Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
M-Files Corporation, the developer of M-Files cloud, on-premise and hybrid dynamic content management solutions that simplify ECM by managing information by what it is versus where it's stored, today announced the availability of M-Files 10.0 mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone devices. M-Files mobile apps, which can be downloaded for free on the Apple App Store, Google Play and Windows Store, feature an optimized mobile user experience and offer easier and more instinctive navigation and improved task management functionality.
M-Files is the only enterprise content management (ECM) solution built from the ground up with metadata in mind, and the new mobile apps provide an experience that is user-friendly without trading off professional ECM capabilities, such as document control, workflow and compliance support. M-Files simplifies ECM by managing information by what it is versus where it's stored, providing mobile users with greater precision and control when retrieving and managing important company documents on the go, such as contracts, SOP's, project documentation, sales and marketing materials, and other vital information, whether it resides on premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid cloud environment.
M-Files 10.0 also extends support for electronic signing to mobile users. With this feature, organizations can implement mobile-friendly workflow and approval processes that comply with regulatory requirements, such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11. For example, administrators can configure workflows that specify that agreements can only be approved with electronic signatures.
The recently published report by Forrester Research, The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Content Management, Q3 2013, highlights how "mobile first" has become the ECM user expectation: "The work-anywhere future is a world in which work is something you do, not a place you go. End users are demanding new systems of engagement that focus on the context in which they work and not the processes that drive the business function. Systems of engagement are made possible by the extension of functionality from the desktop to the mobile device, thus allowing a continual work environment. End users seek content transparency from any device."
"Mobile is a huge trend driving the ECM market, and we've responded by optimizing M-Files 10.0 to provide rich ECM capabilities to mobile workforces directly from their smartphone or tablet," said Mika Javanainen, senior director of product management at M-Files Corporation. "We optimized the M-Files mobile experience to focus on our customers' most relevant and common use cases, such as document retrieval and workflow approval. We've also focused on mobile capabilities important to highly-regulated industries, such as pharmaceutical and life sciences, where fulfilling FDA compliance requirements is still a necessity even when you're out of the office. For example, M-Files customers can securely sign documents electronically via their mobile devices to eliminate workflow bottlenecks, which improves business process efficiency and ensures compliance, anytime, anywhere."
