Overall Satisfaction with M‑Files

M-Files is being used to store content that is related to individual departments, across departments and across business functions. We had issues sharing and finding content, having too many duplicates and restricting permissions to certain content (or too much restriction).
  • Search functionality - M-Files has a robust search system that allows users to quickly find content in seconds
  • Relationships between content - how M-Files relates objects to content makes finding valuable information easy
  • Versatility - MFiles allows users to integrate with current systems and microsoft office to easily integrate into normal business operations.
  • One major frustration we have had has to do with our particular project, not the tool in and of itself. We had a combination of development efforts, some from M-Files and some from our developers in house. It has been hard to push the project forward at times since we are not allowed to control the cloud environment or develop in the cloud environment. We have had to wait on things to get pushed via content packs we develop on prem, which are then shared via a dropbox to M-Files. We hoped there would be a smoother solution for this.
  • We haven't had a chance to experience this; we just rolled out M-Files to our first department.
  • In house applications that pull customer information and transaction information.
Some development was done by M-Files and some in house. There was probably some level of difficulty we experienced because we switched our business analyst during the project so some sense of scope or knowledge transfer was lost. Once we were on the same page, it was not a difficult integration though.
MFiles is well suited for companies with large amounts of content, that have confidential information, that are related to other "objects" and much more.
