M-Files partner simplyfile offers a connector for integrating the Parashift capture solution into the M-Files platform for intelligent information management. Digitization and automation ensure increased productivity.

Switzerland 19.10.2021 – simplyfile, a Swiss technology company and reseller of M-Files, has integrated Parashift Platform, an Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) solution powered by AI and machine learning into M-Files. The developed connector enables M-Files partners and customers to classify any type of document automatically and read data as easily, quickly, and cost-effectively as never before.

“Integrations with leading document capture solutions, such as Parashift, are instrumental to our vision of supporting companies worldwide to realize the benefits of intelligent information management. Essentially, this integration with Parashift enables our customers to increase productivity, accelerate digital transformation, and simplify the automation of critical business processes”, said Christian Habenstein, Director Channel Sales Western Europe at M-Files.

Parashift’s IDP solution leverages ground-breaking Document Swarm Learning technologies and allows for drastically shortened time-to-value. The platform comes with the ability to handle all kinds of business documents by processing any type of structured, semi-structured, or even unstructured document, from invoices to contracts to handwritten paper documents. Processes that were previously based on manual interaction can thus be automated and the added value of M-Files’ intelligent information management platform further expanded.

“We share a common vision with simplyfile. A vision of helping partners and customers drive innovation by automating mission-critical business processes at scale. The collaboration on the IDP solution for M-Files illustrates how we have approached automation as an enterprise-wide challenge by taking automation technology and OCR to the next level and introducing machine learning-based data extraction. We look forward to continuing to work together to deliver truly transformative solutions that meet our clients’ dynamic challenges”, said Alain Veuve, CEO at Parashift.

“Automation is driving digital transformation across a range of industries and organizations. Nevertheless, there are still a number of trivial tasks that are not yet automatized across departments. Using the M-Files connector for the Parashift Platform, our clients can reduce document processing time significantly, boosting productivity and allowing teams to focus on more business-critical tasks”, said Urs Kälin, Managing Director and Business Consultant at simplyfile.

For M-Files partners interested in implementing customer projects with Parashift’s IDP solution, an M-Files demo environment with the developed M-Files Vault Application for Parashift is available for testing purposes. The connector itself can be used by M-Files partners worldwide.
