What is Alfresco Web-Based HTML5 Client?
This Alfresco Web-Based Client, AKA SkyFinder, is a module that allows different content management systems to work together seamlessly. In tech terms, CMIS protocol or Content Management Interoperability Services means you can access all of your company’s systems from one single location. Even if your Document Management is being handled by Alfresco, you can access data through your main system without having to switch programs.
Whichever application your employees are most comfortable using is designated as the main portal. For example, a financial institution will use the banking computer system. SkyFinder makes it possible for your staff members to do all their work while using Alfresco’s repository without changing the look or feel of their online workspace.
Why is Alfresco Web-Based HTML5 Client so important?
- Uniform functionality – the web-based client makes the Alfresco repository available with the look and feel of the service-oriented system you use every day
- Save time & money – doesn’t require adaptation or training to a new system
- Universal – the module works with any web-based application
- Integrated – no need for multiple logins or separate CMIS software
The Benefits of Alfresco Web-Based HTML5 Client
Skytizens has developed the Web-Based Client addon to help Alfresco work seamlessly for companies who already have a main computer system. Plenty of enterprise-level organizations use a proprietary industry-specific system for most of their work. Alfresco’s dynamic repository and Content Management System (CMS) are now available to these companies without requiring extra training for the staff. All changes, file placements, and other manipulations done in the company’s traditional system will happen in real-time in the CMS as well.
How Does It Work?
SkyFinder uses web protocols to allow users access to various applications from one single location. We embed Alfresco’s dynamic CMS into your company’s traditional system so that you can control files and work with data without the feeling of switching programs.
CMIS or web-based clients like this are designed for the Enterprise Content Management industry to be flexible. This Alfresco web-based client works with systems in place across a variety of global industries. It allows Alfresco to be a chameleon and change its look and feel to fit what your company’s employees are used to.

Remote Document Preview – This module allows users to access document previews for Alfresco-based data in web-browser form. Your company’s familiar system will open and view a variety of specific files that are not typically supported by that system. These Preview Mode versions are available to view in multi-page, zoomed, full-screen, rotated and all basic manipulations. Users can also view content in Preview Mode without opening the file on the local computer.
- Supported Formats: PDF, TXT, HTML, XML, XLS, DOC, PPT, RTF, JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, AutoCAD, and many more.
Unlimited Interoperability – There is no limit to the number of back-end programs that can be linked through SkyFinder.
Multilingual Support – All searches and executed actions within the repository are supported by Alfresco’s multilingual capabilities. Typical languages used for this feature are English, Thai, Japanese, and Chinese (Traditional & Simplified).
Automatic Login/Logout – While switching between applications, users’ and operators’ login information is pulled from the current platform using the Active Directory. Login activity can be toggled between manual and automatic.
Encoded Filepaths – A unique aspect of SkyFinder is the ability to setup encoded, encrypted folder paths for ease of CMS access on the local platform. This means that instead of an employee browsing through the entire repository, Skytizens can setup common filepaths for direct access. The web-based client uses a folder hash with encoded script to allow this access to occur in real-time.
