The Ideal Document Management Tool We cannot regret implementing M-files. It is a worthy tool when it comes to digitizing document management. What I like most about M-Files is that implementation is very easy. Also need no have any kind of training to understand how the software works. M-Files works well with outlook , windows explorer and Microsoft office. The workflow feature is easy to customize, setup. M-Files will change the way you deal with your documents as it will make it easy to digitize and manage your documents. M-Files is also very secure and offers varying levels of security to monitor what employees can share. The UI is also great.

Help you to organize your documents better. As an office staff, we often have some problems when looking for files on our computer. M-files is a great tool to help us in organizing our files no matter where it is. It saves our time and money. We can view the content by customers, and also find any documents related to that project. We don't need to remember where the file is. They have a trial version for FREE so you can try to use it.

Keeping up with all the files is now easy. This software is great! I've been using it for some time now and have had only positive impressions. Loving the version control the most. This is a life saver especially for my line of work where I am having tens of emails daily containing file which are going back and forth for updates and whatnot.

Great Product. I support M-Files for a customer and have found it to be very easy to work with (from an IT-perspective). My customer absolutely loves it. I have to admit, it's a slick product and the idea of having 1 place that indexes all of the content you can throw at it, whether you're in the office or mobile, is amazing.

Best software for managing your electronic documents online. By sharing required documents with each other and with US staff helps us to making benefits. We can manage and control of our documents online by this software. Very user friendly and ease of use. We can share our documents with other employees in our company. We can also set permissions that who can view and change to our documents. So it is very secure. It has a feature of back up and restoring of files to avoid data loss. We can also save our scanned documents and photographs in M-Files. We can also connect to different databases to get the required data.

I use M Files daily at work and it assists me very well its very easy to use, you can attach the documents to emails quickly and its easy to find whatever you need. I love how you can look up information using any key word you plan to find in a document. Whether a name or account number or anything of that nature. Everything uploads pretty quickly and you can click and slide what you need right into an email.

M-Files gives me means of organizing documents for fast retrieval with parameters of a certain file. The main feature that I like most about this system is the workflow creation where you can convert your business process into a paper-less and effortless process. Proposals, approvals, routing memos, etc. can be done via the computer no need for physical papers and appearances to the concerned people.

50-year-old Archives... digitized! M-Files is our repository of choice for all our digital assets. The M-Files server is secure, robust, and easy to manage. Files may be accessed via the main software, via an app, or even via a web browser. Plus, digital workflows have changed the way we work on documents, making it more streamlined, and efficient. We are confident that our archives and new files are safe from theft, loss, and unauthorized access. M-files works seamlessly with Microsoft products (Windows Explorer, MS Office) which makes it easy to incorporate into our daily workflow. Our filing cabinet with 50 years worth of archives/documents have been digitally scanned recently, and M-files is our DMS of choice because of ease of use, integration with MS Office, secure vault features, OCR and powerful metadata tagging. Workflow design and implementation are easy since it is done via an intuitive graphical interface.

Go-to application for any Digitization Project! M-files is a must for any company seeking to implement digital transformation initiatives in their company.

I love best is its extensive feature set and seamless integration with Microsoft products (e.g., office, IIS server, MS SQL, Windows, etc.)

The workflow feature is easy to customize, setup, and implement. It will change the way you deal with paper documents once you experience how easy it is to digitize, and manage your documents.

The OCR functionality is a beast! Just like having Google on your local repository, reading through the very contents of your digital documents.

Wish we had M-files sooner!
I've been working with M-files for 2 years now and I can't imagine my professional life without it. I am the Records Administrator for my organization and therefore my concern lies in retaining record history and valuable documents. Of course this is facilitated through comprehensive database searches. I have appreciated the ease of use in the M-files interface and the various features that we now have for documents that simply were not present in traditional folder structures. I've trained close to 100 colleagues on this software with great success. M-files does an exceptional job of allowing everyone to work in a way that is natural and comfortable to them, while simultaneously allowing everyone to collaborate, work together, and find each other's documents.

It's easy to use so staff acceptance is universal. It saves time by providing access to information that was previously unattainable. It reduces errors and saves money. M-Files can do anything for a company because of the way it uses metadata, workflow and objects. It is a Swiss army knife of software that relies on configuration not coding. It integrates with MS Office & Outlook and talks to other software to share information which reduces data entry. The mobile apps are amazing, you can take a photo of something on your phone, upload it straight to M-Files and have Workflow kick off immediately. M-Files is simple to use and powerful for organisations of any size.

