When using open source document management systems, such as Alfresco and Mayan, most of them uses OpenOffice or LibreOffice to do their transformations to pdf in the background. The transformations that are done by OpenOffice and other non Microsoft solutions tend to get the transformations wrong and as such some information might be lost during transformations.
Mayan EDMS is an open source solution for Document Management that takes into account the challenges within small enterprises. The product is 100% free and delivers a stable platform for future expansion and development. i-Kno chose Mayan EDMS as a future path for product development, as the platform can be deployed on virtually any environment.
