IGas Energy rolls out M-Files

Document management system supports UK explorers’ compliance and information sharing.

Onshore UK oil producer IGas Energy has deployed M-Files’ eponymous document management solution to meet ISO 9001 certification and for general purpose document management and quality assurance throughout the organization.

Dallas-based M-Files uses a ‘metadata-based’ approach to document management that is claimed to eliminate information silos and provide rapid access to content from any core business system and device. M-Files manages information by ‘what’ it is as opposed to ‘where’ it is stored, with on-premises, cloud and hybrid options.

IGas CIO Chris Holly said, ‘M-Files was originally deployed for compliance purposes. But now, its use has extended across the business as a comprehensive platform that manages as much of our company information and related processes as possible. M-Files was easily configured to meet our needs and has enabled better collaboration and secure information sharing.’

M-Files is integrated with Esri’s ArcGIS in a well management portal that exposes production, land and operations data. The solution provides traceability and versioning of documents and related information. M-Files is also used to managing authorizations for expenditures and license applications.
