low cost scaled down alternative to sharepoint?

Does anyone know of a solution to help a small business of about 10 users index and manage MS office documents. ?

Sharepoint is much too expensive. I've been searching for about 3 hours and have not found anything promising. It doesn't have to be fancy but something that would allow us to put tags like "Review on jan 2013" and "Include in company catalog" would be great

Sharepoint is $6 a month, Chris, hosted in the cloud on an Office 365 package. And it's ready to go, easy to do. You just spent 3 hours looking around. What you get paid per hour, eh?

weeks - Thanks.. I'll look into that.

I do have a rule for myself about not billing clients when I'm futzing around with something that I can use with other clients.

anyway, thanks again.. that is exactly what I needed. Sometimes it pays to stop and ask for directions :))

Ohhhh, for a client, not your money! Woot! Bill'em! Ha.

Good luck with convincing the client to go to a hosted service. Some people are having major problems with that, despite the cost in time and equipment of running the software on their machines. And, the fact that it not as secure. Etc.
