Question

Cloud-based document management

So, I run a small business and while I've been trying to get by using just some free Dropbox/Google Drive combo for my document management needs, it becomes increasingly clear that I need a dedicated solution (because of the metadata mostly). I would not pay more than $10 a month for it and I just despise ugly interfaces. Which dramatically decreases the amount of options Happy So, I have come down to two I like the most. One is Alfresco which is, as I understand, quite a household name for a document management system, but I have a feeling they might be too big for me, more of an enterprise product? Looks nice but I can't actually find any pricing information which leads me to think it's for bigger fish than me. The second is www.folderit.com that looks lovely and actually seems to do everything I need for the price I want. BUT, I'm wondering, is there any alternative at all? So I could choose between some at least. I know it sounds a bit whiny but I like choice Happy

Thanks in advance!

This one looks to be new, small and out to prove themselves. Avoid or take a chance?

Thank you both! The link WebOutGateway provided was very helpful and now I have checked and compared all relevant options. It seems I had indeed found the most suitable one almost by accident and stick with that (Folderit), but the main thing is I can now feel at peace with the choice I made Happy Thanks again guys!

Check-out the ones for your niche!

In reply to: Cloud-based document management

Well !!
Although there are many of those who provide cloud solutions for file management. But then as per your wish to opt for a dedicated solution which is more costlier than the shared one. Also different cloud service providers have their expertise in different segments for instance, some are specialists in serving the accountants, some to other section of professionals (talking about the businesses). So do a bit of research as per your niche of work and then go for it.
