As Newark and Sherwood Homes began to see the full scope of what M-Files could do, they began investigating how else it could be used to streamline processes across the organisation. Previously disparate systems have now been connected to M-Files, such as Careline, which provides emergency assistance to tenants. Careline connects a pendant worn by an individual to a central phone line through which they call for help. This involves the management of related contracts, invoicing information, confidential personal information and more. Previously, this critical information was stored in a network folder and it was challenging to manage and cross reference information. "With M-Files we can quickly find and verify contract information which has helped us improve our invoicing process " said McIntosh. THE NEXT STEPS ON THE DIGITAL JOURNEY Housing is a highly regulated sector and the safety of tenants is the top priority. One of the critical processes Newark and Sherwood Homes manage is ensuring that property certificates are in place and in date for its properties, and to be able to provide proof of servicing. "One of the next projects we are looking to address with M-Files is to streamline the process of monitoring the regulatory requirements for the properties we manage," added McIntosh. "M-Files will alert us to properties where certifications are due for renewal and manage the supporting documentation effectively, helping to ensure the safety of our tenants and meeting regulatory obligations." COLLABORATING WITH M-FILES A collaborative approach has meant that Newark and Sherwood Homes has been given the tools it needs to maximise the value of the solution for years to come. "M-Files were fantastic to work with throughout the process," concluded McIntosh. "The consultants on the project helped us to see the full scope of the platform and took the time to really understand what it was we wanted to achieve. M-Files has saved us hours of time spent searching for documents and information. Our staff are able to collaborate effectively and be more productive, meaning we are able to deliver a better service to our tenants." M-Files provides a next generation intelligent information management platform that improves business performance by helping people find and use information more effectively. Unlike traditional enterprise content management (ECM) systems or content services platforms, M-Files unifies systems, data and content across the organization without disturbing existing systems and processes or requiring data migration. With the Intelligent Metadata Layer, M-Files breaks down silos by delivering an in-context experience for accessing and leveraging information that resides in any system and repository, including network folders, SharePoint, file sharing services, ECM systems, CRM, ERP and other business systems and repositories. Thousands of organizations in over 100 countries use M-Files for managing their business information and processes, including NBC Universal, Rovio and SAS.

If anyone needs it, they can quickly find it and that makes a big difference in our processing times - allowing us to provide a more efficient service to our tenants." - Kristin McIntosh, Project Research Officer, Newark & Sherwood Homes
