It’s Easy to Manage ScanSnap Scans in the Cloud with M-Files Cloud Vault

ScanSnap is helping businesses of all sizes address the inefficiencies of handling paper documents, and in the process, helping them create a more productive and green environment.

But what happens after paper documents are scanned and captured as an image file or PDF? Frequently, scanned documents simply move from traditional file cabinets to disorganized Windows folders, jumping from the frying pan into the fire, so to speak. It can often be even harder to find a document once scanned and stored on a folder on a hard drive on your system or one on the network. ‘What was the scanned document named?’ and ‘Where was it saved?’ are questions asked every day, over and over again, with countless hours lost searching for files when “going paperless” should make things easier.

M-Files Cloud Vault is a new document management service that enables scanned documents to be tagged, organized and stored in the “cloud” for instant retrieval by just typing in a tag or any word in the document. There’s no need to purchase or configure a server. It’s easy because the M-Files interface is just Windows Explorer so you access the vault the same way you access My Documents or My Computer, it’s just faster and more secure.

Moreover, literally all Windows applications are supported using the standard File Open and Save commands you already know and use every day.

Using M-Files Cloud Vault in conjunction with the ScanSnap is an ideal way to organize and manage your scanned documents, as well as any other electronic document from applications like Word, Excel, Acrobat, QuickBooks, and so on.

M-Files can also be easily customized to support a variety of businesses and industries including accounting and legal firms, medical practices, real estate offices, retail businesses, and more. Just choose the document types your business uses and the tags to help efficiently organize them, and start scanning and saving to the vault. No more chaotic folders to search, just save to the vault and tag.
