Sorry but I didn't mentioned that we need open source tools! The DMS
system seems nice but it's not open source.
That's a big problem for us as far as we (probably) need to add some
features (and modify) to the tool we use in order to fully implement
our approach (which is not just applying the transformations)!

Anyway thanks for the answer!
