Document Management Tool and Collaboration Enterprise Software

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: My Documentary Management Processes were satisfied. Creation of PDF, Digital signature, Sending of documents to users of the system. Viewing the PDF online. Ensure the regulatory compliance of my company by classifying the documents.

Pros:

The most remarkable thing about Alfresco ECM is the unification of tools, the design and structure of tools that allow the design and fulfillment of the rules of documentary processes and business collaboration. Alfresco is a complex and wide-ranging tool in the Document Management and Collaboration segments.

Cons:

What could improve is the ease of use in the overall communication tool. Currently a mediun user is required to operate the system and thus achieve a correct document flow. Sometimes Cmis interaction could be a problem, most cmis programs have some dificult to connect like cmisSync.

Rigid, outdated document management and content sharing platform

2.0 4 years ago

Comments: We used Alfresco as the company's main document management and sharing tool for several years. It was adequate but constraining, and over time the feature differential with more advanced tools became increasingly evident.

Pros:

Good flexibility in adding coworkers alongside external guests to document repositories. Good security measures on stored files. Not many redeeming features beyond this.

Cons:

Poor interface, with no OS integrations (only web interface), no drag & drop, counter-intuitive control placement, key features nestled deep into menus.

Great CMS for SMBs

4.0 6 years ago

Pros:

I like the customization features, the work flow options, and it's compatibility with many file types. It makes searching for documents a breeze and keeping your content well organised in varying Projects/Sites. I particularly like the Dashboard setting on each site, that allows you to customize your overview of that project, giving visual to members, who is working on what files, and a live browser frame to keep you in the loop if your project is website based.

Cons:

The interface could use some work, I find the usability takes some time to get into in order to unlock all the features and functionality available to you. The documentation is a useful assistant in getting around the software.
