  • Revision history of all the files

Alfresco is an open source document management system.

It is rather similar to Sharepoint.

Alfresco is easier to use by office workers than Subversion, especially because it does not have branches (Sharepoint also does not have branches).

  • ♦ Thanks for the wonderful suggestion. Alfresco is perfect for my requirements. Couldn't get proper support for India location. Do you have any leads? Jun 25, 2019 at 9:45
  • Do you mean professional support? There are a dozen support partners in India alone: alfresco.com/partners

I have used Subversion in industry for many years for version control of documents. There may be something better, but SVN is free and it lets us keep the documents with the code. Go for it.
