Alfresco ECM

If you have regulatory or business needs that require saving email into Alfresco and you are using Outlook for Mac, you may need to perform significant customization to make it work. Additionally, if you will have users that will be members to a large numbers of sites over time, you need to thoroughly explore what functionality will be degraded or lost and how to mitigate the impact. Other than these two scenarios, I cannot think of any scenarios where Alfresco would not be well suited to an organization's needs.

Asana

If you are working with a cross-functional team with multiple projects on the go regularly, Asana is a lifesaver. Everything can be shared in one place. Delegation is a breeze. Communication happens in real-time.If you and your employees all have unchanging duties daily, this probably isn't something you need in your organization. You could adapt it and use it as a "checklist software" but I wouldn't see much value in paying for it if you won't use it to manage projects.

Pros

Alfresco ECM

  • The best tools of Asana are found once we start a project, since the calendar that is integrated into our mail is super easy to use and we use it as a small agenda.
  • The management of projects is incredible, the monitoring provided is one of the best in its category, since it facilitates group work.
  • The creation and assignment of tasks, notifications and that each person can enter to work no matter where it is since it has a good mobile and web interface.

Cons

Alfresco ECM

  • Some more APIs can be added although the existing APIs very well provide the required features.
  • Their other tools such as collaboration, etc need to be marketed well so that companies adopt Alfresco as a whole package.
  • Alfresco needs to be on the lookout for immediately introducing any new functions provided by other competitive products.

  • I wish it implemented easier with Outlook or Gmail. I would like for it to be easier to send tasks from email to Asana.
  • I think there's room for improvement in terms of how easy it is to make new Section Headers for tasks and lists.
  • I'd like for more aspects of the interface to be customizable.

The Alfresco market is bigger and bigger and it's logic. It's really a product that provides innovation quite often. Alfresco implements the standard CMIS 1.1 (before that the standard has been published), they provides interesting tools like IPhone apps or Android apps. The latest 4.2 version provides as well a new re-branded user interface.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

Asana is very easy to use, you don't need to read any guide to understand how to use it. Works well on almost any device and navigator and the interface is friendly to everyone. Creating a task is easy, following them is also easy and the comments between people involved in the tasks are public, so anyone can follow the task if the employee assigned is not available at a specific moment.

Process was relatively smooth and overall, downtime minimal. MSI was very responsive to our needs and made the transition easier than it otherwise might have been.

Alternatives Considered

Alfresco ECM

All software has some pros and some cons. Alfresco has some good pluses, and suits our environment very well. It fit perfectly in the place that we are working on. That is why we decided to go with this software. Overall, the kind of content management that needs to be done in an organization is what would determine which software to use.

There were a combination of factors that led us to decide on Asana, including ease of use and external system integrations, but primarily we could use it across geographically distributed offices successfully and incorporate a variety of end user work flows based on global geography, team constitution, and market focus

Return on Investment

Alfresco ECM

  • Instant document lookup - No paper files to mail which saves in all areas of postage, truck delivery, physical storage warehouse space, printing, etc
  • No longer losing important documents - Previously with paper files things would go missing and those could be costly reports/assessments.
  • Ability to secure documents and provide access to only those who should be allowed to see that content

  • We went from disorganized to having our processes fully documented. This allows for projects to be duplicated and started faster, increasing my margins.
  • Less opportunity for missed tasks or confusion.
  • Progress checking always available and easy to use (for our clients)
