Knowledgetree: Analysis of the ECM Solution

Note: KnowledgeTree is not longer a Document Management Solution.

According to Greg Hyer, Marketing Manager at KnowledgeTree they have "pivoted in January of this year and no longer offer document management software."

__________________________

Without a doubt, KnowledgeTree is an interesting option in the world of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software. It’s a solution with a fair amount of personality and whose personality influences everything it touches. For me, one of the key components of this personality is the simplicity and ease that it uses in both its messages and its own platform.

Let’s quickly review the application:


The Pros: 
Its main weapon: one interface, clear, simple and usable. It’s a product that is pretty flexible and which can contribute to collaborative tasks with documents coming from small teams. As a solution, KnowledgeTree should be one of the options to consider when you don’t need complex functionality, or for work teams whose members aren’t technicians.


The Cons: 
For sure, the advantage that has in certain aspects can also be its greatest weakness: sacrificing functionality in favor of ease of simplicity and usability. Another of the things that could be improved about KnowledgeTree is its online preview system, which tends to give users problems after on-line editing with Zoho. Language is another problem: currently, it’s only available in English.

Let’s examine its characteristics in greater detail:
