OMV rolls-out M-Files

Legacy document management and reporting system replaced with M-Files EIM.

Austrian OMV is to replace its deploy M-Files to replace ‘most of’ its legacy enterprise content management systems covering regulated documents. OMV Group was using a combination of systems for managing its information assets*. But these systems were found to be difficult to use, leading to low user adoption. Many employees continued to store files on internal network folders and local drives.

OMV needed a content management solution for several thousand users across its operations in Norway, the UK, and its Austrian headquarters. After a formal RFP process that included intensive solution usability testing, M-Files enterprise information management (EIM) solution was chosen. The system has since been deployed to OMV’s upstream operations in Romania, Pakistan and Austria. M-Files’ scope has now extended to include technical documentation related to refineries, and the solution also serves as the regulations and standards platform for the OMV Group.

OMV’s Florian Neuböck said, ‘M-Files is not only easy to use but it’s also easy to configure and administer in a manner that enables us to comply with strict regulatory requirements.’ M-Files’ Greg Milliken added, ‘Quick access to accurate and up-to-date information brings a major competitive advantage to information-intensive industries such as oil and gas.’ More from M-Files.

* OMV has previously reported deployments of EMC Documentum in its upstream Isis project (Oil ITJ March 2009) and in a WebGIS environment developed by Austrian Synergis.
