A quick refresher on the value of Folder Monitor to your sales efforts: This free stand-alone software improves our longtime Directory Manager by giving your customers an easy, user-friendly way to automate batch import and indexing. The added value gives you an advantage when competing for new business or when protecting your existing customer base. Folder Monitor allows companies to:

  • Streamline efficiencies and reduce costs by enabling automatic 24×7 upload of folders and files to the ECM system from shared drives, desktop computers, and more.
  • Get more value out of scanners, multifunction devices, and other hardware by automatically moving documents to the ECM.
  • Improve security of documents by instantly moving them into the ECM where user access and security settings are immediately applied to protect information.
