Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

M-Files

M-Files is well suited for a step-by-step process that involves changes to documents. Such as a document approval process. Specifically in the way that we currently use IT for contracts, which involves revisions and approvals by multiple people, tracking of milestones and important dates, and management of associated insurance requirements.We also have a trip application process that I would love to integrate into M-Files. This would eliminate the need for multiple people to print and sign a document to show their approval. The approval could be granted within the same system and then the application moved to the next step in the approval process. An example of a less appropriate use - M-files would probably be overkill for a simple repository of data/documents that only one person needs to access. Although if I already had M-Files I would probably use it anyway.

  • Allows bulk conversion.

  • The functionality is great once contracts are loaded into the system.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Customer service. We experienced some difficulty with our account this year and the service wasn't the most responsive. We rely on M-Files to run our department and without prompt responses/clear resolutions, it became fairly frustrating.
  • Problem resolution. We were shut out of our account for a month or so this year which really set us back as a company. Not sure why it took so long to resolve, but again, it was a significant hinderance.
  • We have a backlog of contracts that need to be uploaded. Anything that allows the contracts to be input into the system in a quicker, more efficient manner would be helpful

I noticed some lagging with the integration with Microsoft Office but not so much that I would not use it. It has gotten better with updates. to be fair the issues were when Office 2013 first came out.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.
Pamela Harris profile photo
  • Less paperwork (actually not at all). Increased efficiency - specialists doesn't have to spend their time to print out documents and walk accross the offices to collect signatures on the documents.
  • Aceess to information where and when it is necessary. No more time spent to search information.
  • Decision making based on information.
  • Less errors due to wrong document versions used.
