DOCmanager

DOCmanager is our secure document exchange system. You get full administration rights with unlimited client accounts, which allows you to give your clients access to their secure area of your website to download files uploaded by you, or to securely send files to you. You get an initial 250mb of space and can purchase further tranches of 250mb for £10 plus VAT per month.

DOCmanager provides an entry level document exchange system. If you already have an online document management solution (eg Iris Opensource, docSAFE or virtualcabinet) for your firm then we can link your website to this.

Accessibility

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 was introduced with the intention of comprehensively tackling the discrimination which many disabled people face. Changes to the DDA that came into effect in 1999 and 2004 have now created a legal duty for websites to be made accessible. The definition of accessibility includes blind and partially sighted users.

Our sites are built to be used to people of all abilities / disabilities on a range of different devices. We also include a page of information on accessibility on every site to help users with particular requirements.
