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.

FileBound

Filebound is great for documents that have been archived or not needed on a day to day basis. It serves it purpose as a storage/filing system to digitize any previous "hard copy" filing system. But for the day to day accessibility, I find other programs to be more responsive and quicker to use. Also, In order to use or edit any document uploaded to Filebound, you currently have to re-download the document onto your computer to edit. If the editing capabilities were streamlined for quicker response that would also be a plus.

Pros

  • Alfresco is able to handle a very large number of documents without requiring huge server capacity.
  • Alfresco is able to connect to the cloud solution and to share documents with an external organisation without security issues.
  • Alfresco implements standards like CMIS, and provides very simple integration points.

  • Filebound is easily to upload documents onto and file into the proper location. You can easily find a file on your computer and have it uploaded within seconds
  • Filebound gives you customization so you can create your own folders, criteria needed to file and search for uploaded documents. You have options of file types, names, certain fields of information to display when searching for files.
  • Filebound allows you to download and print your saved documents quickly for future access. There is no limit to how you can use your scanned documents

Cons

  • Documentation can be challenging -There can be pages of documentation on features and api methods, but they often lack real world examples and are quite often out of date
  • Early adoption of features can be problematic - Alfresco seems to change quickly and often trying to use newer features can be frustrating. Especially when they keep tweaking/modifying functionality between versions. There has been cases (IE: Records Management) where they've completely re-worked how it works.
  • Customization of share interface seems cludgy and sometimes limiting

  • Searching for Documents. Filebound does not allow you to look in differing file types for a specific document. You have to search each file type individually. And we have found that spaces or symbols are needed in front of the entered search information in order for Filebound to do a more broad search.
  • You cannot move uploaded around, if you have more than one scan in a file. Once they are uploaded into a location, you cannot move it, you can only delete it and re-scan it into the proper file.
  • If it was possible to simply drag and drop a file into Filebound to start the upload process, that would save time.

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.

Return on Investment

  • One company has replaced the Documentum with Alfresco and it has created a positive impact on ROI, as the cost of Alfresco is less compared to Documentum.
  • Another company has used this platform to store Statement of work documents with integration of SFDC., The business is happy to see the integration is seamless.

  • I don't have numbers, but our organization was able to go from having three large off-site and one on-site storage units to having none. This saved money on a monthly and yearly basis.
