Recommendations for Document Archiving/Library Solution?

  • 1.  Recommendations for Document Archiving/Library Solution?

    Posted Nov 20, 2018 14:52
    Hi Folks,

    Our organization is looking for a document library / archiving solution.  We are currently using an old (on-premise) HP solution called TRIM.  Can anyone recommend a 3rd party, hosted solution?

    Many thanks!

    Hiya, John -

    I'm working with a nonprofit now on their installation of M-Files, which is a highly-capable document management system with a hosted version.  Their key value lies in how easily M-Files manages metadata, a critical feature for document management.

    Lighter/leaner solutions we looked at during the evaluation phase included:

          Shelf (shelf.io) - Affordable, easy to use, nonprofit pricing available

          Box.org  - Closer to a file share solution, but they're adding more document management features all the time.

         SharePoint online - Also affordable, recently much improved, and tightly integrated with Word, Excel, etc.

    These are just a few, top-of-mind solutions out of the 85 we reviewed.  It'd help to know more about your objectives, of course, before making a recommendation, but I hope this helps as a starting point and feel free to reach out if you'd care to discuss in detail!
