User Interface and Configuration Layer

CARA provides a fully featured user interface with multiple configuration options to match your precise requirements

CARA is a fast and highly personalisable user interface for multiple use cases. From a full featured interface to a portal and mobile access, CARA offers different user experiences to each group depending on their requirements – and through our Microsoft Office and other integrations provides even simpler access to secure content management. Our configuration layer allows everything in the UI to be configured, including integrations-as-configurations to a wide variety of third party systems.

CARA user features

CARA has a unique ability to allow users to build their own navigation tree view (Dimensions) based on metadata.

Extensible panel showing widgets – choose from a core set (e.g. properties, renditions) or create your own, linking in any web service / JSP or query as a widget. Rearrange the widgets pane with drag & drop.

Define different views for different user groups / usage scenarios. Specify different properties, widgets, filters, SnapLists, Dimensions and other options, allowing users to work in the way that best supports their individual processes.

Dashboards provide a strong reporting capability for data both inside CARA and accessible externally via web services. Results can be shown as tables, charts or graphs, exported to Excel.

All settings that users choose to personalise are saved as their preferences, so that the user can login from another machine and will have the same preferences applied.

CARA has a full configuration and customisation layer built in to allow faster deployment and easier validation.

CARA Configuration

Easy integration through configuration – build third party integrations through configuration not hard-coding.

Document classification configuration for handling behaviour based on any combination of metadata.

Dynamic security
using per-document-per-user workflow access or rules based on metadata combinations.

Folder linking to store documents using metadata – although using our Dimensions to navigates can replace the need for folder-based systems.

Metadata inheritance and calculation – set 90% of metadata fields on documents automatically to save time for users and increase indexing of content.

Staging Area – handle incoming emails and attachments or allow third parties partial access to the repository.

Form configuration – manage not just document metadata forms but other user input forms e.g. medical information call center cases and more.

Full Audit trail and controlled printing configuration.

Easy export / import of configuration with a single click and generation of a configuration report in Microsoft Word.
