It’s Friday Afternoon!

It’s 4:00pm on Friday afternoon and you are finishing off admin that you just didn’t have time to get to earlier in the week.

The phone rings and it is a client who starts the conversation apologizing… You always know it is bad when they start with the apologies…. They need help and they need it now, please can we urgently send copies of all invoices, contracts and supporting commercial documents we have with them as they are going through an audit and they have lost our file.

Normally this would have been a real drag for a Friday afternoon, but we practice what we preach and all our documents are stored within the M-Files content management solution. While my client is still on the phone, I am able to locate the documents she needs, I highlight them all, right click and say send via email.

Before I put the phone down, she has all the documents she needs to satisfy the auditors and they have survive another audit. Needless to say the client was back on the phone on Monday, asking us to extend their M-Files solution to their debtors department.
