Intelligent Information Management Provider Recognized as B-to-B Company of the Year

AUSTIN, Texas – December 3, 2021M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced that M‑Files has been named a gold winner in the Company of the Year – B‑to‑B category of the Best in Biz Awards.

The Best in Biz Awards is an independent business awards program judged by prominent reporters and editors from top-tier publications from North America and around the world. M‑Files was recognized as a gold winner based on the company’s innovative, modern approach to information management that enables a more efficient way to work amidst the shift to today’s remote/hybrid reality. M-Files has enhanced its technology to work for customers by anticipating users’ needs and allowing knowledge workers to work intuitively. Unlike other platforms on the market, AI is embedded at the core of M-Files, enabling the platform to put content into the right context, thus improving visibility, security, and processability of information.

"In today's hybrid workforce, we’ve seen an increase in the amount of data organizations generate – much of which is scattered across multiple systems with no single source of truth,” said Antti Nivala, founder and CEO, M-Files. “Being recognized as a gold winner in the Company of the Year – B-to-B category validates that our modern approach to information management helps organizations overcome the growing challenges of siloed information, ensuring employees are connected with the content that they need, when they need it, regardless of where it is stored.”

The 2021 Best in Biz Awards program received more than 700 entries from public and private companies of all sizes and spanning all geographic regions and industries in the U.S. and Canada, ranging from some of the best-known global brands to the most innovative start-ups and irrepressible local companies. Winners were determined based on scoring from independent judging panels featuring some of the most respected national and local newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. The 2021 judging panel included, among others, writers from Associated Press, Barron’s, Consumer Affairs, Inc., USA Today and Wired.

Over the course of 2021, M-Files has achieved numerous milestones including an $80 million Series C growth investment, the acquisition of Hubshare to strengthen external content sharing and collaboration, and the launch of a new partner program on the heels of record-breaking global channel sales growth. In addition, M-Files recently announced the findings of a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting which determined that the M-Files metadata-driven document management platform can deliver nearly a 270% return on investment (ROI) over three years to midsize and enterprise customers.
