M-Files and Baystream Partner to Deliver Integrated ECM Capabilities17 Jul, 2013
DALLAS, TX - July 16, 2013 - M-Files Inc., the developer of M-Files cloud, on-premise and hybrid enterprise content management (ECM) solutions that manage information by what it is versus where it is stored, today announced that Baystream Corporation has joined the M-Files Partner Program.
Based in Montreal, Canada, Baystream provides business improvement solutions consisting of advisory services and software products with a focus on cloud technologies. Baystream business expertise is in Process Improvement and Quality Management. Baystream practices the Lean Six Sigma approach and advises companies in the preparation of ISO certifications.
By joining the M-Files Partner Program, companies can add a new revenue source in the rapidly-growing, multi-billion dollar document management and ECM market by selling and servicing M-Files as a solution that is highly complementary to their existing product portfolio. M-Files was included in the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for ECM and has established a leading position at the intersection of traditional ECM and the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) market. M-Files offers a unique combination of ease of use, configurability and features that range from general-purpose document control and workflow automation up through rich support for compliance-related content and processes, such as standard operating procedures (SOP), deviations, CAPAs (corrective action/preventative action) and audits. M-Files provides a broad spectrum of business opportunities for value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators and consulting services companies to serve the information management, quality and compliance requirements of their customers.
"Without a centralized and organization-wide approach to managing their content, many of our customers are vulnerable because of the difficulty and complexity associated with managing critical and sensitive information and processes that affect quality and compliance," said Edward L. Moore, president and CEO of Baystream Corporation. "With M-Files, we can help them establish document and data control processes within a quality management framework to improve manufacturing processes, enhance collaboration, better utilize existing resources and drive organizational efficiencies. With a strong cloud and hybrid deployment offering and the ability to interface with MS Office and other core systems, M-Files is a perfect complement to our existing product and service portfolio."
"Our partnership with Baystream reinforces our focus on providing manufacturing and engineering-centric companies with the complete set of purpose-built ECM capabilities they need to efficiently manage documentation and workflows associated with design, production and compliance," said Scott Erickson, vice president of channel sales at M-Files Inc. “With M-Files, Baystream customers can more effectively manage Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), Corrective and Preventative Actions (CAPAs) and other quality- and compliance-related information and processes while maintaining complete version histories and strict security controls."
