Curo Group, a Bath-based housing association and housebuilder has selected M-Files as its core information management system.
In a joint project, Curo and M-Files have designed a new, metadata-driven solution to manage documents, automate compliance and optimise business processes. About 20 document classes have been defined with automated metadata and access controls to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. This metadata approach will also allow presenting content in context by relating documents to each other as well as to additional information such as tenants, properties or projects. The team will migrate data from their existing EMC solution, Documotive, which will be replaced.
About 600 users will benefit from this modern approach to information management, having fast and intuitive access to over two million documents.
Tom Battersby, Director of ICT at Curo Group said: “Managing large amounts of documents under strict compliance with regulatory controls is core to our business. M-Files impressed us with its rich out of the box functions. Also, the ease of integration and flexibility to meet our specific needs were very much appealing.”
