Previously, we were using SharePoint for document management but have now upgraded to OpenText ECM. While SharePoint provided basic functionality, OpenText has enhanced our records management capability. The ability to customize workflow is vastly improved to match our complex processes.
OpenText is an expensive solution driven by the need for compliance standards.
For those who require strict compliance standards.
Document management with compliance focus.
Minimizing paper stuff, faster document loading, reduce the risks associated with human factor, time and financial saving, storing all documents in easy-accessible way.
Integration. Takes a hell of a time. And its hard to train people who works with it.
Sometimes loading takes more time, even if there are no problems with server and etc.
The main business problem. Document automation. You don't have to run with papers all around
It was set up for us by Consultants approx 8 yrs ago.
it was relatively clunky to use and not very intuitive at the time. Add-ons were pricey so we weren't able to take advantage of all the bells and whistles we saw in training.
shop around to see if OpenText meets your needs
we moved to Adobe
The UI/layout is a bit more usability-friendly as compared to other ECM products in the market, but the core features are pretty much run of the mill and not really distinct from the rest of the ECM/DCM players out there.
Their product support is very passive and slow to respond to customer queries and requests for extended support. Their SLAs for support tickets tend to lag for days before any significant feedback/analysis is provided. A lot of their out-of-the-box features will only address 60% to 70% of your organization's core business ECM requirements and when you request even consultation on how to expand the features (or even explore configuration/customization), they would already state that this is out of scope and would upsell you to pay additional premiums for these. To be more specific, in terms of detailed layering of user permissions to access certain content, managing access for internal and external users...the out of the box features of OpenText are quite limiting and getting the features to handle special use-cases unfortunately require configuration that can only be addressed by tech support (services at cost). There were also lack of available trained/learned professionals who can provide internal/contracted support.
Won't really recommend it. Too costly, too limiting and not enough trained resources available to support
It only solved basic, high level enterprise content management requirements but as to the deeper, more granular use cases of our requirements, it didn't really address them with the out of the box features. Our organization had to shell out hundreds of thousands of $$ to extend the capabilities of the ECM solution.
The very best feature is the data ID on every item in the system, let you validate you are looking at the right item. Link won't break when altering the title, moving or updating the item. Workflow is the next coolest thing been using them for the last 20 years and they are extremely stable.
It's appearance out of the box and the fact regular content server doesn't have a calendar.
It's a very stable environment and the open API allows access by other software platforms
Locations utilizing workflow for management of change, document approval, etc. As long as the workflow is not deleted you can always get back to it using the data id.
The document management software is really good, allowing us to set and manage document lifecycles. The project management module is also very helpful. Opentext tech support is very good.
Maintenance of the indexing servers and file servers is quite complicated. The ECM everywhere module requires lots of setup, and a simple upgrade is a very long process.
Use tech support to implement, take the time to do it right!
Document management, project management.
