In business, if you were to ask a group of executives to name their top five investments which have a measurable positive return on investment (ROI), you would probably see many of the same, usual suspects on their lists: ad programs, salespeople, fulfillment systems, marketing infrastructure, lead generation programs, to cite a few.

Even now, lots of businesses first design their website to work on laptops and desktops. Afterwards, they will also make sure those same sites function well enough on phones and tablets, almost like an afterthought. Surprisingly, that's what most people mean when they discuss responsive website design. In an era when even Google has advocated for mobile-first development, such a cart-before-the-horse approach doesn't signal digital transformation leadership.

One of the biggest problems that most organizations deal with these days has less to do with the sheer volume of data they're working with on a daily basis and is more about just how much of it is unstructured. Unstructured data, as the term suggests, is that information that either doesn't have some type of pre-defined model, or that isn't organized in any pre-determined way.

M-Files is a passionate, dynamic company providing intelligent information management solutions that are disrupting the ECM market. We are a company grown out of one simple vision: that efficiently managing information is a widespread business problem—and that solving this common problem is vital to any business.

M-Files intelligent information management solutions are disrupting the ECM market, recently renamed Content Services Platforms by Gartner, with a fundamentally new and unique approach that eliminates information silos by providing quick and easy access to the right data and content from any business system and device.

Based on three fundamental concepts:

  • Metadata: M-Files turns the tables on traditional approaches by intuitively managing information by "what" it is versus "where" it's stored. No more guessing where to store a document, just tag it and relate it to other important business objects, such as customer, project, case, and so on, and it shows up dynamically, wherever it's needed, with automatic permissions and workflow.
  • System-neutral: Rather than requiring that information be stored in a single, monolithic repository, the M‑Files open architecture supports connectors to other systems and repositories, including network files shares, email, file sharing services, CRM, ERP, legacy ECM systems and more. Information can be accessed and managed in place without disturbing other systems and processes.
  • Intelligent: M-Files leverages state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) to automate, simplify and assist the user with how they interact with information, particularly how metadata is generated and applied so that information is correctly and intuitively classified and organized.

Ensure the efficiency and productivity of your team, no matter where they are.
