The IML Module
The IML module enables M-Files to access content that lives outside M-Files, for example in SharePoint, Shared Network Folders, Google Drive, OpenText, Salesforce and other systems, from day 1, even with mobile devices.
Expose content to M-Files capabilities
Important content in those systems can be promoted, where it then becomes managed with metadata, while the content remains in it's original place. Doing this exposes the content to the powerful product features of M-Files, such as workflows, permissions, notifications, version management, dynamic views, contextual tree views, offline availability, e-signing and much more!
Use artificial intelligence to suggest metadata
Another aspect of the IML module is it's use of intelligence services that assist the user in filing content by providing metadata suggestions, thus making the effort to add content to M-Files more convenient, more accurate, complete and faster.

Testimonial - Invertec
Description of Invertec and Products
"Since its formation in 1980, Invertec has grown to become the leading supplier of low-voltage lighting and interior systems to the bus, coach, commercial vehicle and rail markets. We currently supply many major bus and coach manufacturers in the UK, plus many other industry leaders across the globe.

What M-Files has fixed for us
"As a manufacturer with a high mix of customised products we generate and use a lot of drawings on a daily basis to build our products. Managing these drawings has historically been a challenge for us as we utilised a manual filing paper system. Whilst this system worked there was challenges with drawings going missing / being filed incorrectly and also managing drawing changes across a growing business. M-Files has allowed us to fully control our drawing system in terms of drawing accessibility and introducing electronic workflows for change management.
With the M-Files infrastructure coupled with the training and support from Mintronics we now have Shop Floor PCs across every workcentre in our site that allows operators to view the latest drawings for their task."
The future as you see it
"M-Files is now a business critical solution for us and over the coming months we look to increase our usage of using this tool to control further tasks within the business which ultimately will lead to higher efficiency and better communication."
