How it works

Why use Owly?

Why Owly

Powerful search

Search and find any information in seconds, whether it's in documents, images, presentations, receipts, contracts, etc.  Due to our OCR and tagging you can find any content in seconds, without the need to reorganize or remember where you put it.

Smart tagging

No more folder structure. Use our tagging system to easily sort your documents. You can tag every document with keywords, e.g. tax or bill, for easy retrieval and a great overview. It's a super-easy way to manage your information without making it too complex. 

Boost your productivity

We know you are busy. That's why we want to offer you a better way for document management. With a beautiful interface and easy-to-use features, you no longer have to spend hours digging through folders or piles of documents. We empower your productivity.

About us

Why are we building Owly?

Home: About us

We created Owly because none of the existing solutions for smart document management worked for us. As knowledge workers we work with lots of information which we need at various points in time. And we hate to spend massive amounts of time searching for relevant content and information as well as for structuring our information.


Enter Owly. Say goodbye to slow searches and document chaos. Live smarter with Owly!

That is the goal and our mission. We are committed to delivering an indispensable service for document management. We are creating Owly for knowledge work professionals — engineers, product managers, lawyers, architects, consultants, project managers and more.
