READING, UK – March 18th, 2021 – M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced a new alliance with Kyocera Document Solutions UK Limited, a group company of Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. and a leading global provider of total document solutions.

Kyocera's portfolio in the UK includes reliable and eco-friendly multifunction printers (MFPs) as well as business ICT solutions and consulting services that enable customers to optimise and manage their document workflow, reaching new levels of efficiency.  The company helps customers put knowledge to work to drive change. It provides innovation and efficiency for corporate functions such as Accounts Payable, Human Resources, File Management and Policies, Contract Management and Digital Mailrooms. Kyocera's key driver choosing M-Files was its innovative approach of organising content based on what it is, not where it is stored and providing all content in context by linking it to other relevant information. The intelligent information management platform allows users to instantly connect to existing network folders and other repositories and benefit from built-in AI, workflow capabilities and advanced search and filter tools.

"Our customers will benefit from the M-Files next-generation intelligent information management platform," declared Spencer Lea, sales director – comprehensive services at Kyocera UK. "Other platforms require months of work in defining folder structures, migrating data into those new folder structures, and getting buy-in from key stakeholders and employees. M-Files plugs into data repositories on day one, allowing employees to access documents they need from anywhere and giving the companies value from M-Files within a week or two of adopting it. This especially helps companies in the current pandemic with many staff working somewhat isolated from home."

"Where other vendors of printing products simply aim to sell a piece of software or hardware, Kyocera listens to the customer's real need and analyses the customer's situation in detail – especially in complex and challenging requirements. This allows Kyocera to recommend solutions that perfectly fit and provide outstanding and sustainable value," said Christian Habenstein, Director Channel Sales Western Europe at M-Files.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Kyocera. The rich Kyocera portfolio of products provides us with the opportunity to bundle them with M-Files for those customers that prefer to buy complete solutions of software and hardware," Habenstein continued. "We feel that our complementary offerings enable our common customers to be more efficient while at the same time, they can reduce their costs and improve their customer service. Although the new partnership has just been signed, we are already seeing substantial demand in terms of several interesting opportunities."
