M-Files & Microsoft Teams enhancement

Detailed Information

M-Files has announced enhancements to its Microsoft Teams solution that will drive new efficiencies and collaboration across organisations.

M-Files now provides AI-powered information management across different Teams channels, Office 365 applications, SharePoint sites and other systems and content repositories – all within the familiar Teams application.

Inside the Microsoft Teams interface, users search for information across disparate systems and archives and collaborate with co-workers on sensitive content. Without an automated solution that supports Microsoft Teams collaboration in managing this enterprise information, businesses are at risk of content silos and duplicated documents, inhibiting productivity and compliance with company governance and industry standards and regulations.

M-Files enables Microsoft Teams users to automate information management with AI-powered metadata, workflows and permissions. Within the Teams user interface, M-Files connects network folders, SharePoint, file sharing services, ECM systems, CRM, ERP and other business systems and repositories all in one view, breaking down content silos across the organisation.

Using artificial intelligence, M-Files automatically tags documents with the correct metadata to ensure proper document categorisation and permissions. M-Files provides access to relevant documents via multiple Teams channels or directly within familiar Office applications such as Word and Excel to ensure users are always working with the correct, latest version of a document.

M-Files also provides specialised solution templates that can be customised for Microsoft Teams to address customers’ compliance and regulatory needs. These solutions offer automatic recordkeeping and archival of materials that are vital to proving compliance and passing an audit. Additionally, M-Files automatically manages access control lists and metadata-based security rules, providing a single sign-on experience to all data via Azure AD authentication. Within Microsoft Teams, users now have access to:

  • M-Files HR to manage employee documents, information, and onboarding/employee lifecycle processes
  • M-Files Contract Management to streamline contract management processes
  • M-Files QMS to manage rigorous quality and compliance documentation, including standard operating procedures, training records, CAPAs, and more
