Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"One of the most valuable features is FileNet's ability to capture things from the stack, from e-mail, to scanning of Excel and Word. FileNet can also convert many types of files to PDFs very easily.""FileNet has the capabilities to meet compliance and regulatory requirements. It is very secure.""FileNet is very user-friendly... We have business users using and it is quite friendly for them.""The application, in terms of durability, has been able to withstand the usage, given that it was installed in 2003 and it's still working.""I like the security and also the configuration. It is easy to configure and most of our business use cases have everything just with the configuration itself."

More IBM FileNet Pros »

"We are able to handle more than one hundred POs at any given time with their shipping docs and info, with only one person in charge."

More Jive Pros »

"However, the configuration does take a long time. Every company needs its own configuration design. It depends on how many applications are connecting to FileNet. It can take a long time, depending on the application count.""There is some confusion with FileNet workflow. It's not really going into the next level. They are probably replacing it with BPM's workflow. So there's an issue of clarity, the vision for going forward.""I would like to see it able to capture NLP in an advanced search. It would also be good if it could capture images and segregate them in categories within a span of seconds.""Our client feels FileNet does not provide them with content searchability. They feel it's cumbersome. They're only using Metadata. If the Metadata is not well-populated, it becomes a problem to retrieve a document.""Developers like us have an upgraded interface. That interface does not work in the process that we have today. It hangs and is not user-friendly."

More IBM FileNet Cons »

"The search engine could be improved and also provide some kind of indexing."

More Jive Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing costs depend on the size of the storage.""FileNet is quite expensive, although Documentum is expensive too."
