Eliminates document chaos
Avoid versioning issues and stay compliant with features like check-out and check-in, old version preservation, change logs and automatic version naming and numbering options.
Enables collaboration and automated workflow
Create assignments for ad hoc collaboration or design advanced workflows for automating important businesses processes. M-Files facilitates collaboration with teams made up of both internal employees and external partners with features such as check-out/check-in, co-authoring for simultaneous editing by multiple team members, and publishing and intelligent data replication to the cloud.
Safe and secure
Control data visibility by hiding sensitive documents while maintaining a single storage location – so everything is there, but only what you want to be seen is seen. You can also configure permission settings to reduce human error, automatically schedule data backups and even integrate with Active Directory.
View, create, edit and store documents anywhere – including in offline mode or on mobile devices – with automatic synchronization. Remote connections are still remarkably fast, and replication also speeds up document handling for facilities in different locations. You can even set up web access to give anyone, anywhere access to M-Files – including Mac and Linux users.
Integrate seamlessly with existing apps
M-Files integrates with all Windows applications, including Office, CAD, accounting and inventory solutions. Access data vaults with standard file commands such as Open and Save As. It also supports all file formats, such as standard Microsoft Office documents like Word and Excel, PDF files, CAD models and drawings, images, scans of paper documents and emails and attachments.
Customizable vault and metadata
Our advanced metadata-driven architecture provides an extremely flexible environment that enables you to adapt the system to the specific needs of your business. You choose the document and information types you need to manage, and the properties - or metadata - you want to track. Literally any object type can be created and managed, not just documents, for instance, projects, customers and contacts, and even industry specific objects like cases, audits and deviations. M-Files also supports relationships between documents, multi-file documents, document collections and templates.
Fast search and time saving dynamic views
Find the right documents and information easily and instantly with basic and advanced search capabilities. Search on metadata, "full text" file contents, or both, with productivity boosting features such as dynamic filters and sort functions that ensure you will find the right information when you need it. M-Files does away with chaotic folder structures with metadata-driven Dynamic Views that act like reusable custom "searches" that enable documents and other information to show up in multiple locations without creating confusing duplicates.
Configurable, connectable system
Define an active link with external databases such as CRM, ERP, accounting and billing systems, or import and link files from existing network shares. You can also scan paper documents, import email messages from your mail server or use the M-Files API for special integration needs. M-Files supports literally every Windows application. Simply use the standard Save and Open commands to save to and open from the vault, whether in the cloud or on-premise, the experience is identical.
