Alfresco ECM

Alfresco is more suited for almost all working environment that deals with paper, companies which are trendy, vibrant media, techie, courier logistics companies and insurance companies as well. Irrespective of the environment, it less appropriate to introduce the usage to people above 40 who are less interested in any form of new technology development.

iManage Work

iManage Work is a great solution for a smaller business. It provides a quick, easy way to store and share documents. It works with Outlook, which almost everyone utilizes, so it's a good way to get into document management. iManage Work is capable of scaling, but it is not necessarily the best solution for it. There are many other solutions that scale very nicely for enterprise size.

iManage Work

  • Complicated setup. On initial installation it is cumbersome to configure on each workstation just to connect to service.
  • Does not enforce structure. Once setting up structure, users can save outside of iManage Work and make their own files and folders under pre-configured system.
  • Outlook is a finicky software, access to iManage Work depends on Outlook, nothing against iManage Work, but it sometimes has issues caused by the application it relies on.

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.

iManage Work

Worldox and Worldox Enterprise do a superb job for document management. iManage Work has the edge in that it's cloud hosted, but so is Worldox Enterprise. Worldox forces assimilation by integrating with Office applications and controlling where items are saved to. iManage Work does not enforce this habit or policy. NetDocuments is very similar to iManage Work but relies much more heavily on browser based access. This may be preferable to iManage Work as one can simply use a browser to access data versus a complicated Outlook configuration.
