“Alfresco was the only ECM suite that met our
requirements…Open Source and Open Standards were
critical to our decision.Alfresco was not only open source
but supported key Government directions such as PDF,
ODF and JSR-170.”
Daren Gillespie, Network Administrator
“We could clearly see the benefits of Alfresco over our
existing system. We now have the ability to manage our
process and workflows in ways we could only do after
placing a call to our developers. This represents a major
opportunity to change and enhance the way we work.”
Geoff Pettifor, Director of Development
“Alfresco saved AVS millions and provided a flexible
licensing model while meeting and exceeding our
technical, functional, ease-of-use, and support
requirements. We are excited to be a part of open
source ECM and confident in Alfresco’s commitment to
customer satisfaction and ECM innovation.”
