By Joan Honig – DocuWare recently announced that, effective January 1, 2019, company presidents Jürgen Biffar and Thomas Schneck will transition their leadership positions to Dr. Michael Berger, currently the company’s Chief Technology Officer, and Max Ertl, the company’s Chief Revenue Officer.
Jürgen and Thomas have been the force behind DocuWare’s tremendous growth over the past 30 years. Founded in 1988 as Docunet, today DocuWare has headquarters in Germering and New Windsor, New York with offices in Spain, France and U.K. The solution is available in 16 languages, boasts 18,000 customers with 500,000 users across 70 countries, and is supported by a global network of over 600 partners.
Although Jürgen and Thomas will relinquish day-to-day management responsibilities in 2019, they will have a role as strategic advisors to the company’s leadership team. During this week, as DocuWare celebrates its 30th anniversary, we asked them to look back at DocuWare’s history and share their perspective on future developments.
