Functionality

The design of DOCman makes it possible to use the data fields in flexible ways to accomplish multiple types of tasks and download products.

Ease of use

Once the component is set up and a routine established, it is easy to use. As a new Joomla user, I had to go through a learning curve.

Support

We missed a major upgrade, and DOCman and all our data disappeared. Before we could panic, Support stepped in and made it good as new. Wow!

Value for money

Our recent experience with the DOCman support team has convinced us to stick with DOCman and continue to renew our subscription.

I used this to: FutureCycle Press uses DOCman to make PDFs of our poetry titles available to our Reviewer Registry members. With 100 books and growing (and one person handling design, production, marketing, the web site, and troubleshooting), DOCman is a timesaver and essential management tool.

Functionality

The set-up is easy and once that is done and the categories and permissions are set, it is very easy in use.

Ease of use

Upload file, publish it. There is nothing more to it!

Support

I had two issues recently this was caused by my template. But before we figured that out, support worked hard on finding the problem.

Documentation

Everything is well documented and if you have a question, the support answers your question quickly and in understandable wording.

Value for money

The initial purchase for the full pack did hurt a little but the software is stable, has regular updates and the support is phenomenal!

I used this to: I use this for distributing my 465 Honda moped and motorcycle manuals to the public.

Conclusion: These guys are awesome. They have a great sense of humour and I really appreciate that! And their findings provide me with enough clues how to make my website even better! Thanks!

Functionality

Offers a lot of what we need and over the last couple of years quite a lot of our requested features found their way into the extension.

Ease of use

Very easy to use, got even better with 2.x

Support

Had a problem after migration and even though it turned out to be our mistake support was quick, very helpful and extremely nice.

Documentation
Value for money

Great!

I used this to: Providing documents related to events.

Absolutely Brilliant

Functionality

We have been using docman now for about 8 years and it hasn't disappointed us. Now with the new version even more functionality is added.

Ease of use

Very intuitive and easy to learn. This is much needed since we use volunteers to input the documents and data.

Support

Swift and prompt support right to the point. They won't give up until your problem is solved. Very professional.

Documentation

Documentation is sufficient to start your site also the demo environment is good to see how things are done. Lastly the forum is also helpful

Value for money

It is a good value for money. With a relatively low investment you have a very professional system with good support

I used this to: We are using it on a site for a Charity which is raising money to fund scientific research into the Angelman Syndrome. Our site has a part where parents and scientists can review most of the relevant documents and publications on the field of the Angelman Syndrome.

Functionality

Straightforward functionality

Ease of use

Very easy to use for both developer and end user.

Support
Value for money

100% value for money.

I used this to: i used it to create a private customer area and it did the job perfectly.

I amazed of how well the code was written and the ease of customization.

The overrides was a breeze. Congrats to the developer.

Functionality

Docman and Logman function the way they should and make working with documents and keeping track of users so much easier.

Ease of use

Like any program, Docman takes a bit of getting used to, but personally I think it's super easy to use and makes my life so much easier.

Support

I've had a few issues with an update that went wrong, but their support was outstanding. Thumbs up all around for you guys and thank you.

Documentation

I haven't had much use for the documentation, since most questions are answered fully on their forums.

Value for money

The price is very affordable, considering the fast turn-around in support and the general usefulness of the programs.

I used this to: keeping track of our extensive library of pdf documents. And it works wonderfully.

Functionality

It seems to offer great functionality, but it didn't work on installation

Ease of use

It is complex to set up and use, and without useful documentation and reliable support, it is a nightmare

Support

They were very quick to respond to the first ticket, but then failed to follow up.

Documentation

There is plenty, but none of it is very useful. A basic guide on how to set it up would be helpful.

Value for money

Abysmal - the most expensive Joomla extension I have ever bought, and it didn't even work.

I used this to: Managing files and documents on the club site. The idea was to have an area where authors could upload files for use on the site and in emails.

Functionality

I've been using DOCman since version 1. I just updated to the latest version 2.1. It just keeps getting better and always impresses clients.

Ease of use

DOCman is sophisticated but easy to use.

Support

DOCman support through Joomlatools is exemplary. I do subscribe to their highest level of support but it's worth every penny.

Value for money

Customers are impressed with DOCman. They often express they are getting enterprise level functionality inside Joomla! with this component.

I used this to: I'm using DOCman for a client portal system using special access levels and groups management for managing all types of documents, videos, presentations, etc. for their customers.

Clean and simple.

Value for money

Impossible to build anything close to this at this cost. ROI is fast just with time wasted attempted to upload and link documents in back en

I used this to: Client web sites with login access on front end. Clients easily upload pdf, word and spreadsheet docs. I have used Docman for years and happy to see that it continues to grow with extended features. A good investment.
