M-Files provides a next generation intelligent information management platform that improves business performance by helping people find and use information more effectively. Unlike traditional enterprise content management (ECM) systems or content services platforms, M-Files unifies systems, data and content across the organization without disturbing existing systems and processes or requiring data migration. M-Files breaks down silos by delivering an in-context experience for accessing and leveraging information that resides in any system and repository, including network folders, SharePoint, file sharing services, ECM systems, CRM, ERP and other business systems and repositories. Thousands of organizations in over 100 countries use M-Files for managing their business information and processes, including NBC Universal, Rovio and SAS.
Other ECM systems replicate the file folder hierarchy for organizing and managing information, which forces users to figure out which folder a document resides in. Furthermore, old-school ECM systems are complex and force users to change the way their work, and as a result, they suffer from low user adoption rates.
By leveraging metadata for organizing information by what it is versus where it’s stored, M-Files enables organizations to simplify the ability to search, retrieve, process and archive documents, which in turn improves productivity, enhances employee collaboration and speeds up the decision making process. M-Files provides a vastly superior alternative to the traditional file folder-based approach by organizing and presenting content in “dynamic views” that are generated from metadata based on the context or need.
