Drupal - The perfect frontend for document management


A common problem with Document Management Systems (DMS) is the fact that they don’t have a very user-friendly Interface. To build one, is a complex and time consuming process. Drupal can solve this problem by integrating with any document management system and provide a more intutive user experience.

By using a CMS like Drupal we have the best of all worlds. For example, Drupal can provide an effective and user-friendly document browser and can use functions like document conversion provided by the DMS. Also on top of Drupal we can use Javascript libraries and plugins like PDF.js , annotatorjs for the user’s convenience. In most companies, employees use multiple systems to manage content/information and documents. The intention is to bring all systems to one place and also give the user a more convenient experience. This is an optimal solution for large organizations, small companies and a good module addition for company intranets.

In this session I will mention the benefits of this combination and demonstrate this concept with two document management systems, Alfresco and Box. Don’t miss out on this session. This could be a problem solver for your company or organization.
