Users of any Windows-based CAD application enjoy the same easy version control and search capabilities as any other business application with M-Files. Here’s the same familiar M-Files interface integrated into Google SketchUp. Choosing Save As… just as you would normally in SketchUp brings up all the convenient document management controls of M-Files:
Architectural and product design offices can spend impressive amounts on customization or special modules of CAD packages to manage project data, such as Autodesk’s Vault or Pro/ENGINEER’s Windchill. The simple M-Files solution is much more comprehensive (organizing all business documents), more inexpensive (with a free license for up to 10,000 files: M-Files Express), and contains all the capabilities to prevent loss of edits, misplaced files, and proliferation of multiple versions.
Because M-Files is not based on folders, but rather descriptive properties and keywords related to the document or associated project, it’s fast to save and find files. M-Files is also easy to implement within your current design workflow; you can start organizing your project data effectively as soon as you install the digital filing system.
Take a look at a [great example] of how an architectural design firm can leverage M-Files on design projects in this recent article about BSA LifeStructures.
