FANTASTIC!!!

Value for money

This is the best document management component for Joomla you can buy. The price is perfectly reasonable.

Functionality

Works as advertised, easy for non-technical staff.

Ease of use

As easy as it gets. Only suggestion is that some settings could be placed on the component instead of the menu item.

Support

Great! I had an issue with the launch of MS Edge. These guys found the source of the issue (MS), and fixed the problem on my site.

Value for money

Does what they offer.

I used this to: A customer who has a restricted site for they company's staff and agents. There are tens of categories and several hundreds of documents on the site.

Functionality

Works 'out of the box' simple to install, setup and configure. Generation of thumbnails is a niggle, but can understand why it was removed.

Ease of use

Very simple load files, create links, it's that simple!

Support

EXCELLENT. Probably one of the best supported extensions for Joomla.

Documentation

Not much, but it is not needed as its pretty self explanatory

Value for money

Depending on what you sign up for, the bespoke support is first class.

I used this to: A HikaShop e-commerce site with product manuals and sales literature available for download

Great support behind this
