Axiom File Cabinet: Enhance Your Content Management

AxiomFileCabinet offers true open-source Enterprise Content Management (ECM). Traditional Document Management has its roots in complex document vaults accessed by document librarians. These have historically been developed as large, complex, enterprise software applications. This has caused document management systems to be complex and difficult to use, very costly, and have a very low adoption rate – typically 5% of users. To overcome this hurdle, the open-source architecture of AxiomFileCabinet offers features and an interface that users are familiar with and use on a daily basis. This includes:

  • Shared drive for storage
  • Email for Collaboration
  • Google for search
  • Yahoo for categorization
  • Folder structures and content for project plans

Social Engagement Management

AxiomFileCabinet offers document management using familiar interfaces to get rapid user adoption built on a repository that offers transparent services for full ECM:

  • Virtual File System – Replace shared drives and offer the same interface
  • Email-like rules – Configure plug-in rules to automate manual processing and offer out-of-sight compliance
  • Google-like search – Search directly from Chrome, Firefox or IE
  • Yahoo-like browsing – Automatic meta-data extraction and categorization
  • SmartSpaces – Best practice collaboration spaces
  • Transparent life cycle support

  • Dramatically increased user adoption – for all users across systems
  • Dramatically reduced cost and TCO
