Editor's review

This is a utility that determines if a new file has come into a folder being watched, and let that be processed further.

FolderMill automatically converts documents that appear in an incoming folder. The conversion process can convert documents into a PDF, JPG or TIFF. It can let you get the incoming document printed too. That makes it very simple for your employees to get documents printed or converted simply by saving the file to the watched folder. There is no GUI, nor one is needed as the action required of a user is just to save a file into the hot folder. When printing a document, it is possible to not only on a specific printer but to direct the document to multiple of them. This tool supports popular types of office documents including PDF, Word, Excel, Image files. You can combine actions on a file. For example, a document getting printed can also be converted to a PDF, if you like.

You can define that the original document be saved. Document processing flow can be logged, alert issues can be sent to specific addresses if there is any issue with the incoming document. This extreme ease of use lets any user to be able to start using it right away. The software works on a server. There is no additional software to be installed on client machines. FolderMill can be integrated into your existing document processing flow quite easily. The software works quite fast. This could become a simple tool for a large set up working on similar kind of document-based workflow. This is a good product.

Publisher's description

FolderMill monitors a folder and automatically prints or converts to PDF, JPG or TIFF all new documents and image files. System administrator defines "hot folders" for watching and set actions to perform. After this all employees in the office will be able to print or convert documents as simple as copying files!
There is no need to install any additional software applications on the end-user computers. FolderMill ensures conversion of all the incoming files to PDF, JPG or TIFF with very few efforts: simply by placing the documents into one folder and taking them out from another one!
To print the documents all the company employees need to do is to place them into one of the "hot folders". There is no need to open every file individually, select the printer and specify printing parameters.
No printer driver installation is required either. All the documents will be printed based on the same printing standards, for example, "Page size = Letter; Tonner using mode = Economical; Color mode = Grayscale; Number of copies = 2". Additionally, to print several documents in a row the user needs to place them all into the "hot folder" instead of opening and printing every single file individually. This is really a time saving feature for people who need to print tons of documents daily.
FolderMill supports all popular types of office documents including Microsoft Office Word files, RTF and plain text documents, Excel files, PowerPoint presentations, Visio drawings and charts, Microsoft Office Publisher and Adobe PDF files, XPS, JPG, PNG, PCX, DCX, Bitmap, GIF, TGA, TIFF images and documents.
The list of supported printers includes desktop laser and jet printers connected to the laptop via USB or Wi-Fi, high-performance network printers used in offices, plotters and virtual printers use for virtual document printing to PDF, Postscript and image files.
