M-Files named a “Leader” in the 2019 Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Content Management (ECM).

VM Consulting, an M-Files Gold partner, Distributor and Solution Provider in South Africa is pleased to announce M-Files has been named a “Leader” in the 2019 Nucleus Research Value Matrix for Enterprise Content Management (ECM), for the sixth consecutive year.

2019 nucleusDALLAS – April 10, 2019 – M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced it has been named a “Leader” in the 2019 Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Content Management (ECM). This marks the sixth consecutive year that M-Files has achieved Leader status, as the company continues to distance itself from competitors as the ECM sector front runner with the highest recognition for functionality.

Nucleus Research evaluates Enterprise Content Management (ECM) providers on two core criteria – usability and functionality, as determined by analysis of interviews with end users and ongoing research by the firm. The 2019 report included reviews of 17 vendors and placed them in quadrants based on how Nucleus Research assessed them as Leaders, Experts, Facilitators and Core Providers.

“This year, key forces driving the M-Files Leader designation were strong technology, user-centric functionality and robust usability,” said Barbara Peck, analyst for Nucleus Research. “With its vision of a metadata-driven, repository neutral and AI-powered platform, M-Files offers distinction in the marketplace. New innovations such as M-Files Smart Search, an intelligent cloud service for multi-repository search available later this year, demonstrate a visionary road-map for the company. Nucleus expects that M-Files, with its core strengths of functionality and usability, will continue to set the standards for content management in the near future.”

As a leader, M-Files was acknowledged by Nucleus Research for its user-centric road-map for the future and continued heavy R&D investment for performance improvement, platform development, and vertical solutions. The value matrix also affirmed the uniqueness of the M-Files solution which offers the same licensure for on-premises and cloud deployments, eliminating financial obstacles when transitioning to the cloud.

Furthermore, Nucleus Research recognized M-Files for prioritizing data security, with robust features such as access control and permissions, automated audit trails, federated authentication, data encryption in transit and at rest, intrusion detection and data loss prevention.

“At M-Files, we’ve pioneered a new approach to ECM called Intelligent Information Management and it has clearly cemented our leadership positioning in this sector,” said Greg Milliken, senior vice president of marketing at M-Files. “Driven by metadata, documents are automatically indexed and organized by type to establish relevance and context when searching for information in M-Files or other repositories and business systems. Our Intelligent Metadata Layer that brings all disconnected silos together, along with AI-powered content analysis, which provides ‘content in context,’ deliver new, heightened levels of usability and functionality that offer key differentiation.”

Record number of insurance claims in Durban.

By Vanessa Miller

Vanessa MillerLast week Durban was hit by the worst rain and flooding in over 20 years. The damage to property, households and even vehicles was extensive, with many families still coming to terms with the fact their family homes have been totally demolished and they have to start from scratch.

In all the horror of the past couple of days, one thing stood out for me…The sheer fact that the Durban and South African community came together to help. Neighbours were helping neighbours… Strangers were helping strangers… In all the turmoil, Durban was at peace with itself.

I too was a victim, on a very minor level compared to others. A couple of boundary walls took a wobble, and some flooding in our outside room, saw us have a visit from an Insurance Assessor this weekend. I was expecting a tall well – built man, with muscles to come and inspect my property, and was pleasantly surprised to have a short, friendly lady arrive at our front door… She was absolutely super, chatting as she went, taking the necessary measurements and assessing the damage. She had left her family in Joburg shortly after the Durban floods had hit, and headed down to Durban to help her fellow assessors, who knew that trying to cope with all the assessments was a task beyond their control.

Processing of the claims is now in the hands of the insurance companies, and they have a mammoth task on their hands.

I chatted to one of my Insurance clients Kayser Baird Insurance Brokers this morning, and they mentioned they had processed their largest weekly volume of claims ever last week.

Kayser Baird has been an M-Files user for a number of years and this enables them to manage an unexpected volume of claims with a high degree of control, without compromising on service levels or time allocated to individual claims. Their customers are kept updated with progress on their claims and the claims handling staff are able to stay in touch with individual claims despite the high volumes, because of the advanced workflow and diary system delivered by the M-Files solution.

The team from VM Consulting implemented the M-files solution with Kayser Baird over 4 years ago. M-Files has become fully entrenched in their business, managing every aspect of the insurance life cycle from quoting new clients to processing claims and everything in between. M-Files enables Kayser Baird to operate in an almost paperless environments, as well as manage processes and workflows for dozens of business and client processes. M-Files has enabled Kayser Baird to increase its competitive edge in a highly competitive industry.

To all my fellow Durbanites, the rain may have hit us hard, but our spirit is strong.

M-Files 2015.2 Eliminates Sync when Sharing Files; Universal App for Windows 10 Unveiled

DALLAS, TX, April 12, 2016: M-Files Corporation, a provider of solutions that leverage a unique new metadata-based approach to dramatically improve how businesses manage documents and other information, today announced the immediate availability of M-Files 2015.2.

M-Files 2015.2 includes new features for bolstering collaboration, such as the ability for licensed users to share files from M-Files to external colleagues via secure hyperlinks.

In addition, M-Files 2015.2 also enables users of Android and iOS devices users to edit objects in offline mode, as well as easily configure metadata tooltips, descriptions, default values and property groups.

“Today’s information workers need the ability to easily and securely collaborate and share files with colleagues inside and outside of their company, and the enhancements unveiled in M-Files 2015.2 enable them to do so while also ensuring organizations can retain strict control over their information assets,” said Mika Javanainen, senior director of product management at M-Files Corporation. “M-Files 2015.2 incorporates the most compelling collaboration benefits of popular Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) applications like Box and Dropbox, but without the need to create an additional information silo and synchronize, which is required by these tools. By providing file sharing capabilities directly from the system of record, the risk of duplicate versions being saved in multiple locations is eliminated.”
