The reality is that most organizations’ enterprise content management strategy involves keeping critical documents on their personal computers or in a shared drive that they push around the organization using e-mail.
These home-grown solutions are little more than file storage systems that offer no control once a document has left your outbox.
True ECM platform solutions provide the necessary context around critical documents including file name, subject, review and approval history, invoice number, customer ID and much, much more.
These enterprises content management platform systems can absolutely transform the way you manage content and collaboration in your organization, but buyer beware: some are much better than others.
Many companies have documents stored all over the place – on desktop computers, laptops, network drives, email, USB sticks and various consumer file sharing sites. And with contracts stored by customer, invoices by month, case files by case number, and consulting reports by year, it is difficult to get a 360° view of a customer’s information, which makes effective collaboration almost impossible.
Alfresco enables you to manage your business critical documents like contracts, proposals, agreements, marketing and sales materials, as well as technical renderings and manuals. With Alfresco, you have full version control, ensuring that you always have the right version of the file you need, and full access from anywhere, any time.
Alfresco saves valuable time otherwise wasted searching for information and recreating misplaced documents, and eliminates mistakes and costs associated with using the wrong version. Alfresco is the only open source document management system that makes your business critical documents smarter and more actionable, enabling your company to work together more effectively.
