DIRECTUM is a software developer in the field of electronic document management. The company was established in 2003 on the basis of the relevant divisions of the NPO "Computer" with the aim of intensifying work on the promotion, development and implementation of the electronic document management and interaction management system Directum.

Main areas of activity

DIRECTUM covers the full range of tasks to ensure the easy and successful transition of organizations to electronic document flow:

  • examining the needs of organizations in various industries;
  • development of DIRECTUM system;
  • methodological development of implementation technologies and training courses;
  • development of the DIRECTUM partner network and community;
  • maintaining major implementation projects


The company's internal standards system DIRECTUM ensures the manageability and predictability of internal processes in the company. Standards for customer development, implementation, and support have been developed and implemented. The company monitors and studies modern international standards and technologies (ITIL/ITSM, CMM, ISO/IEC 15504 (SPICE), ISO-9000), from which the best world experience is adopted.

DIRECTUM has a certificate of compliance with GOST R ISO 9001:2008 in the field of quality management system for the development, implementation and maintenance of software.

Development Technologies

DIRECTUM software products are developed using modern technologies (COM,.NET, Internet technologies, etc.). The service-based architecture allows you to integrate the system with any application (ERP, CRM, etc.), expand its functionality and build scalable solutions to meet growing customer needs.


DIRECTUM software products have an open architecture and complete documentation for users and administrators. The openness of the system and the provision of a development tool provides a great opportunity to adapt and expand the system according to the needs of the customer. In addition, the implementation technology used is aimed at improving the skills of the customer's specialists and ensuring the continuous development of the system without the participation of the developer, which minimizes the cost of maintaining the system and increases its efficiency.

Performance indicators

2021: Directum turnover reached 1 billion rubles

In 2021, the revenue of the developer of the Directum document and digital process management system increased by 45%, to 1 billion rubles, according to the Kontur.Focus legal entity database. The company received a net profit of 195.8 million rubles, its growth was 259%. And the staff over the year expanded to more than 520 people.

Plus, our customers continued to get acquainted with the charms of artificial intelligence in routine work - our Directum Ario One AI system removes a huge number of pains in the recognition and processing of text information, helping companies release hundreds of man-hours. In 2021, the product became available from the cloud - the threshold for its use was lowered, "Svetlana Novokshonova told TAdviser.

An important factor is the influence of the state. It actively promotes digitalization ideas and develops its own IT tools. In November 2021, the experiment of the Ministry of Labor was completed and amendments to the TC of the Russian Federation on electronic personnel document management were adopted. The new law gave the green light to companies that feared switching to KEDO without direct legislative permission. After that, customer interest in Directum HR Pro, an integrated system for managing personnel processes, documents and services, has grown sharply, Novokshonova says.

In addition, a representative of Directum says, in the past few years, the company has been actively working on the import independence of the system - today Directum RX is 100% compatible with free and domestic software. At the same time, stimulating import substitution by the state in Directum cannot be called the driver of growth in the profit of their company in 2021.

The import substitution program stimulated more government authorities to choose domestic products, but we cannot call this factor the driver of the company's profit growth in 2021. Our customers primarily evaluated the capabilities of the systems: functionality, ease of operation, scalability, fault tolerance, etc., "said Svetlana Novokshonova in a conversation with TAdviser.

Regarding the plans for 2022, the company told TAdviser that they continue to "build" an ecosystem of ready-made solutions, strengthen the use of artificial intelligence in business processes, create a stable and comfortable environment for solving personnel and other pressing business problems.

2012: Agreement with Orienge to promote the system in the US market

In mid-May 2012, DIRECTUM announced a partnership agreement with the starting American company Orienge. The purpose of this union is obvious, although unusual for most developers of domestic software - the creation, promotion and implementation of their own ECM system in the US market.

"Cooperation with Orienge for us is a key driver for the promotion of our technologies in the international market," said Maxim Galimov, Director of Advanced Research at DIRECTUM. The interest in an American company specializing in consulting, development and implementation of ESM technologies is natural, because it and DIRECTUM build their corporate content management products based on the same IS-Builder platform. At the same time, Orienge has an undeniable trump card, its ECM-system Conterra includes system and application modules that take into account the specifics of American consumers, legal requirements and best management practices. "We see recognition of DIRECTUM platforms in the United States and look forward to the rapid expansion of Conterra's presence in the North American market. For our part, we provide priority methodological and information support to Orienge, "Galimov added

Orienge is actually actively gaining ground in the market, largely due to the constant development of the product portfolio. Within six months, two versions of Conterra were released one after another, the company introduced the solutions of Contract Management, Accounts Payable and InvoiceManagement, Records Management, etc.

"Orienge has recently entered the market, but our employees already have a lot of experience working with medium and large enterprises. The use of a mature, fully functional and simultaneously flexible IS-Builder platform made it possible to create a corporate content management system that maximizes support for the ideology of Agile ECM and case management approaches, "comments its president and executive director Daniel Shields
