Our Mission = Your Competitive Edge

M-⁠Files gives businesses a competitive edge by making document-⁠centric processes more productive, predictable, and secure.

Doing business with M-⁠Files

  • M-⁠Files was founded by current CEO Antti Nivala as a solution to a market problem his father had uncovered with information management for his architectural engineering firm.
  • Over the years, M-⁠Files has continued to remain independent. As a result, we have never been forced to integrate with a larger, multi-⁠product organization. Instead, we have grown through steady organic growth, breaking into new verticals and expanding its footprint into North America.
  • M-⁠Files has remained focused and is the only true pure-⁠play platform in the market, delivering innovative capabilities and common use cases across multiple industries.
  • As M-⁠Files continues to evolve, we remain true to our Finnish heritage of core values rooted in equality, trust and honesty. Our Guiding Principles of “Make IT Happen, Help others, and Love customers” drive how we work and interact with others internally and extend externally to customer and partners.

The M-⁠Files platform empowers our customers to take control of their business

  • With M-⁠Files, managing information becomes frictionless regardless of dependencies, systems, repositories, applications or the number of collaborators.
  • Knowledge workers can finally access “silent knowledge.” With our platform, storing, searching and sharing knowledge becomes a natural part of everyone’s workday.
  • Knowledge workers can work in context which means they can model their own world with new searches, new views, new workflows or they can follow workflows set by others.
  • With our platform, the number of use cases is limitless. If your business can envision it, you can build the workflow and automate processes.
