M-Files Overview

What is M-Files?

M-Files DMS is a simple, reliable, affordable document management service that helps your business in a variety of ways. Reuse information to cut down on wasted time and eliminate redundant processes; securely control all of your content and improve your workflows throughout the company; and avoid data loss and conflicting uploads when collaborating. All of this is achieved through software that integrates seamlessly with Windows Explorer. M-Files DMS supports businesses in a huge variety of industries, including energy, real estate, manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, legal services, and education.

The key features of M-Files DMS include a fast search function that can sort through file contents as well as metadata fields. Metadata is also how user permissions are controlled by administrators. An audit trail follows each user, so all content is kept regulatory compliant, including complying to HIPAA, FDA, EU, and other privacy requirements. The version management tools ensure that only the most up-to-date content is presented. The workflow can be setup to send email notifications for user-defined triggers, and the interface connects to other databases commonly used by businesses, such as CRM or ERP systems. The API allows users to create their own custom integrations and personalize their experience while using M-Files DMS.

M-Files DMS is designed to look and feel like a Windows product, integrating into Windows Explorer as though it belonged. There’s no need for special training so long as users are familiar with Microsoft products. M-Files supports every single type of file or application that Windows does, and it gets rid of confusing folder organization altogether. All content is saved in the Vault, and is accessed via the powerful search tool. You can tag files so that a group can be called up all at once, or search by date, customer information, project name, or other user-defined fields.
