We believe users should be in control. We provide the means for the corporate librarian to centrally control the document vocabulary or metadata (data about data). This ensures standardized document naming conventions and search parameters allowing a company to rally around a simple common language for describing the content contained within their electronic software library.
We understand document management software does not work alone. For that reason we provide a no charge fully documented Web services API including coding examples to help organizations integrate third party applications with our software. We also provide optional "off the shelf" features that give the ability to search for documents in FileHold or add documents to FileHold from any third party applications.
