What is officeGATE?

Most customers are working with emails, documents, different DMS, and cloud solutions on daily basis. Usually, for all these heterogeneous systems, they need to have multiple applications open. The collaboration between these applications is very complicated if not impossible. It is also time consuming – everybody wants to handle files easy to save time and money. Just imagine how you copy an attachment from an email into a SharePoint library. Download the file locally, open a web browser, navigate to the site and library, upload the document, and then fill in the metadata. What if you could do all this with a simple move of your mouse?
