M-Files Corporation has announced the opening of its UK office in Reading, Berkshire. The new M-Files UK office, along with increased investment in personnel and marketing and helping more UK companies drive growth.
The expansion comes as an increasing number of UK businesses are realising that information management is a strategic priority, and it is driving them to eliminate manual processes and replace existing document management systems that have proven to be complex and difficult to use. Common requirements include the need to transition away from the use of unmanaged network file folders, and getting control of personal and less secure file sync and sharing apps for managing business content.
Companies are turning to enterprise information management solutions such as M-Files to eliminate content chaos and information silos while enabling fast and easy access to the right documents and other information from any core business system and device.
“The IT-savvy UK document management market is growing quickly because organisations of all sizes and across a wide array of industries are looking for easy-to-use and secure alternatives for managing their information assets”, said Julian Cook, Director of UK Business Development at M-Files.
“Legacy document management and ECM systems generally haven’t met expectations for a variety of reasons, but a common one is low user adoption because they are complicated or cumbersome to use, so employees just work around them. M-Files is bringing a new approach to information management that is simple and intuitive without trading off the advanced security, workflow and compliance support companies are demanding”.
