We have around 50 users. For docs as mentioned in the title we have shared folders on a server with rights granted to multiple users. Is there a better way to do this?

I am a lone user, but I believe that Microsoft Sharepoint, as the name implies, is built for the purpose.

I've been testing a product called InfoPreserve:
http://www.infopreserve.com/

So far it is performing very well and it does exactly what you need. I can't give it a ringing endorsement since I haven't deployed it in production, but I like it so far and I recommend that you put it on your short list...I think it's worth a look.

Also, we had a thread a while ago where some experts recommended the open source Alfresco:
http://www.alfresco.com/

I've personally used it only in a sandbox, but experts in that thread spoke highly of it. From the website you can see that there's an active support community for it. Don't know if it will work for you but it's also worth a look. And since Graham recommended MS SharePoint, here's an EE thread from a few years ago that may be helpful in looking at Alfresco vs. SharePoint (of course, things have changed in both products since then):
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_25458146.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+alfresco

Note that some of the data in that thread is even older, such as the accepted solution of:
http://www.cmswire.com/cms/enterprise-cms/sharepoint-vs-alfresco-a-platform-perspective-004549.php

So you'll want to look for updated info.

Regards, Joe
