Good document management tool

  • August 26, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The thing that I like the most about Alfresco is that it does not require any special installation, one can use it through a web browser. Document management becomes easier with it.
What do you dislike about the product?
It is very slow. It takes a lot of time to download files.
No clear instructions are provided for navigating
User interface is quite dull
Document updating can be worked upon
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use it to upload huge files and to have access on them whenever I need them. I can also add other users who can view and access the same files at the same time. The ease of creating multiple folders really helps me to manage my daily tasks.

Review of Alfresco ECM Content Services

  • January 30, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
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 about the product?
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 is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
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.

An open source ECM with lots of features.

  • June 23, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Alfresco is one of the few OpenSource ECMs available out in the market.
The community edition is free with basic features but for enterprise level usage license cost is involved. Alfresco is robust, scalable, with a lot of scope for integration and custom development as per the business need.
UI is clean and users are easy to train also, additional UI enabler tools can be integrated with Alfresco to enhance the UI capabilities.
Being web based, it's easy to access the ECM from anywhere, any browser.
What do you dislike about the product?
Though alfresco is OpenSource, the extended enterprise level features are licensed at a cost.
UI is clean, but requires users to scroll up and down through the entire webpage to get information about the documents - there is a lot of scope for addition of UI features.
Document import is a little slow.
The organisation will strictly need a skilled recource to help maintain the sotware.
Performance is also slower as compared to other ECMs.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Alfresco is cost effective solution to our business need of a central repository for document storage and access.
It's easy to be used by the end users.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you would like to have a ECM for basic usage and light weight implementation then alfresco is a good choice.
Support is excellent.

Alfresco - Document Solutions

  • September 29, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
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 about the product?
It's slow to load documents, and requires files to be renamed if you wish to search by file name.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
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 06, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
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 about the product?
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 is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Content repository, permissions and content delivery. It has given our users to manage more of the content on their own.
