Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

FileHold

FileHold is well suited because it reduces the paper use for approvals. It also allows the managers to track the time employees spend sending files for approval and how many times it takes them to get the approval. FileHold is less appropriate when the approvers of a document are out of office and they did not set up a backup approver

  • Keep track of approval process once a document is submitted for approval
  • Allowed me to run reports on the amount of documents approved the first time through, second time through etc.
  • Allowed tracking of documents.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Whenever there was an update done to the program, we would run into multiple issues.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

I find FileHold more useful than SAP at times. It is easier to use, you do not need transaction codes. Both programs allow you to run reports. I am not sure if SAP could be compared with FileHold due to the fact that I use SAP to get approval and funding on tooling contracts. However, in FileHold, all you get is an approval from your supervisors. If all the departments would use FileHold, it would be more efficient and effective.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.
