M-Files 9.0 Flexible Enterprise Content Management Features Full Compatibility with Microsoft Office 2013 and Windows 8
Users of Leading ECM Solution Can Manage and Collaborate on Office 2013 Documents in the Cloud and via Mobile Devices
Dallas, TX -M-Files Inc., the developer of M-Files flexible cloud and on-premise enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, recently announced that M-Files 9.0 is fully-compatible with Windows 8®, Microsoft's newest edition of its operating system for PCs, and Office 2013® (also referred to as Office 15), the latest version of Microsoft's industry-leading suite of office productivity software programs for the Windows operating system.
Windows 8 is scheduled for availability in late 2012, and users will be able to access M-Files through new Windows Phone devices, tablets, and PCs based on this latest edition of Microsoft's operating system. With Windows 8 and M-Files Mobile Access, Windows Phone users can access documents stored in centralized repositories as well as participate in automated business processes and workflows directly from mobile devices.
Office 2013 features a revised user interface and enhancements to all Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote). M-Files 9.0 is fully-integrated with Office 2013 and can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid configurations that enable organizations to leverage the cloud while augmenting their current on-premise systems. M-Files also employs a unique caching mechanism that provides enhanced performance and reliability, as well as making it possible to access documents and information offline when no network or Internet connection is available. This offline capability is especially powerful in cloud or hybrid cloud environments where no Internet access typically means no access to critical content. However, now with M-Files 9.0 users can quickly and easily access, share and collaborate on their Office 2013 content with no difference in speed or performance, regardless of their deployment model -- and even with no Internet or network access.
M-Files 9.0 also supports Windows Live SkyDrive, enabling users to review and edit Office 2013 documents simultaneously with others using the new "co-authoring" features of SkyDrive.
"Supporting the latest versions of Microsoft Windows and Office is a key part of our strategy to drive customer satisfaction by providing maximum flexibility," said Greg Milliken, president of M-Files Inc. "Whether it's choosing between cloud or on-premise deployments, having the option to move to Office 2013 and Windows 8, or supporting a variety of devices including PCs, smartphones and tablets, our customers have a myriad of choices to ensure they get the most from the M-Files ECM solution."
The beta version of M-Files 9.0 is currently available, with the official launch scheduled for late September 2012. In addition, to easy collaboration, file sharing and co-authoring with Windows SkyDrive, M-Files 9.0 offers a variety of new features and enhancements related to mobile access, search, cloud and hybrid cloud deployments, long-term archiving, ease of use and more.
