DocSTAR manufactures document management systems (software), enterprise content management, workflow improvement, document imaging and document retention software. docSTAR is headquartered in Schenectady, New York and is the primary document management solution to over 7,000 organizations across the US. docSTAR serves the Insurance, Healthcare, State and Municipal Gov't, Real Estate and Services sectors.



docSTAR is a Division of Astria Solutions Group. Astria Solutions Group was formed in 2007 by Tom Franceski, Jeff Frankel and Greg Laird, which acquired docSTAR in June 2007 from AuthentiDate Holding Corp.[1]

docSTAR was formerly known as BitWise Designs Inc. and was founded in 1985 by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students John Botti and Ira Whitman. In 1992, BitWise began public trading under the stock symbol BTWS. In 1996 the document imaging division of BitWise was founded as docSTAR. In 1998 and 1999, the docSTAR division of Bitwise was recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies.[2] In April 2000, docSTAR unveiled its first turnkey system, docSTAR SE. docSTAR SE provided innovation in the document imaging/management field by allowing simultaneous access to over 100 users at a time per system.

In March 2001, BitWise designs officially changed its name to AuthentiDate Holding Corporation and began trading under the NASDAQ symbol ADAT. AuthentiDate was the first company to gain official USPS Electronic Postmark (EPM) and docSTAR was the first document management platform to integrate the EPM technology. At present, Authentidate remains the official EPM provider to the United States Postal Service. In 2005 AuthentiDate moved its headquarters from Schenectady, NY to Berkley Heights, NJ. The docSTAR division remained in Schenectady.

docSTAR currently operates in cooperation with over 100 partner resellers who cover approximately 80% of the document imaging markets in the United States.


The company's latest "on premise" version, docSTAR 3eleven, launched on January 11, 2011. docSTAR 3eleven offers a full functioning web client that allows for easy remote access to documents and enhanced workflow efficiency measures and reporting. 3eleven also offers integration with any Internet Explorer based program.

Other Integrations:

docSTAR's "cloud based" software is known as Eclipse. The Eclipse service does not require specialized hardware and there is minimal up-front capital investment. docSTAR Eclipse allows remote access from any PC with an Internet connection, from anywhere in the world. Designed with enterprise customers in mind, docSTAR Eclipse flexibly and affordable meets the needs of small to medium business office environments.
