Customer Testimonial:

On behalf of our group, I think I can safely say “well done” and “many thanks” for the FileHold demonstration. For me, I was reminded of the power of FileHold; while at the same time, you introduced a new audience of its capabilities. But not just any audience. Fair warning, these ladies and gentlemen are the doers and shakers. As you can see, they think outside of the box and get things done. During this demo you challenged the group to ask the question “What would I like for FileHold to do for the applications/processes for which I am responsible”. I believe they accepted your challenge, and during the course of our call, they were able to identify at least two business improvement opportunities and one general work process:

  1. Use FileHold workflow to alert appropriate staff to take action on invoices
  2. Use SmartSoft scanning software to identify the metadata fields so that every invoice will no longer need to be handled
  3. While in Exchange (and perhaps other programs) highlight a word/term, use a shortcut key (defined in FileHold) that will launch FileHold and search documents for the highlighted word/term

I’m excited about what FileHold will unfold for us as we will continue to challenge the status quo.
