New Demo Video: ZSign – Secure Electronic Signature for Alfresco

zsignJoin Zia’s Eric Harper for a quick demonstration of our new solution, ZSign – Secure Electronic Signature for Alfresco.

ZSign is an add-on for Alfresco, allowing users to electronically sign documents within their repository. It’s the ideal solution for executive, finance, legal, sales, and HR personnel to execute contracts, purchase orders, expense reports, work orders, timesheets, addendums, and much more.

Whether you are in the private or public sector, ZSign allows organizations to recognize the full benefits of going paperless by eliminating the need to print out, route, wet-sign and rescan documents. Additionally, ZSign can be used with Alfresco’s workflow to allow document signing to be integrated within the approval processes to streamline execution of these documents.


Chem100 – Wrapper for Apache Chemistry

The lingua franca for external applications to talk to Enterprise Content Management Systems is the CMIS API.  The CMIS API implementation from Apache supports many languages including Java, PHP, Python, Objective-C and .Net.  However, it doesn’t support Clojure, a fairly new implementation of Lisp.  What Zia Consulting has done is to take the Java API and “wrapper” it in Clojure.  This allows native Clojure applications work directly with Enterprise Content Management Systems.  It is has been released as an Open Source API and is available at

It is called Chem100 as it is a wrapper for the Apache Chemistry Project and it supports CMIS 1.00.  It is in an Alpha release state (0.1.0-SNAPSHOT”).  However it is under active development.  Pull requests are welcome.
