Pros
"Using M-Files means anybody on the executive team to go in and immediately look at a dashboard and know the status of a contract."

More M-Files Pros →

"It is well integrated with other Microsoft products.""It's pretty easy to learn. Once someone taught me, I was able to navigate it quite easily.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is that Microsoft OneDrive works with any Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office app. You can edit a document on the cloud, share documents with your colleagues, and monitor changes. You can access your work almost anywhere. You can also sync Microsoft OneDrive with your workstation so that whatever you are working on gets automatically backed up to the cloud at regular intervals. So even if your system crashes, you still have a copy of your documents in the cloud, which I found very useful.""It is good as a central hub for the storage of documents and sharing among team members.""With this solution, the sharing of documents if very easy to do. There's a lot of collaboration you can do with your colleagues.""The stability of Microsoft OneDrive is very good, it is reliable. There were multiple instances where I had lost my valuable data on hard drives in several other places. However, with Microsoft OneDrive, I've never lost a single file.""One of the good features is that the users are not even aware that they're using it.""It's quite easy to use and then of course it is quite well integrated to the rest of Office 365."

Cons
"The integration with other products needs to be improved."

More M-Files Cons →

"The online application is quite limited, for this and other Office offerings.""The solution has sub-folders, which are visible to various team members. If you want to ensure the information is private, you would need to have a certain level of seniority in the office.""The user interface could be a little more intuitive.""The initial setup is a bit clunky.""The security is not as flexible as it is with Dropbox, which means that we can't share our OneDrive files.""The file structure insight could be made more flexible like for creating more flexible folders.""The user interface sometimes fails and when it cannot connect, it does not give the reason why.""Technical support is not very impressive and is typical of large company software support."
