With M-Files Cloud Vault, businesses can now incorporate easy document management running on the highly scalable and reliable Windows Azure cloud platform into their existing on-premise Microsoft Dynamics GP systems.

M-Files Inc., the developer of M-Files easy document management software and the cloud-based document management service M-Files Cloud Vault, today announced support for Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft’s popular ERP solution, with M-Files Cloud Vault. M-Files Cloud Vault for Microsoft Dynamics GP will be showcased at the Microsoft 2011 Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) at booth 743 on July 10-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

With M-Files Cloud Vault, businesses can now incorporate easy document management running on the highly scalable and reliable Windows Azure cloud platform into their existing on-premise Microsoft Dynamics GP systems. The resulting “hybrid” model supports a uniquely flexible computing environment that enables businesses to maintain their current ERP deployment approach while utilizing the cloud to improve the way they organize, manage and track important financial and operational documentation and processes.

M-Files Cloud Vault allows literally any type of document, such as purchase orders, invoices, bills of materials, compliance certification documentation, CAD files, etc., to be tagged to the corresponding records in Microsoft Dynamics GP enabling them to be instantly retrieved when needed. In addition to delivering improved efficiency and productivity, M-Files provides the foundation for compliance with industry standards and regulations with a rich set of additional document management capabilities, including secure access permissions, version control, check-in/check-out, automated workflow, scanning of paper documents with optical character recognition (OCR), email support and offline use.

“Documents are a critical component of the financial and operational information and processes that businesses manage with Microsoft Dynamics GP. Yet, since ERP systems are not designed to manage documents, inefficiencies in this critical area significantly limit the effectiveness of the ERP system and its resulting ROI,” said Greg Milliken, president of M-Files Inc. “By ensuring that the correct version of any document related to a record in Microsoft Dynamics GP is instantly available exactly when it is needed, M-Files Cloud Vault maximizes productivity while providing the foundation for achieving and maintaining compliance with important industry standards such as ISO 9000/9001. And with M-Files Cloud Vault, businesses can now quickly deploy via the Windows Azure-based cloud platform without having to purchase, configure and manage a server.”

M-Files is a professional document management system that enables companies and organizations of all sizes in a variety of industries to make dramatic gains in efficiency and productivity by improving the way they organize, manage and track business documents and processes. M-Files eliminates the need for chaotic Windows folders by organizing documents using simple tags and keywords. With M-Files, users store documents in a centralized vault, the same as they would on any other hard drive on their system or network, but rather than repeatedly searching for the right folder, users simply save documents to the vault and tag. M-Files works like Windows Explorer so the user interface is familiar to any Windows user, minimizing changes to the way employees work. The M-Files vault is accessed just like My Documents or My Computer, it's just faster and more secure, and finding files is as simple as typing in a tag or performing a full-text search right from the Open or Save dialog box of any Windows application. M-Files Cloud Vault, in effect, seamlessly connects every application directly to the cloud.
