  • Current projects: Briefing System – rolled out to 8,000 personnel. Provides timely updating of information and draws data from other systems eg. RMS / Altaris / Holmes Crime Reporting - self-service for public to log calls with ingestion into internal system. H.R. Document Management (in pilot) Fire Arms Document Management (on roadmap) Intranet (in development)The Briefing System we have developed uses as one of its components an installation of Alfresco Version 3.4.7 as a document store in which we are able to hold content for our dynamic Briefing Slideshows (these Web Based slideshows replace what were previously manually assembled PowerPoint presentations). All interactions with Alfresco are done via our own custom Alfresco WebScripts using CMIS. We store text based documents and image files. We are utilising the Alfresco Image Rendition engine to automatically create copies of our images to different sizes so we can then select the most size appropriate file when passing images back out to a calling application. The information that is stored in Alfresco can then be accessed in an efficient manner by our user base across multiple sites connected by our WAN. Ultimately our user base will run into the thousands as it encompasses all Police Officers and operational staff of all levels. In this delivery Alfresco has been used as a content store for information that does not naturally fit into any of our other systems. It has given us a secure reliable way of storing/retrieving content whilst also offering other nice gems such as the automatic image renditions. 
  • Give you back control of your content and where its locatedWe’re initially hosting in the US, will follow up with EU, but with this solution, it won’t really matter, you can store your content anywhere
  • Cloud should be there to enable you to open up your content securely for B2B collaboration across the firewall.Cloud should be there to enable you to quickly share your content across mobile devicesAnd Cloud should enable you to use other Cloud services without losing control of your contentWe understand that 80-90% of your content is going to stay behind the firewall, that you need to have that System of Record that you control, that complies with your rules and regulations, but for the other 10-20% of content that is being sent across the firewall, perhaps right as an email attachment, or through the backdoor via DropBox, that's where Cloud fits into your architecture. And at Alfresco we're in a unique position to provide and bridge both sides of your firewall securely.
  • And you, and your users can sign up to be part of our Beta launch right nowWe are looking for customers with teams that need a solution like this right now to participate in our Beta Program
  • Numerous content-centric projects in process and on roadmap:Housing Management Office  project – private landlords submit their applications and supporting documents online Housing Maintenance - staff performing repairs on council properties can upload images such as certificates of gas inspections captured on smartphones
