Simple to use

“Even the most sophisticated digital transformation initiative will fail if it isn’t easy to embrace for the knowledge workers tasked with undertaking it. PaperVision® Folder Monitor automates the first step of any workflow reliant on document capture — finding the documents wherever they might reside and incorporating them into the system. Folder Monitor lets users work in a way that is already familiar to them.”

Dark mode is an available user option

Chris Spishock, Director of Technical Sales for Digitech Systems, says an important goal in the development of Folder Monitor was to improve the user experience. “This stand-alone application puts all of the power at the user’s fingertips,” he said. “You don’t need to bother with outside database administrators. You don’t need to bother with FTP (file transfer protocol) sites.”

Folder Monitor is the perfect choice for businesses of any size that may not need the power of PaperVision® Capture’s advanced capture, auto-classification, and data extraction tools. Folder Monitor works with virtually any scanner or multifunction device (i.e., central copiers) to connect with ImageSilo®, PaperVision®.com, and PaperVision® Enterprise. It includes a user-friendly display that makes setup and management easy. It also allows for the creation of indexes based on the folder structure where the file is found, eliminating any need to hand-key those values. “Since many businesses deal with the same type of documents day in and day out, the folder structure approach works really well,” Chris said.

“This stand-alone application puts all of the power at the user’s fingertips.”

How secure is your current folder and file handling system? If you’re still dealing with paper files and folders, your information is at risk. Electronic data also can be at risk. Did you know that data breaches were up 14% in the first part of 2022 from already high levels? Learn more at Data Breaches Up in First Quarter of 2022 - CNET. With PaperVision Folder Monitor, advanced data security and user access restrictions are automatically applied to each uploaded file.

HK Bain, CEO of Digitech Systems, notes the shift toward hybrid work only adds to the threats that PaperVision Folder Monitor is designed to address. “With more people working remotely than ever before, businesses are struggling to keep information secure.… It’s critical that organizations consistently apply data security the moment records are created, and PaperVision Folder Monitor makes it automatic. Every document gets locked down in the information management system-whether it comes from a scanner, a copier, a network directory, or an individual desktop,” he said.

User-Friendly Features of Folder Monitor

A summary of the Folder Monitor features developed with you in mind:

  • A stand-alone application. Access Folder Monitor directly, without the need for FTP sites or going through the PaperVision Administration Console. Simply point it to the folder you want to import, and Folder Monitor will move the documents into the document management system for you.
  • Simple, user-friendly design. The application and screen displays come with intuitive setup and management. Dark Mode viewing allows you to choose how you’d like the screens displayed. Ease-of-use is one of Digitech Systems’ foundational product development philosophies and Folder Monitor puts it on full display.
  • Convenience: The application allows multiple jobs to run concurrently, and jobs can be run any time — day, night or weekends — using Windows Task Scheduler.
  • More control over index fields: Improved mapping and “cleaning” of index field values includes the capability to parse folder names in addition to file names. There’s also the option to use an ASCII text file for index field values, which is helpful for documents that have multiple index field values or when those values contain characters that are illegal for Windows File Explorer.

Folder Monitors provides the latest in secure, automated file and folder transfers to free you and your staff from the busywork of manual file handling and data entry. As a free software addition available to users of, ImageSilo or PaperVision Enterprise, the value is tremendous. And it’s easier to use, placing benefits at your fingertips.
