Next® Companion allows you to handle more and bigger files from your pc and laptop
Next® Digital Workplace is 100% browser-based. This is brilliant and allows you to access your documents and process tasks from anywhere. But it also has it's limitations.
While we can easily edit a Word document or an Excel spreadsheet in Next® as it is, we do need a small piece of software installed to do the same with PDFs, and other documents that do not originate from Microsoft Office. Until now this was handled by the Next® App Launcher. To replace the Next® App Launcher we now introduce the Next® Companion.
Besides allowing you to edit PDFs and other non-Office documents directly from Next®, Next® Companion also allows you to asynchronously up- and download big documents and files to and from Next®.
The Next® Companion keeps you in the loop with notifications in your Windows notification center, as well as in the Next® notification center.
Everything happens automatically, but you are kept in the loop
The business log
All transactions and user actions are logged in Next® - even if Next® Companion is doing the heavy lifting.
A future release of the Next® Companion will also run on Mac and Linux.
For the techies
The Next® Companion requires .NET 5.0 to be installed on the PC.
If you do not roll out the Next® Companion automatically, each user will need to install it manually.
The first time you start the Next® Companion, your browser will ask you to confirm it.
Commercial terms and conditions
The Next® Companion in itself is a part of Next® Digital Workplace, and requires no additional license. To use it with Quick-edit PDF, Reply to Email, Add and download Compound document, you need an appropriate license.
