smarchive, the first intelligent document filing system, just received a seven-figure investment before launching its software. T-Venture, CHECK24 and some business angels, among them Birgit Ströbel, co-founder of Germany’s biggest online real estate platforms, Immobilienscout24, are taking part in the Munich-based startup. The young company was founded in 2011. Its software, which is currently in the closed beta phase, will be made available to the general public in the first quarter of 2013.
smarchive describes itself as the smart ring binder for the Digital Age. Thanks to various import methods like photographing paper documents with smartphones, automatic integration from the service providers’ customer portals, or by syncing with Cloud storage services, you can find your documents in the archive in a matter of seconds. Afterwards the documents will be categorized and a reminder function ensures that no more due dates are forgotten. Personal records are always available by app or browser. Security is top priority at smarchive: the data is encrypted multiple times and hosted on German servers according to strict data protection regulations.

Steffen Reitz, founder and CEO of smarchive stated: “Our goal is to offer a novel and innovative software solution to everyday paperwork that will lead to individuals spending less time on imposing, bureaucratic tasks. It gives virtually everyone their own personal assistant on the side.” Thanks to specially developed semantic software, this technology offers more than just data storage in the cloud. Since smarchive is an intelligent system, it reminds you of cancellation periods and automatically organizes and sorts documents in the correct folders. It’s also characterized by a user-friendly and amiably designed interface. “Thanks to smarchive, paperwork only takes a few seconds and can be managed comfortably with tablets – whether you’re on the road or at home on the couch,” Reitz says and adds: “We’re very proud of having inspired CHECK24 along with T-Venture and even experienced entrepreneurs like Birgit Ströbel.”
