M-Files, the intelligent information management company, has announced the acquisition of Hubshare to strengthen external content sharing and collaboration and deliver an improved digital client experience. Hubshare offers a secure digital workplace portal that enhances user and client engagement through collaborative working, secure file sharing and project management.
Now part of the M-Files product portfolio, Hubshare provides a secure information exchange platform where companies can be forerunners in driving digitalisation and improving the customer experience using branded, customisable client portals. The portals can be tailored to meet individual client needs which drive collaboration and productivity.
Antti Nivala, Founder and CEO at M-Files said, "the Hubshare acquisition helps us deliver a unique digital client experience and better serve knowledge worker industries such as Professional Services, where information sharing and external collaboration are critical requirements. Our integrated offering takes M-Files from the back office to the frontline of our customer's business, helping provide a digital window for our customer's clients as they drive digitisation across the organisations they serve."
Unlike typical file sync-based document portal solutions where information is copied from an enterprise content repository, M-Files now offers a secure and integrated solution for internal and external collaboration without data duplication. While the M-Files user experience is optimised for streamlining internal document management processes, the new Hubshare hub in M-Files provides key information such as documents, people, processes, discussions and more to external users, such as clients, via a branded portal that is optimized for an improved external user experience. This helps strengthen customer satisfaction with a better and more compliant collaboration experience.
Nicholas Child, CEO, Hubshare added, "with the announcement of our acquisition, we celebrate our common vision and goal of making work smarter and collaboration more efficient for our clients. Our combined offering will undoubtedly benefit organisations across the globe seeking a more secure and integrated solution for internal and external collaboration. We are delighted to be an integral part of the M-Files journey, delivering our digital client experience and collaborative workspace solution alongside the visionary M-Files intelligent information management platform."
