  • MFiles Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe use M-Files both for testing and development as a re-seller and also for in house purposes.

    Pros : Search. Much like Google, M-Files has a simple yet robust search function.Workflow. Comes standard with the product.Templates. Configure standardized documents to auto populate with customer specific information.

    Cons : M-Files mobile app. Lacks the ability to create documents or assignments. Very limited.

  • M-Files DMS is the best document management software because it fits perfectly with the programs you already use. However, this document control software is different from Windows Folders in that it tracks the identity of a file rather than its address. The software integrates with your whole system and gives you full workflow controls. To ensure that you know how to use the software, M-Files offers training materials and excellent customer support.

  • M-Files is ideal for small to medium-sized businesses offering professional services, such as legal and accounting firms, and those in industries such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, banking and finance, manufacturing, engineering, and architecture.

    It's very easy to save documents in M-Files and even more easy to search information. M-Files centralizes documents in a single database, having full access to document versions and a powerful tool for searching information. Also, the application is highly configurable which makes it easy to set workflows, security access, metadata structure or document types.

    They also use dynamic folders (virtual folders called views) that make all the difference in searching documents by organizing documents based on what they are instead of where they are stored. So you can view documents and other items exactly how you need them. Plus, the standard package includes all features, so there is no need to purchase additional modules for tasks, workflows, saving emails from outlook, etc.

    Pros :

    • I would start with the fact that it’s easy to use. It’s integrated with Windows and Microsoft Office, so for a regular user M-Files, it’s just another drive where they can save documents. It’s one of the reasons for which it has a great adoption rate among non-technical persons (such as myself).
    • Also, being a metadata-driven document management, all documents saved to M-Files have a list of metadata (properties) attached. Based on these metadata everything becomes easy: searching documents, using virtual directories to view documents very fast, metadata based security, workflows.
    • Moreover, the search can be made using simple options (such as favorite documents, recently accessed, modified last month) or virtual directories that are based on the idea is that you can find a document based on what it is, not where it is. Comparing to other similar solutions, this approach makes search so much easier because information can be accessed.
    • M-Files also allows saving the emails, being integrated into Outlook. I can also store in M-Files the entities connected to my documents (clients, suppliers, employees, projects) with all their details. It also uses other great features such as templates, follow documents, workflows, tasks.

    Cons :

    • I don’t have cons..
