"Powerful content management and workflow software"
Commentaires: It's a tool you don't know you need until you use it. My company has shared drives, SharePoint, Teams, and of course e-mail so content (multiple versions too - sound familiar?) is all over the place. As a content management professional, I've advocated to management that the official "system of record" for ANY documents needs to be in ELO so we can all work smarter.
Avantages: Several things really stand out with ELO. First, when you put content in ELO - documents, email, invoices, or whatever - you can find it later. Search is great (it uses Elasticsearch under the hood). Second, it's great for archiving. You can set up a filing plan, easily build a workflow and whatever needs archiving based on retention schedules, policies, etc., is done automatically. Finally, it integrates with our ERP system, which is nice because I can see 'just enough' customer information - like, did they pay an invoice - without having to get someone to look it up (I'm not in the accounting department), which can be a pain since I work remotely.
Inconvénients: Although it integrates with Microsoft Office nicely, you can't really edit documents in "real time" with other team members like you can in Microsoft Teams. That said, there is a feature called the 'feed' that is basically a chat window where other team members can add comments in real time when a document is being edited.
