In this article an extension to the CMS Alfresco is proposed, in order to reduce costs involved with the creation of a custom front-end and make it more efficient the issue of document management.
An organization often has to manage a large number of documents, such as bills, transport documents, technical documentation, production orders and so forth. This large amount of documents would require a lower storage space and would be more easily retrieved if they were digitalized. For instance, bills coming from vendors could be scanned and converted to an electronic format, other documents could be created directly in a digitalized version, through some office applications or other information systems.
