One of my favorite things about FileHold is the number of unsolicited positive comments we regularly get from our customers. It made me start thinking and wondering if REAL customer service is now a thing of the past.

Concurrent sessions are one of the dimensions of licensing in FileHold. You can purchase as few or as many as you may need for the intensity of usage for your organization.

Many of our customers ask how they can send their invoices from their accounting systems into FileHold to store into the repository. Print-to-FileHold is ideal to use in these cases as it acts as a virtual printer driver which means that any application that has the print function can use Print-to-FileHold. When the invoice is “printed” from the accounting system, it is converted into a PDF document.

Most people have had to fill out forms in their lifetime. With PDF forms, you can fill out the form fields onscreen using text fields, buttons, drop down lists, and date pickers and then save or submit the form in electronic format. This significantly cuts down on the amount of paper and manual processing of forms. When a PDF form is in an electronic format, FileHold can extract the information entered into the form fields into the metadata fields of the schema.

As we all know the amount of information that we need to deal with continues to grow; we are bombarded with e-mail and other forms of electronic communication on a daily basis. If all of this information was on paper there would be absolutely no way to manage it. In that electronic information is now the medium of choice there is really no alternative but to create an organized and secure electronic information repository.
