Review of Alfresco ECM Content Services

  • January 30, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Alfresco ECM Content Services has been a very popular Enterprise Content Management (ECM) tool having both Open source and Enterprise versions. The open source version popularly called as Alfresco Community version has been there for more than 10 years and has a huge active community which answers the questions, contributes to the Alfresco ECM plugin repository and share their blogs with details on enhancements and customizations. Alfresco Content Services normally referred to the Enterprise version with Alfresco support has been there since quiet sometime and been popular as well. Alfresco Content Services has wide variety of customers across the industry. Alfresco Content services is a very good ECM tool that includes Document management and Web content managment features. Its a very scalable product that is been tested and recommended by a large community. Alfresco is also slowly releasing the PAAS version with the latest versions.
What do you dislike?
Alfresco is a very popular product and has very less demerits. One important demerit of Alfresco Content Services is initial learning curve, the user neeed to undergo initial training to start using Alfresco Content Services and it might be little difficult to get started without any training unless the user is tech savvy. Another demerit of Alfresco Content Services has been its Alfresco Share User Interface, though Alfresco has introduced Alfresco Digital workspace based on Angular UI but that needs additional learning and training to support. Unlike many other ECM tool, Alfresco support needs additional expertise and experience.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Alfresco Content Services is used to solve any Document Management related pain areas for any organization. As it also has the ECM features, It is a very popular tool for all ECM implementations and Record Management implementations.

Alfresco - Document Solutions

  • September 26, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This software is a solution to going paperless (if you have not already). It allows multiple users to access documents, and folders to be created to easily organize documents according to your needs. You can also send hyperlinks to others that will take them straight to the document in question.
What do you dislike?
It's slow to load documents, and requires files to be renamed if you wish to search by file name.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Alfresco Content Services allows cross-collaboration between departments. In higher education, departments are often siloed and this software helps institutions function as more of an ecosystem rather than individualized departments.

Excellent document repository solution, but a heavy lift

  • April 04, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's very extensible and capable, but it's a mighty ship. It requires a knowledgeable team to maintain and build upon. It's very powerful and robust, especially it's permission schemes and flexibility.
What do you dislike?
Our version is not mobile friendly, and it would be good if it had the ability to embed some content on a website. In a time when many apps are turning to a simpler, self-serve model for IT, Alfresco still has UX quirks that require training and maintenance to wrangle. For instance, it's possible to replace a PDF with a PowerPoint and effectively break the link to the document, without warning the used they are replacing one file type with another.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Content repository, permissions and content delivery. It has given our users to manage more of the content on their own.

Enterprise-level software: Great for managing company documents

  • October 26, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Alfresco organizes your documents in a systematic way. It also allows you to keep track of all documents' versions and know the movement of documents. As long as you have internet access, you can access documents saved in your Alfresco system. You can also collaborate on them remotely. Since its also based on Open Source, you can easily integrate Alfresco with other systems and extend its capabilities.
What do you dislike?
Interface could be more user friendly. They've already revamped it some months or almost a year back, but the interface can still feel a bit intimidating. Perhaps they could also improve the collaboration functionalities.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We needed a way to store our documents that allowed us to access it from anywhere since we had operations across the country and internationally. We needed to be able to see and recover past versions if needed. While it lacks the easy collaborative tools that other content management systems have, we still use Alfresco as our final document storage system.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
There are plenty of enterprise content management systems out there, but if you want to take advantage brought through using Open Source technology, then Alfresco is for you. Since Alfresco is designed with enterprise processes in mind, expect that its capabilities will also be for enterprise level. Its a very big step up from Google Drive 's content management capabilities so you should adopt Alfresco with the knowledge that it may change your document management processes if that's where you're moving from.

Alfresco works but could be more intuitive

  • January 19, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I personally like how "sites" are setup not to be just a document repository but in my case as a project dashboard.
What do you dislike?
It is not intuitive, showing a new person around is a challenge. It is also buggy in some ways like with rolling log files that build up on the HD. In one instance I have to manually remove them or the server locks up.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Mostly document respository. Although as mentioned about we use it for a project dashboard.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
