Papermerge is a new Document Manager solution for enterprise

Papermerge is an open source document management system (DMS) primarily designed for archiving and retrieving your digital documents. Instead of having piles of paper documents all over your desk, office or drawers - you can quickly scan them and configure your scanner to directly upload to Papermerge DMS.

Papermerge DMS on its turn will OCR the document and index it. You will be able to quickly find any (scanned!) document using full text search capabilities.

Its backend is build with Django and its frontend with EmberJS.

This is web-based software. This means there is no executable file (aka no .exe files), and it must be run on a web server and accessed through a web browser.
