Intranet Advice needed

Here is a curve ball perhaps.

My compliance department has seen somewhere or heard from some one that it would be a great idea if our process flow that we need as part of our ISO9001 Quality management is published on an intranet.

The idea is that every process is drawn as a flow chart with clickable links at each stage to open up a list of documents that belong to that process.

This would allow a user to see where they are at each stage of a project and what forms they have to complete as well as help and support guides for this.

The intranet is not part of the workflow itself so does not need to harbour any interactive or dynamic functionality but act as a document repository that is accessible from a browser.

So my question is what software would you suggest for deployment, considering we have at least one server we can dedicate for this and it is an Active Directory environment?

Many thanks
capt.

in order to keep the latest version of quality manual or other required QS files for internal use and internal/external aduit, you may simply publish all the documents on a SharePoint server which can be accessed from any work computer on your network.

the published documents can be converted into HTML format for easy access from any web browser, or in read-only PDF format and saved in a shared folder accessible for internal computers.

in a few words, a basic SharePoint server can do that. a free version of SharePoint server is available for Windows users.

I have 15 servers here, so a standalone would not be an issue.

Could you point to a sharepoint download and maybe some config guide pages?

We have AD so this is a given.

thx for the response so far.
