And my company,, is working to do that right now. We have
been doing document archiving for years, now we want to make a simplified
document content management system.

I've read some books on this, but I need realworld suggestions.

If this is on topic for this forum, then make suggestions for neat features,
bitch and complain about the system you are using, etc.

I'm listening, and I will share any and all ideas with my developers (I'mthe
overall architect.)

I have 26 employees, 1000 customers, I've been a software designer,
programmer *and inthe early years my own tech writer, sales force, marketing
force, etc.)

I want to deliver a simple, useable, functional product at an affordable
price. Tell me what all thes things mean to you, in your own context.

What problems do you have in

tracking files
keeping prior versions
having working versions and publication versions
preventing cross-editing
verifying documents before publication
public versus private publication areas
