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.

If there is a desire to extract text from emails, documents, spreadsheets, and faxes this is the perfect platform for that. The only thing it does, extracting information, it does well. External information in terms of flat files, databases, and web services can be tied into the platform as well to allow line item matching, address validation, and other features that make it just an overall great ingestion system.

Cons

  • Our greatest need for Alfresco ECM is the functionality to generate public URLS for content. We've accomplished this through our Drupal integration, but at times, it would be very useful to be able to make Alfresco content publicly available without this added layer.
  • Many of our other concerns have been addressed in the latest version and we look forward to that implementation.

  • Improvement of number and date recognition in check stubs

As per the current market and the line of products that are available for content and document management system, Alfresco is a very good option compared to other systems in terms of features and cost. Plus the community support is great. Also since the product is open source, it can be extended or understood in a better way.

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.

Kofax is quicker when searching mass amounts of documents and data. Any filters would bring up immediate information, whereas in Access the database is slower.
