Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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 →

"The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features.""For SharePoint, I believe the most valuable feature is the customization and allowing you to share and edit files and documents. Being able to share externally and the precise administration of the files in terms of giving permissions and controlling who has access to what is a very good feature.""Ability to store files of any type.""The most valuable features are the collaboration and sharing."

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

More M-Files Cons →

"The solution lacks collaboration features.""The workflow engine cannot support the business needs.""It has worked very well for me. It seems like they've improved everything. I don't have any cons about it as such, but I don't think they have a talk-to-text, speech-to-text, or speech-to-type. That would be cool for accessibility.""The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "They have an Optical Character Scanning module but we didn't buy it because it's ridiculously expensive."
  • More M-Files Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is pretty reasonable. It is $5 per month per user. We have 12 users now, so it is about $60 per month."
