Alfresco & Google Docs
More Choice Without Sacrificing Productivity
Google Docs is an obvious choice for people needing a more collaborative Microsoft Office alternative. But – although it’s easy to use, it comes at the expense of streamlined business processes.
Luckily Alfresco integrates seamlessly with Google Docs. Users can easily edit documents with Alfresco’s check-in feature, without sacrificing your organization’s business process capabilities.
“Knowledge workers whose companies allow them to help decide when, where, and how they work were more likely to be satisfied with their jobs, performed better, and viewed their company as more innovative than competitors that didn’t offer such choices.”
- Harvard Business Review
Great for Individuals, Bad for the Organization?
Employees have productivity tools left, right and centre. Google Docs is a worthy alternative to the traditional Office suite. But you still need to maintain complete control over the organization’s content.
People will find a way
Too many employees using different tools won’t make for effective collaboration. Without Google Docs, they’ll just find another solution
Data lost in personal clouds
Creating content with Google Docs is easy. Managing that content is where things start to get tricky
Business processes need input
Documents don’t stand alone. They’re a key part of business processes. But employees won’t manage them manually

Not only can workers create content in a way that suits them, they can save it centrally where you can manage it properly. Alfresco provides the infrastructure for files while Google Docs allows users to edit content and collaborate in real-time.
