Document management

Improve document management with M-Files

Every day, the average organization generates an enormous amount of data and documents. It’s a huge challenge to simply keep track of this much information, let alone use it to drive business performance.

Without a superior enterprise document management system, the average employee will spend almost a third of their workday searching for the information they need1. And because of information management challenges, more than half of the information stored on enterprise systems is unavailable or unused.

M-Files provides leading document management technology that provides employees with instant access to any document from anywhere. By bringing order to the process of storing, retrieving and managing documents, M-Files helps to improve performance, increase efficiency and enhance collaboration throughout the organization.

Access the information you need instantly

From creation to disposal, see how M-Files provides a smarter way to manage documents, emails, and all your content.

How superior document management transforms workflows

When you work with a great document management system, finding the information you need is simple. Rather than spending 15 minutes searching for the right document and making sure you have the most recent version, you can find and open the correct document in seconds and start working with it immediately. When you multiply those 15 minutes by all the documents that employees work with day after day, the cost-savings and increases in efficiency can be significant.

Superior document management technology does much more than simplify search and retrieval, however. With a leading system like M-Files, you can:

Enhance collaboration with colleagues and partners

A high-quality document management system makes it easy to share files internally and externally, allowing multiple people to make contributions without creating versioning headaches. A superior system simplifies all the steps involved in editing, reviewing and approving documents, making sure the right people get the right version at the right time.

Keep documents secure

With central control and visibility of documents throughout the organization, you can more easily take the steps required to protect them and keep sensitive data out of the hands of cyber criminals.

Ensure and demonstrate compliance

Many industries have strict regulations about how data and documents are used, accessed and stored. With a strong document management solution, you can automate many compliance activities and easily demonstrate regulatory compliance when required.

Document management with M-Files

M-Files’ AI-powered intelligent information management solution makes it easy to deliver the right information to the right people when they need it, while maintaining complete control and ensuring compliance of vast volumes of enterprise documents. Rather than migrating documents to a single repository – a costly and complex task – M-Files connects systems, data and content throughout the organization, breaking down data silos without disturbing existing systems and processes. With digital document management technology from M-Files, you can store and access relevant information anywhere, in any format, at any time, simply by knowing what you’re looking for rather than worrying about where it is located.

Here’s how it works:

Tag the file

When saving a file for the first time, M-Files let you label a document with metadata based on its content. That could include, for example, the name of a customer, a project number, the date of creation or the type of content within the document.

Let M-Files store it

After you provide the essential information, M-Files takes care of storing and protecting it, coordinating versions, ensuring compliance and managing retention. You never need to worry about where the file is located.

Retrieve it

To retrieve it, simply type in the M-Files search bar what you’re looking for and find the right document with just a few clicks.

M-Files enables everything from simple document management use cases to sophisticated, automated workflows that support business-critical processes. Our technology helps you keep track of tasks and processes that automate daily work, and you can easily adhere to legal requirements and company guidelines while letting M-Files handle the audit trail.
