History[edit]

First released in 2003 and now on version 3.0 FileDirector is a product of the Spielberg group of document management software applications. Based on Microsoft .net programming language it allows for scalable enterprise wide connectivity and can support up to 128 servers with upwards of 5000 users.

Capture[edit]

FileDirector has capture capabilities [4] built into the standard Client software. Scan Profiles can be created, which hold the settings for the image scanner attached, and can be configured to store documents under specific categories. FileDirector supports many input devices, with its support for ISIS, TWAIN and its integration with ecopy ShareScan, enabling a user to send documents directly from a Multifunction printer Device or Photocopier to FileDirector.

Compliance[edit]

Some industries have strict rules governing how their documents are handled. This can mean that the files stored within FileDirector must be shown to be compliant with these rules. Tools within FileDirector assist in achieving compliance to various regulations which organizations must adhere to. Tools like retention period control, revision control and audit trail mean that documents are stored in such a way that they can be audited and tracked if required by any governing bodies.[5]

Target Audience[edit]

The target user is the small to mid-size businesses needing long-term archiving and searching capability of documents. FileDirector is a competitor to more common and mainstream document storage programs such as Adobe PDF files or Microsoft Sharepoint and offers a storage structure and searchable database on the 400+ different file types it stores. It is also designed to assist in reducing the ecological footprint of organizations by promoting the usage of less paper.[6]
