A good solution for organizing and searching a lot of PDF and Docx files

Last Modified: 2016-02-14
Hello experts
We have a lot of Docx (word documents) and PDF files (Mostly Unicode UTF8).
We need to make a structure to hold, sort and search these files (text and title search). Like a big library database.
We need the solution to have a local and online database which can be synced and used.
I know a little about databases. And I can develop a windows application to use a database (like Access database).

How do you suggest to implement a good structure. We may later develop an android app too. So this so called system should be able to handle different kind of requests. It needs to be able to connect to other services like an online shop.

Thank you in advance
