As companies struggle to manage rapidly growing volumes of documents and data, many are seeking help from enterprise content management (ECM) systems powered by artificial intelligence (AI). Intelligent ECM systems offer tools to automate many of the time-consuming and repetitive document-driven processes within a business.
For instance, AI-enabled ECM tools can automatically search for documents in a multitude of siloed systems, analyze the files for information about their contents, and assign metadata that provides context and makes the document easier to find.
M-Files provides an AI-powered enterprise content management solution that helps employees find and use information more effectively. By providing a single view of content throughout the organization, M-Files makes it easier to find, access and share the right documents at the right time to improve decision-making and enhance business performance.
ECM that truly connects your business
Connect all your enterprise content and support your business workflows with M-Files.
Artificial intelligence can improve any enterprise content management solution by performing several critical tasks that make information more available while reducing human error and automating time-consuming processes.
An enterprise content management solution that uses metadata to store and retrieve files offers a far more efficient approach to organizing documents than the traditional file folder structure. AI-enabled ECM software can automatically read files and extract information that should be included in the metadata for a file. By adding details about everything from invoice numbers and due dates to client names and project data, AI-enabled ECM tools can reduce error-prone manual entry and provide a more consistent way to organize documents so they are easily classified, stored and found.
AI-powered tools can automate processes to move files through a workflow far faster than a human being can.
AI-enabled tools can precisely read information and understand context, extracting data that makes files more visible and valuable to the organization.
With AI, documents can be easily grouped around common fields or topics, helping organizations identify parallels and draw inferences that might not otherwise be seen.
AI tools can scan documents for sensitive data or personally identifiable information (PII) and direct flagged files to a special workflow for handling sensitive documents.
As a leading intelligent mission management platform, M-Files provides an enterprise content management solution that connects all documents and information across every platform and repository to break down silos and provide a single view of content.
M-Files uses an Intelligent Metadata Layer to tag documents with information about what’s in each file. That means workers can use M-Files to search for documents based on what files contain, rather than where they’re located. Instead of requiring a time-consuming and costly data migration, M-Files creates connections to documents wherever they exist: in network folders, on SharePoint, in CRM or ERP systems or in any other business system, application or repository.
M-Files’ AI-enabled enterprise content management tools automatically search for documents and assign metadata that makes it easier to know what’s in a file. As a result, organizations have far greater access to data that was previously unknown, uncategorized or inaccessible.
Additionally, M-Files provides an easier way for workers to access and share documents, eliminating the risky use of personal devices and file-sharing apps to collaborate with colleagues. And M-Files enables employees to access files from any location, at any time, on any device, empowering a mobile workforce to stay productive and efficient.

An enterprise content management solution is a software tool that helps organizations better organize, secure, store and retrieve content.
By making information, documents, and data available more quickly and easily, ECM technology helps to improve productivity and extract more value from information assets. An enterprise content management solution can also add another level of security for sensitive documents. And ECM tools can automate many routine yet business-critical processes to ensure that document workflows are executed consistently, accurately and on time.
While an enterprise content management solution focuses on a wide variety of content – including documents, video and audio files, websites, social media content, presentations and email – a document management system (DMS) focuses more specifically on traditional documents such as contracts and financial reports.
