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.

OnBase by Hyland

Hyland Onbase is simple, effective, and just works for when it comes to content management systems. Many companies rely on static folder structures for storing information or Excel/Access tables which can easily become a mess whereas with Onbase every document is unique and access can be restricted/audited depending on user permissions. It allows for a company to easily take control of their information and be more productive.

  • The multiple licenses can be tricky to manage and can cause some backup in the process.
  • The license approval process is also quite a pain sometimes, as it can stall important requests.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Alfresco provides by default a very user-friendly user interface, And it's highly configurable. Moreover, the license model is really interesting compared to both solutions

I have not used alternate products similar to OnBase by Hyland. This software was implemented into our processes before I became a member of this team. I have not considered the need to seek similar products given that OnBase provides our organization with the desired results. As far as I know, we will continue to stick with OnBase.

Return on Investment

  • 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

  • OnBase has proven to be very useful in state-wide collaboration between the various agencies we do business with.
  • It handles ECM quite well, and has become an integral part of development at the state of Nebraska.
