Document Management with Office Integration
Are you lost in the file share chaos? Kentico CMS allows you to organize your documents in Document Libraries, control access, track document versions and even use workflow and approval processes. Moreover, the full-text search will help you find the files more easily.
Kentico CMS supports the WebDAV protocol which means you can open your documents directly from Microsoft Office as well as some other applications, make changes and save the updated document directly to your intranet without any additional steps.
Manage Projects and Tasks
Do you want to know the status of projects at any time? Do you want to check the progress of the task you assigned at the last meeting? The Project Management module allows you to easily manage your project tasks, as well as ad-hoc tasks assigned to other people. Your employees will always know what to do and will be able to better recognize the priorities.
Quickly Deploy Departmental Sites
With Kentico CMS, every department can have their own site in a few minutes. The administrator can predefine the structure of departmental sites and then quickly clone it for every department. Of course, the departmental sites can be further customized with specific pages or features and they can have a custom theme.
Collaborate in Workgroups
Need to empower your employees with a powerful solution for collaboration? One of the Enteprise 2.0 concepts supported by Kentico CMS are workgroups that can be created by any user. The workgroup owner can then invite others to share documents, project tasks or wiki pages related to a particular project.
Should I Use Kentico or SharePoint?
Kentico CMS was built as a flexible Content Management System that allows you to manage your intranet pages and easily integrate additional features either using the built-in modules or using your custom code.
SharePoint was built as a document management solution that allows you to organize your files.
If you're already using SharePoint but do not find it flexible for intranet or website content management, you can use the Kentico CMS SharePoint Connector and display documents and other content from SharePoint within your intranet or public website running on Kentico CMS.
