Overall Satisfaction with M‑Files

We use M-files across the whole organization. We manage literally everything with it—quotes, purchases, orders, workflow, tasks, etc. We have also tailored it to work as a laboratory information management system in our laboratory, where we manage the samples, analysis data, and quality control.
  • Document management
  • Workflows
  • Easy access and intuitive to use
  • More features without coding (for example more options for automatic naming of documents, more functions when changing workflow state, etc.).
  • Customizable front page (work example: different kind of page depending the user's task or department).
  • Editing notification settings by admin (not only by user).
  • Work efficiency
  • Easier quality control
  • Better control of workflows
Our organization hasn't yet used these features but they sound useful.
Automatic access control has been useful but we haven't used the other features.
We have ISO 9001 certification and M-files has helped us to meet and maintain the requirements of the standard.
  • Microsoft Office
Microsoft Office integration was easy.
M-files is well suited for its core tasks like document and information management, automating workflows, keeping track of tasks, sharing materials easily and securely, etc. but I would also recommend to customize M-files to fit for any specific needs. M-files is very versatile and you can integrate it with other software.
