Similar to larger corporations, it has become increasingly vital for small businesses to devise processes that facilitate smooth operations and ensure consistent workflows across the entire organisation. But often, as these processes are implemented, new information silos are created, which further complicates the task of managing an organisation’s collective data.

Simply put, empowering employees to quickly and easily locate the exact content they need, regardless of which business application it resides in, leads to better decisions, faster results and improved collaboration. When small businesses can ensure the right content is in the right hands at the right time, they can focus on using information to drive growth, value and innovation.

This paper will explore real-world examples of how small businesses are using the M-Files enterprise information management (EIM) solution to eliminate information silos and break down the barriers between employees and their information, in order to facilitate growth. In all of these cases, a strong need existed for scalability in order to start small with their EIM initiative and expand gradually. At the same time, these smaller organisations also demanded simplicity and ease of use to drive company-wide adoption, along with the sophistication required to support the long-term needs of their growing businesses.
