Information is vital to every level of business operation today, and companies that use information most effectively can expect a competitive edge. But in most organizations, essential data and documents are distributed across many disparate and disconnected business systems and data repositories. The result of this chaos is twofold: workers waste far too much time searching for the right information, and companies often fail to effectively use data to move the business forward.
A superior enterprise document management system like M-Files can help. By connecting data and information across every platform and repository to deliver a single view of documents, M-Files’ document management tools make it easy to see, find and utilize the right information at the right time to drive better business performance.
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.
Businesses need fast access to real-time and historical information to make smarter and faster decisions. But managing data and documents today has become a business-critical challenge.
The sheer amount of data created daily can easily overwhelm an inferior enterprise document management system. Every two days the world creates as much information as was created from the dawn of civilization up until 2003 (Eric Schmidt). And the volume of data produced by businesses is expected to grow exponentially, reaching 163 ZB by 20251.
In addition to dealing with a crushing volume of data, most organizations lack a single system for managing, organizing, storing and securing it. In fact, more than half of organizations today use four or more content management systems (CMS), and yet the majority of their data still remains outside of those CMS tools2. To find the information they need, workers must often search for critical information that may exist within email or network file folders on various business applications, platforms and devices. And because files are hard to find, documents are often duplicated or re-produced at a significant cost to productivity. Without a single view of critical content, organizations face significant compliance and security risks while also lacking the ability to benefit from their data investments.
Clearly, to remain competitive, organizations need an enterprise document management system that eliminates data silos and delivers a single view of information across all systems and repositories. That’s where M-Files can help.
M-Files is a cloud-based intelligent information management platform that easily solves the challenges of managing vast volumes of data and documents. Unlike traditional enterprise document management solutions, M-Files does not require documents to be migrated to a central repository – a costly and time-consuming project. Instead, M-Files breaks down information silos by unifying systems, data and content throughout the organization without altering existing systems or processes. Our AI-powered technology searches for and analyzes each document to place it in context, applying metadata tags that make it easy to find a document by simply searching for what it is or what it contains rather than where it is located. M-Files allows companies to serve up the right information to the right people at the very moment they need it, and to automate information-driven business processes that help to achieve superior productivity and business performance.
M-Files provides a single view of information that makes it easy to find documents, email, customer details, project information and contracts, even if they are saved in different archives or systems.
With M-Files, you can easily see the complete picture of any topic you choose. For example, you may search for all contracts that expire next month, all correspondence with a given customer or all documents for a specific project, even if that information resides in different systems throughout the organization.
Our technology automatically manages the entire document lifecycle, ensuring that documents go through specific workflows, follow appropriate retention policies and are accessed only by those who have the right permissions.
To find information, you need only type what you’re looking for in the M-Files search bar and you can connect with your content with a couple clicks.
M-Files stores just one copy of each document, so what you see is always the latest version.
By providing an easy way to digitize documents, M-Files enables your transition to a paperless document management system that can help to achieve significant cost savings, accelerate document workflows and provide workers with anywhere, anytime access to every document they need.
