Always in sync and audited

Every document uploaded and every document version updated in Objective Connect is automatically synchronised with your document management system, with a complete record updated in the document management system audit trail.

Right-click, share

Simply right-click from within your document management system to share a document or a folder of documents, creating a secure, private workspace to collaborate with external parties.
