SIMPLE-SMART-SWIFT. FFred brings ECM closer to your users. It looks like MS Explorer and acts like Alfresco. You can drag & drop anything, including documents, emails and attachments, URL’s in and out of Fred. Super-fast browsing and preview (incl e-mail). The Fred design aims to reach zero training for the end user and 100% user adoption.

Fred is an easy-to-use window, boosting Alfresco for your End-users. It provides a smooth integration of Alfresco ECM with the desktop working environment of your end-user. It allows you to easily handle your documents with any desktop application (MS Explorer, MS Office, Open Office, …) and archive your emails (Outlook, Thunderbird…).

Fred supports the day-to-day handling of documents and does it very intuitive and super-fast. It guides the users on the input of metadata and supports corporate document templates for the creation of new documents.

Fred helps the mind shift of the users from their C drive to the centralized document repository on Fred/Alfresco. Reducing the time to search and handle documents, saving 15 min per day, makes it more attractive to work with Fred.

Additionally Fred works the same way both on your local network and outside the office. Fred is fun to work with.