Pros: - User-friendly for end-user
- Blows SharePoint out of the water
- Highly customizable on the back-end (custom workflows, external database connections)

M-Files is really a great Document Management System with many features, yet easy to use for the end-user. It has advances features like data synchronization between locations, as well as connecting to external databases and support for Dynamics 365. The workflow builder allows a lot of flexibility as well.

Pros:
-Ease of use
-Ease of Install
-Availability of data and documents

Cons:
Search for trailing substring characters.
ie if I'm looking for a serial number that ends or contains 1234 there isn't a search option.

Overall: Searching for documents or hand written notes. Documents prepared by others and missing emails sent by staff. All a thing of the past. Its all in M-Files, found in a third of a second, and available on tablet, phone and desktop.
We use nothing else for any document we prepare. Hand written notes from meetings are scanned in on the photocopier and sent straight to M-Files.
When you need them again, search on the company and, bang, fresh as a daisy.
My guys need standards documents in the field, lookup on the phone and they have it. No calls back to the office taking up the time of 2 or 3 staff members reading things out.
They can also edit and add photos as they go.
Could not recommend M-Files more highly.
Old file systems and window search is dead, bid

It has really helped our business stream our document management, saving lots of time! Save time with document retrieval and looking for files. Tracking document changes. Taking photos on phone and document scanning is great. M-Files is really easy to use as it integrates directly with Microsoft windows. Tracking document changes are great. Searching for files is very fast, even in the cloud. Once properly setup it is really great, We used an Australian company, they know pretty much everything about it! It is cheaper now.

M-Files is a powerful document management system with a great user interface. Huge time savings, improved project management. User interface - it's familiar yet flexible, and very powerful. It's obvious that a lot of time was spent developing it. Connectivity - the ability to pull indexing data from other databases is an incredible time saver and keeps records accurate. Power - the way metadata can be parsed, re-used, and filtered is a huge benefit for naming conventions and searching and sorting files.

Been good so far. Provides organization of documents, prevents documents from loss of misplacement, provides the ability for multiple access points by a number of people, thus minimizing the number of people who come to our office looking for documents. The search engines mimic most standard search engines, making for ease for training. Have the ability to set up views which is great for people who have a set of documents that they need to see often, thus making it so that you can go into the view rather that setting up new searched every time.

Good Document Management Solution for most businesses Learned what we did and did not want in a Document/Content Management Solution. We are currently shopping around for a better option. User Interface is the same no matter the platform. The database residing in the cloud and off local servers is a huge plus, especially for off-site workers. But the structure and speed of the M-Files server is fantastic. Fully customizable to however you want to track your documents and tag your metadata. Tasks and Assignments were a huge plus. Plug-ins for Microsoft Office products all worked very well. Versioning of the documents was awesome. Working on documents locally and then saving incremental changes back to the server dramatically increased speed of working documents for us. (CAD drawings in particular)

Good software, not easy to learn. M-Files has many capabilities that are outstanding. It seems to be a very in-depth program and can be as complex as you would like it to be. As far as getting everything figured out, it does not seem like the most user friendly program to learn. After using it now for about 4 months, I feel as if I have just hit the "tip of the iceberg" for usage and don't really know how to progress even after going through training and looking up multiple videos online to get my questions answered. Some of this could be user error but this is not something I have frequently encountered in the past with other programs. Overall I am neither highly satisfied nor unsatisfied with this product. Time will tell though. I like the capabilities.

Out of the box experience. Mfiles comes with features out of the box that get you started but the real value comes once you start modeling your business processes utilizing the functionality of the core software. I have been very successful at modeling our business processes using the software. I am always amazed with what I can do with it. You can do a lot by simply configuring the software and even more if you want to write a little code. I am very happy with the software and would recommend it to others. Don't expect it to be tailored to your business out of the box though. To leverage it you have to get into the Administration functions and then you can roll out the solutions to your users. The fact that I can define a solution with the software that fits our business.

Next Generation Business Management. This product is a game-changer. Not only is your data retained better, it is retrieved quicker, work time is reduced exponentially, security is granular and well-protected, and analysis possibilities are endless! It is totally beyond me why anyone would use anything else to operate their business. SharePoint is nice for website management, but it costs you way too much as a tool to manage your business. Drop it now like a hot potato and get M-Files. It will save your company a ton of money in the long run. Retrieval of documents, and analysis opportunities.

