Intuitive Document Management Software
Allied Images - the UK's premier M-Files reseller
M-Files® is an intuitive electronic document management system (EDMS) that solves the problems of managing, finding, and tracking documents in today's information-intensive organizations.
To remain competitive in today's business environment, companies must continually strive to eliminate redundancy in their electronic records while also improving accessibility and management of sensitive company information. The process of constantly creating and revising different file types associated with different software applications can leave a company's electronic files in chaos. Take control of the electronic clutter with the best value in electronic document management software on the market today. M-Files' host of innovative features allows streamlining of document management processes and provides a powerful and easy to use solution to document and information disarray.
Windows Integration: M-Files document management software is seamlessly integrated with Windows Explorer, providing a user interface that is instantly familiar to everyone and easy to learn and use. M-Files also supports all Windows applications; this means that any application, including Office apps like Word or Excel, CAD, accounting, billing and inventory solutions, etc., can directly access M-Files data vaults with standard file commands such as Open, Save, Save as, etc.. One of the challenges of most document management systems is that they require users to change the way they work, creating the need for extensive training and constant enforcement. With M-Files, users just keep working the way they always have, using the standard Windows commands they already know and use every day, requiring little, if any, training.
Reliability & Performance: M-Files is the only document management solution to offer a "virtual-local" drive that provides a single location from and to which all files are accessed and stored. The M-Files virtual-local drive bridges the gap between centralized data storage and local compute resources, enabling users to work with all the performance and reliability provided by their local computer and hard drive, while a unique caching mechanism transparently synchronizes with the central data vault. Unlike other systems that use mapped network drives to store data, M-Files always delivers fast "local" performance and reliability, even when the network or server is slow or unavailable due to a crash, periods of high loads or network traffic, or when travelling or working from home. As soon as the connection is re-established, M-Files automatically synchronizes with the server.
Flexibility: Add customizable document properties known as "metadata" to your files to organize and streamline your file management system according to your specific requirements. Browse files by class, project, or any properties you choose.
Fast Search: Research indicates that office workers spend up to 16% of their time searching for files. M-Files document management software delivers a powerful search capability that enables you to instantly locate files by typing in simple keywords rather than searching through chaotic network folders. You can search on metadata, file contents or both.
Revision Control: M-Files automatically preserves and tracks all previous versions, or history, of your documents, a key criteria for traceability and quality standards. In addition to providing simple and direct access to any previous version of a document, M-Files records a change log with usernames, timestamps, and comments.
