FileHold Integration with Microsoft SharePoint

This article was written by a magazine entitled "SharePoint Reviews" on the features of the Document Management Software and how they integrate with Microsoft SharePoint.   Following is a summary of the article with a link to the original at the end.

FileHold is an off the shelf document management software solution - documents are stored in their native format and there is no restriction on the types or size of document that can be stored . Users are only allowed to see document to which they have permission.

FileHold can be installed as a "web part" of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server or Windows SharePoint Services.  The document management software offers integration for Sharepoint to users who want to implement the Paperless Office but need tools that are not inherent in SharePoint. Features such as: document scanning software supporting over 300 scanner types, viewers, document approval, document numbering, and 3rd party integration tools such as FastFind all in a single package.

FileHold's SharePoint integration synchronizes user rights via Active Directory and allows users to move document(s) between the document management software and SharePoint with simple mouse clicks. Following are features / capabilities found in the document management software.
