Sharp Corporation partners with M-Files

Sharp Corporation of Australia has announced it will be joining the partner program of information management company, M-Files Corporation. The aim is to leverage the M-Files approach to help transition Sharp MFD clients from their outdated systems and network folder-based schemes to a modern information management platform.

Daniel Gard, head of business solutions group at Sharp Corporation of Australia, said, “Sharp Corporation of Australia sells through a direct sales team and also has a strong partner network across the country. Our teams have been working with clients across a number of industry verticals, many of which have unique document management needs. The aim is to have a solution in our portfolio that is easy to use, integrates with the Microsoft Office 365 Platform and is highly scalable.”

“The functionality offered by M-Files will greatly assist our customers by letting us connect directly with existing data sources and repositories, providing a single user interface to search and retrieve documents from essentially anywhere, which means no more expensive and time-consuming document migration projects.

“M-Files also lets us integrate with well-known applications such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, IBM FileNet and OpenText. It’s a great tool to consolidate business workflows, data repositories and existing enterprise applications.”

By incorporating M-Files intelligent information management as a complementary solution to its existing product portfolio, Sharp Corporation of Australia is facilitating a new revenue source in the rapidly-growing, multi-billion-dollar document management and enterprise content management (ECM) market, recently renamed as the "content services platform" market by Gartner and other market research firms.

“M-Files provides a broad spectrum of business opportunities for value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators and consulting services companies in a variety of industries and market segments," said Nicholas Delaveris, ANZ alliance and partner director at M-Files.

"We are committed to providing partners with the resources and support needed to drive new licence and recurring subscription revenue, as well as implementation and integration services to maximise profitability, develop expertise and build stronger customer relationships.”
