M-Files Corporation, a provider of solutions that dramatically improve how businesses manage documents and other information, today announced the immediate availability of M-Files 2015.1.

The latest product release of the M-Files enterprise information management (EIM) solution increases the company's leadership position in leveraging metadata to address demanding information management requirements and challenges with a variety of important metadata-related enhancements. These include efficient new features for easily configuring the metadata of documents and other objects to include contextual automatic values, intuitive property groupings, helpful tooltips and more. This improves both the efficiency and accuracy of adding and editing metadata, which directly leads to users being able to find the precise content they need faster as well as more effective and consistent business processes. The new release also offers major enhancements for managing and streamlining highly complex workflows, including the ability to easily administer parallel approvals and configure advanced business process logic without scripting or coding.

M-Files is recognized as the leader in metadata-driven information management and pioneered this unique approach . Industry analyst firm Forrester Research recognized M-Files as a Leader in its 2015 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Wave Business Content Services report in which Forrester stated that, “M-Files is unique with its strong metadata-centric approach to ECM.” In addition, Nucleus Research for the second consecutive year positioned M-Files as a Leader in its 2015 Value Matrix for ECM. M-Files was also included by Gartner in the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management.

"M-Files has been a pioneer in leveraging metadata to deliver a more precise, intelligent and ultimately more effective enterprise information management solution since the very first release, and M-Files 2015.1 makes major strides in multiple areas related to how metadata is captured and managed," said Mika Javanainen, senior director of product management at M-Files Corporation. “We’re also focused on listening to our customers, and the enhancements to metadata configurability and the new advanced workflow capabilities are directly driven by real world customer needs. It’s really exciting to see our unique approach gaining traction in the market as businesses realize how much better it can really be versus the old way of organizing information in folders. The result is that M-Files simply works better: users find precisely what they need faster and business processes are dramatically improved.”
