What do M-Files, TIBCO Nimbus and Regus have in common? They can help you achieve a truly efficient, paperless office setup, where everybody knows what to do, how to cooperate and keep in balance with their private lives, too.
Who are we?
Solution Management is a small consulting and software distribution company, offering soltions that make it easy for everybody in an organization to understand their role, get access to relevant information, cooperate with colleagues and be successful in their business life. We sell M-Files Document- and Information Management, TIBCO Nimbus Business Process Management and Intrexx Portal Solutions.
With the software solutions we offer, we help our customer understand their processes, manage their information and promote it to the end users.
Where do we come from?
We used to store our documents on everything, a folder on a server, Dropbox, our own PCs, Google Drive. You name it, we got it, more or less like many other companies. Very often we had stored several copies of various versions, with difficulties locating the right document in the correct version. We had ordinary offices with a lot of printed paper in binders, boxes, drawers. Again like most other businesses. Every morning everybody was visually reminded of things to do which was giving us a very bad start of the day, not focusing on the really important tasks of the day: concentrate on the customers.
Where are we now?

For many years we have been delivering Nimbus Business Process Management solutions to customers in the Nordic countries. Off course we use it ourselves and have our processes described visually in order to be efficient and understand how we deliver most value to our customers. A couple of years back we discovered M-Files as a fantastic Document- and Information Management Solution. After having seen the immense benefits from using it, we cannot imagine going back to anything else. It allows easy and secure access to all information and documents we need and it gives us the opportunity to become paperless, which we are now. Having an ultra flexible office rental at Regus adds the last bit of flexibility, which makes it possible to become fully efficient. Let me explain why this is the case.
We want to:
- Deliver good value to our customers
- Do the right things right
- Know what we are doing
- Capture knowledge about our work in order to improve
- Have low fixed costs
- Be successful as individuals and as a company
- Have fun

Regus offers office space globally and is present in the locations we work in, the Nordic countries. They have many products, but we utilize the concepts of Day Office and Business Lounge access. A person with a Day Office Card can book an office eg. 10 days per month. Depending on availibilty he gets his own office for the day – sometimes it is large sometimes small, but it is always tidy and ready to work in. The wireless system recognizes you in all locations.
What we like about it is that it is guaranteed paperless. You only have what you bring along in your bag. Thereby you do not have copies of reports and specifications lying around, that could constitute a new version of a document. We are forced to have all our information stored in our systems, M-Files and Nimbus, which improves the value of the information in them. We are always sure that all new information is available to those who need it.
