Maarch is an Open Source framework for archiving and retrieving large volumes of static documents. In a certain way, it is designed as an IDARS product (Integrated Document Archiving and Retrieval System), but without the heaviness of the big ECM products. Maarch is ideal for those who are only interested by storing and exploiting image documents, in compliance with Record Management regulations (Sarbanes-Oaxley, ISO-15489). Maarch is compatible with all relational SQL databases, and is mostly written in PHP 5. Utility modules are written in Visual Basic.
