OpenDocMan is a free, open source web-based PHP document management system (DMS) designed to comply with ISO 17025 and OIE standard for document management. Document management software and document management in general is based around a concept of centralized document storage, limiting access, and change tracking. These three DMS software fundamentals make up much of ISO 17025 in regards to document management systems.
OpenDocMan features web based access, fine grained control of access to files, and automated install and upgrades. Unlike most DMS's that require you to change your business rules in order to manage your documents, OpenDocMan allows you to integrate your current rules. Through supporting multiple file types, to departmental review, OpenDocMan lets you concentrate on the business at hand, document management. IT staff and managers can delegate document management duties to any number of staff members, through user and group permissions. Permissions can be set as restrictively or permissively as needed.
