[This month’s series features excerpts from our conversation with M-Files user Peter Uhlman, president of the Philadelphia-based Percheron Group, a commercial and residential real estate development company.]
Over the course of our recent conversation with Peter Uhlman, it is revealed that even though the Percheron Group’s headquarters runs M-Files document management software on Windows Server and PC workstations, Uhlman himself uses a Mac laptop for personal use.
One of the big advantages of the M-Files document management software is the ability to access a central repository of company documents from any Internet connection just using a standard browser. It also means that any employees who are ‘Mac people’ at home or on the road can still access, edit, and save company documents.
“You can access the M-Files vault from a Mac,” says Uhlman. “You do need a PC set up as a server and install M-Files software on it. But once you have that, you can get to the M-Files vault online through the browser on any computer.”
While M-Files is Windows software that runs only on a Windows-based PC, Mac and Linux users can still get remote access to the PC-based server and document vault through a standard web browser.