From the guy in charge of implmentation. Overall, pretty good. There is a ton of cultural and behavioral issues to document management that software cant cure. M-Files would do better if it helped on these issues with an e-book or cultural audit tool before starting. Another idea is to really stress the integration of systems such as ERP customer listings etc. into the system so the naming remains the same. Additionally, a duplicate finder would be a really hand tool. Overall the software is a reasonable price but spotty implementation and not getting culture change will undo the software.

M-files for Engineering. My primary interest in using M-Files is with regard to AutoCAD drawings. I think the final product that will be delivered will be great. However, during our vetting process where we were evaluating a couple of different products, I specified my "must haves", and we were told by the salesman that "M-Files can do that". He probably knew that if it couldnt, it was a deal breaker, so its hard for me to fault him. However, after committing and going through the discovery process, it became apparent that the product had been grossly oversold in terms of its capabilities to deal with AutoCAD drawings and especially Xrefs. My requirements had been clearly stated in the scope of work document. As I said, I think the final product that is to be delivered will be excellent, and to M-Files' credit you are honoring the scope of work committments, but it has taken much longer to get the final product delivered than I ever imagined it would take. Hopefully we will get the final product for testing in a few days. Fingers crossed. Ease of use, appearance (good user interface).

Ajendico Pty Ltd. Took us a while to get the structure right and understand our choices but we had good training from our dealer. Once we got that right and locked out users so they could use the data but not update it and we controlled who could update and made sure they had appropriate training, it grew dramatically and is used heaps in our office I like the fact that we know where everything is in our office

Extremely satisfied. About 3 years ago we realized that we must deal with our file situation. After searching for all this time we finally found the perfect solution. We are in the auto body repair line. Throughout a repair process files must get accessed by several different individuals at once. M-Files works for us because not only does it function as a digital filing solution. We are able to customize it to use for management as well. Very customizable. Easy to navigate and learn. Was able to make it work as management solution as well.

Feature packed product for a low price entry point. We reviewed many software providers before deciding on M-Files and it was a choice based on features, support and value for money. M-Files has become a valuable tool in our organisation. The ability to customise almost everything from the way it looks to the way it functions with workflows has really allowed us to solve a lot of issues we had with storing and retrieving our important documents and information. M-Files comes as a blank canvas, so it is important to look at the sample vault and then work with your channel partner to plan your deployment, but as you start to use it, you realise more and more that it can do. I would recommend this to any business looking to implement a DMS Easy to store information and allocate access to particular user groups. Able to customise look. Workflows are good.

M-Files saves time! There is a strange current normal in global business that 99% of companies accept: Staff either can't find, or it takes a long time to find, the information they need to do their jobs quickly and efficiently. M-Files provides anew normal: Staff can securely access the correct information instantly from anywhere! This is a total paradigm shift for any company and the time and cost savings are incredible! It's easy to use so staff acceptance is universal. It saves time by providing access to information that was previously unattainable. It reduces errors and saves money. M-Files can do anything for a company because of the way it uses metadata, workflow and objects. It is a Swiss army knife of software that relies on configuration not coding. It integrates with MS Office & Outlook and talks to other software to share information which reduces data entry. The mobile apps are amazing, you can take a photo of something on your phone, upload it straight to M-Files and have Workflow kick off immediately. M-Files is simple to use and powerful for organisations of any size.

M-files as a object oriented approach that let you customize the software for any information that you want to manage, i worked with many other DMS and competitor could compete with m-files Very Flexible Easy to configure. Workflow engine well designed. Pricing stucture make affordable for SMB or Entreprise.

Great flexibility to streamline our processes and information management We've recently implemented M-Files. It's very flexible and has made huge improvement to the way we manage our information and processes. It's easy to use but as with every new system it takes some a bit longer to get used to. The user guides are pretty minimal, especially from an administration perspective and there is not a dedicated support team that can help with queries. You are relying on the community of users (who are general very responsive and generous but may not necessarily respond to every query). It is good value for money but for a small charity like ours it's a huge investment but I am glad that we made it. Flexibility, the ability to customise it exactly to your organisation's need.

File storage made easy We only use the file storage facility on M-files. The ability to store a single document in multiple places is our main reason so we only have one copy that can be accessed in multiple ways and different people. Like most modern company's we have people working remotely who need to access the documents and this means no more emailing latest version back and forth between people. We have kept the traditional folders going so the not so computer savvy people are comfy working on the system and it is very easy to get them to put in all the properties so it is also accessible virtually as well.

