Document management is much more than the ability to find or publish documents: it’s about managing the entire information lifecycle. You never know when you may need to reference or access that second or third iteration, particularly for purposes such as e-discovery or audits. Given the data-intensive nature of document management, augmenting SharePoint with a purpose-built solution to achieve superior overall system performance and protect against risk can make sense for many organizations.
That’s why purpose-built document management solutions like M-Files help maximize investments in SharePoint by adding comprehensive “out-of-the-box” version control and history features that track the entire lifecycle of a document or other information – even if the file format has changed, such as from an originating Word document to a PDF.
In fact, M-Files maintains a comprehensive history of all actions and changes, not only for documents, but also for workflows and processes, and even pure metadata. These features point users in the right direction to quickly find the version of the document they need, guiding them to the most up-to-date information, in addition to previous versions, should they be needed.
In the M-Files white paper, “Empowering SharePoint Users with Purpose-Built Document Management,” we discuss how purpose-built document management solutions such as M-Files can significantly enhance the SharePoint platform by enabling companies to improve efficiency and productivity in their organization via superior information lifecycle management capabilities.
