Document version control software provides: check in / checkout ability preventing documents from being overwritten or deleted as documents are updated by more than one party. All versions of a document are maintained by the software.
Document scanning and imaging
FileHold ships with scanning and imaging software that support all scanners types to allow organizations to “go paperless”. Basic and advanced third party scanning software is supported for both simple and complex document scanning operations. This is our partner software for processing scanned documents, looking for text using zonal OCR, and pre-populating metadata fields before import into FileHold. This is particularly powerful with standardized forms like invoices as part of the AP process. We offer a complimentary license of this software with installs, which can be installed on multiple workstations, although only one copy can be running at a time.
Check documents out / Check documents in
Users are able to check in and check out documents from the software from within Microsoft Office applications, using the Desktop Application or from anywhere in the world using the web interface.
Document "tagging" or metadata capture
Capturing metadata or "tagging" (key data about the document) is the key to successful search and document organization. The software has easy to use controlled document tagging insuring documents are classified.
The Virtual Folders feature in the software allows limitless aggregation of documents throughout the library into personal "views". A Project Manager might have a virtual folder containing project documentation, project legal contract documents, invoices, design documentation and emails even though each document is stored in different locations of the library.
FileHold offers two language packs as standard features: French and Spanish. The user interface can be translated into any language by customers or partners. Some languages that have been translated by customers include Polish, Arabic and Chinese.
If you are travelling or out of the office and are not connected to the FileHold document management server, you can still work on your important documents offline. The software will recognize the document changes and can be synchronized with the Library once you are back online.
Document to document linking builds parent or child relationships between documents and allows users to link and organize documents in logical groups. Linking provides the ability to create document shortcuts to documents frequently needed.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and indexing
Using the scanning software that ships with the paperless office software users can convert the text on typed paper documents into editable and searchable information using Optical Character Recognition (OCR). The information that is zonally OCR'ed can be imported into the metadata fields of FileHold.
Matter-centric filing (Auto-tagging)
Metadata is automatically applied to a document when being added to a specific destination folder. Matter Centric filing is a feature / term commonly used in the legal industry.
User roles and security
FileHold ships with a choice out of 11 different user security roles ranging from "read only" to "System Administration" to provide an appropriate level of user access permissions for workers at all levels. Users see only documents that administrators want them to see. To learn more about How FileHold solves the user security business problem go to: business problem solved securing access to documents.
FileHold software can be configured so that certain folders on the local computer or network are "watched" by FileHold and then automatically moved into the library. The documents imported into FileHold by the watched folder functionality can be automatically tagged and destination folder pre-configured.
Ease of use
The FileHold filing structure mirrors the physical office filing environment. Document cabinets contain drawers that contain folder groups and or folders that contain documents. This familiar document filing approach ensures that users can easily browse for documents in a logical and efficient fashion.

FileHold software allows users to subscribe to and to be notified of edits to documents or changes to folders they have subscribed to. When an existing document is updated or a document is added to a folder, the user receives email notification that the change has occurred, who has changed it, and receives a secure link to directly access the document.
Document naming standards