Satisfied Consultant. I had the luxury to work with many solutions in the last 20 years, by far, M-Files is one of the easiest and most powerful tools that I used in the Information Management field. There is a fantastic blend between the powerful of software and the ease of deployment and use. More to add is the high user adoption and joy when working every day. It's the right platform to build more and more applications for all verticals in the market. My experience was so great with M-Files QMS.

Great Software. Poor Support I love the concept of M-Files. They do tend to overpromise and then fail to support. We were told several things were out of the box. The support staff was extremely painful setting up and then allowing external folks to still have access. With security in mind I have been unable to limit a users security to a class and project as designed. If they improve their communication, training and customer service I believe this software will go far. It is a little expensive. Attaching metadata to documents. Importing objects from external sources. Views are nice but limiting. I have not been able to fully test workflows, but they seem promising.

Flexjet / M-Files. Working with M-files has been very difficult. Their process is very slow. As a company we like to work fast and M-files has 10 steps of evalution versus just fixing the issue. The idea of resolving the issue is sending us articles for us to fix our issues. I really like the overall product but I am concerned when something breaks because it takes forever. The functionality of being able to store and find files is great for the price.

Great on Features ---> Support is lagging. So I found M-files to be very feature rich but when I am trying to do anything complex, I have to go to the community forum because support takes too long to reach me back. Manual for complex stuff is somewhat non existent. M-files are great for CAD file management but it needs better tutorials and/or examples. It seems like it is great deal but the i takes so much time to hunt down the right information through the website/forums. Good deal of features for the money.

A different way of thinking... M-files was certainly a foreign way of thinking about our file management. However, once adopted it has transformed how our company thinks about WHAT is being saved and moved from place to place. It's approachable and it works as an Add-In with other Microsoft products.

Great Document Management System with lacking support. M-Files is really a great Document Management System with many features, yet easy to use for the end-user. It has advances features like data synchronization between locations, as well as connecting to external databases and support for Dynamics 365. The workflow builder allows a lot of flexibility as well. The only downside is the support. Over the years, the US office has deteriorated. In the first years, there were resources in the US office from Finland. Great consultants that assisted us in setting up the original deployment (that was 5 years ago). But in recent years, the US office doesn't seem to know much about the product and they've devolved into a sales office without technical expertise. So if you are buying the software in the US and need something customized, be prepared to figure everything out by yourself. You will not get help in the US timezone. - User-friendly for end-user - Blows SharePoint out of the water - Highly customizable on the back-end (custom workflows, external database connections).

No more hunting! We incorporated workflows and now a simple view will show us where each document is at any moment. We know what is still in engineering, what is awaiting customer review...the transparency has altered how we do business and has saved much time and money. M-Files is a game-changer!

Tremendous value from using M-Files. Solution Management is a software reselling company. We use M-Files to manage documents and as our CRM system managing the full sales cycle with lead generation, opportunity management and communication with customers, contract management, all our projects, internal HR and finance management. Before M-Files we used traditional folders and Dropbox, but we suffered from not being able to find the correct versions of documents and made a lot of double work when making proposals, contracts etc. With M-Files we believe we have increased the value of our company by having all information assembled one place, using standard workflows for all processes including opportunity management, making proposals and contracts using templates and in general just being on top of all information in our company. M-Files gives really good value in terms of accessibility of information, security, functionality. If there is functionality you want different to what M-Files offer, you can in a controlled way develop scripts and applications giving you exactly what you want. We have used M-Files in 5 years, and it has never been unavailable. Top class simply. Functionality, Stability, Price, Support and Ease of use.

A few seconds and you have found exactly what you need. No more paper, no more folders, never again. Very user friendly, available on any platform, all your information is accessible anywhere anytime. Using workflows you can approve invoices etc. even when you are out of office.

Wish we had M-files sooner! I've been working with M-files for 2 years now and I can't imagine my professional life without it. I am the Records Administrator for my organization and therefore my concern lies in retaining record history and valuable documents. Of course this is facilitated through comprehensive database searches. I have appreciated the ease of use in the M-files interface and the various features that we now have for documents that simply were not present in traditional folder structures. I've trained close to 100 colleagues on this software with great success. M-files does an exceptional job of allowing everyone to work in a way that is natural and comfortable to them, while simultaneously allowing everyone to collaborate, work together, and find each other's documents. Ease of searching, customize features, document version ability, and youtube videos.
