Hi together,

in the past few days I tried about 5 different DMS and get back again at Alfresco.
Perhaps you can help me and answer my questions.

We are looking for a simple dokucument management system, where documents can easily be uploaded (DOC, PDF, Tif) and search the content in the documents.

I installed already the demo version and it looks very powerful.

My questions:

1) Is it possible to search my documents in the Alfesco-database  through my office-application or do I have to  search through the Internet Explorer?
2) Is ist possible to upload several documents at once ?
3) What system requirements do I need for my server, to have fast search results through ~1000 documents each with 100 pages. Can I use normal servers?
4) Can Alfresco bei installed from typical IT-administrator or do I need for a profesional company?
5) Is there any OCR possibility?
6) Are there any clients avaible, so the users get the search result/upload documents without the need to login via the browser?

Thanks in advance.
