I have been tasked with improving our office’s digital/paper workflow. We have an office of about 30 people and right now all of our documents (contracts, proposals and other text documents) are stored on a shared network drive and it’s up to each user to file their own documents which has led to disorganization. What easy-to-use software or service could we use to systematically collect feedback and approvals on documents, and also store completed documents for future access? [more inside]

I'm looking for an open-source alternative to SharePoint for a small workgroup. The main thing we need is reasonably robust document management/distribution, but other features (workgroup calendaring, etc.) would be useful. We're using a wiki now to distribute docs and we need better metadata, version control, etc.
The solution needs to run on Linux (ideally). The obvious candidates seem to be Alfresco Community Edition
, but I have zero practical experience using or administering either. Thanks in advance, hive mind, for any tips or advice you can offer.

Document Management Software? I work in a small (less than 10 ppl) company. We all save documents to a common drive. Of late, this has become a problem because we have multiple people working on different versions of the same document. So for Example person A may save a document to the common drive and also send copies of the document to persons B and C to review. B and C will make their edits save the edited documents to the common drive.
It's gotten to the point where no one can locate the latest version of a document or find the copy of the document they were working on. When it's time to present a document, no one knows which document is the latest version. We've tried saving documents with initials and the date, but that hasn't worked.
Any software or system recommendations to solve this problem would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I get a lot of paper documents (bills, letters, invoices, etc) and want to catalog them digitally. I want a program that scans a sheet (or multiple sheets), turns them into PDF and catalogs them (title, category, and maybe even del.icio.us style tags). Acrobat will do the first two stages, but I want something that does the cataloging too. Any suggestions? OCR not needed whatsoever.
