Alfresco ECM - CMS implementation

We are pleased to announce another implementation of a CMS system for a large Melbourne based fitness center - Star Plate Studio.

Atcomm has deployed a custom implementation of a much talked about ECM solution - Alfresco. Given it's strengths in the ECM space, we have implemented this open source Java content management system. Unlike the usual features of document and records management Alfresco is able to integrate with your network of documents and active directory - see the features list below.

One of the main advantages to note is that it offers an enterprise content management platform built on open source software, which companies use for document management, web content management, and collaboration. Alfresco isn't the only open source ECM platform, but on the document management and collaboration front, it is perhaps the biggest.

Some of the key features deployed within this solution are:
  • A new improved management interface
  • Ability to add records and images to the content of a page
  • An improved search engine
  • AJAX interfaces that adhere to Web 2.0 standards
  • Publish new articles on the fly
  • Add code to an article (like a Google Ad)
  • The addition of mashups, site maps, RSS news feeds and more
  • Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.0 includes Alfresco Share which is perhaps one of the best options in Alfresco.
  • Document Library includes thumbnails, flash document viewer, bulk upload of content, meta-data, tags, multi-select and RSS feeds.
  • Activity feeds provide users with updates on what changes have taken place
  • Creation of virtual teams - for communities and projects, with both internal and external members;
  • Personalized dashboard - contains rich interactive interface enabling users to configure a customizable dashboard
  • Creation of content using familiar tools such as MS Office, wikis, blogs
  • Rapid application development environment - uses lightweight scripting and reusable components avoiding .Net and Java...
  • N-tier architecture delivers scalability without massive hardware or software investment and accommodates more users on existing hardware resources; and
  • Draft CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) specification implementation provides users with a platform for developing and testing applications.
