Calling All Design Firms
Hello friends. Yes, it has been a while since I last posted here and valid and lame excuses for not doing so are plentiful. To begin, I am starting a spinoff company from MAYA Design (oh, and I just redesigned and implemented the site so have a look) where I was employed prior to a stint at a startup with friends. In my tenure with the aforementioned startup I worked on a number of exciting projects, all of which are doing well and are seeing increased momentum. One of which I mentioned here before.
But I digress. My reason for this post is not to fill you in on the details of my work life rather, it is to get insight from you about document management systems you use or have used. We at MAYA are looking for a document management solution and in my brief research have found it difficult to find one that doesn’t suffer from horrible interface complex, mega-corporate over featureness, or is great for project management and collaboration (like say, http://www.basecamphq.com) but suffers or is lacking entirely in the document management and versioning dimensions.
For some time we at MAYA have used SVN for document version control but run into the limitations of SVN as a document (meaning files other than code or text files) management solution. I am looking for something that has versioning functionality of SVN along with the project-centeredness and collaboration tools of a tool like Basecamp. Certainly others of you who work in the design domain with files large and small of varying types have looking into document management solutions and I was wondering where you settled and if the solution has served your needs effectively?
More on my current undertaking of the creation of a new company soon. I can tell you however, it is not Web based, or software based for that matter though it could and will involve both. Yay.
