The Challenge

M.Lambe had already been using ScanFile for storage of scanned documents but knew that the product was outdated and that the process of filing documentation could be improved to streamline the business processes. New digital files were also being created on a daily basis by users and saved to a Windows folder structure, meaning that documents had no version control and were creating duplicates of documents.

M.Lambe were looking for a solution that could improve the scanning of paper-based documentation whilst also enabling users to easily file digital documents and access these from anywhere. Integration to business critical systems such as Sage Construction and Sage Line 200 was also key to ensure that all information was easily accessible from one central location.

The Approach

EBC Group offered M.Lambe a new and cost effective Document Management solution that would adapt to the business requirements.

EBC Group engaged with M.Lambe staff and obtained a good understanding of the infrastructure, software packages being used and current business processes.

EBC Group began designing a solution that would provide the immediate functional requirements, but also allow the solution to extend the functionality to other aspects of the business in the future.

The Solution

"EBC Group demonstrated the knowledge and skill set needed to address our workflow issues."

After the successful implementation of the M-Files Solution, the systems at M.Lambe are now fully integrated, and all information is now accessible from one location.

All projects and associated documentation are now securely stored and version controlled.

Key documents can now be accessed remotely, from any location using the mobile and tablet apps.

M-Files has provided M.Lambe with workflows that have helped streamline and assist the business in daily tasks and management reporting.
