Can you find the critical information you need when you need it?
Are you drowning in paper, documents scattered in file cabinets and file shares, with processes that take too long and compliance too difficult to achieve?
An integral part of any organization is efficient processes, but few companies have the right process in place for their content, making it hard for users to work because they can’t find what they need when they need it.
Alfresco solves these business challenges by helping organizations streamline document centric business processes and cases. With Alfresco, every user group has access to documents in the right business context and right application. And since documents, processes and use cases can be accessed via any standard web browser, from within many Office applications and mobile devices, processes do not stop at the boundary of the enterprise and users are optimally supported in their way of working.
Alfresco makes it easy to define and automate the critical processes that run your business. The result is increased efficiency, cost savings, improved customer and employee satisfaction, and consistent achievement of compliance.

Wesley Institute is Australia's first Christian arts college and its previous learning management system was severely under utilized. The College had common documents such as study guide manuals, feedback forms and style guides to add across 42 units. Previously, these searches had taken a day and a half to render and now with Alfresco, it takes just 12 minutes.
