NBC Universal Successfully Implements M-Files Software + Case Study

As a leader in document management solutions, M-Files continues to assist companies globally in efficiently managing all areas of business processing and effective workflow. For global corporation NBC Universal, M-Files was paramount for innovation, remaining one of the world’s leading media and entertainment companies.

There are many different cycles our contracts must go through – documents are requested, assigned, drafted, sent out for review, signed, counter-signed, amended, extended, etc. It was a challenge for us to keep track of the state of each individual contract. However, with the ability to label documents with metadata within M-Files, we now have much more visibility into the status of each contract. With a single click, we can see all the important information – who it’s assigned to, what state it’s in, which business requested it, the role of the person involved, if they have a particular clause in the contract, the latest version and the like.
— Lori Murray, Contract Administration Director at NBC Universal

Sometimes finding the right document when you need it is like finding a needle in a haystack. Where was that file saved? Who edited it last? Is this the current version? What if it didn’t matter? The beauty of M-Files DMS (Document Management Systems) is that it allows the user to access content based on what it is, not where it is, useful for companies from all industry sectors. For NBC Universal, the success M-Files brought made a significant difference.

The clients our department services have increased four-fold since I joined the department a number of years ago. M-Files helped us become more centralised with our processes from coast to coast as well as provide easy access to contractual data and reports.
