It is amazing to realize just how much paper you can amass over the course of 15 years. I’m not talking about anything other than the bare bones basics: Bills, Pay Stubs, Taxes, Mortgages, and etc. In just over 15 years I was working on filling my seventh 4-drawer filing cabinet. Finally, I decided that enough was enough and I began digesting all the pertinent information I could find on creating a paperless office.
I had most of what I needed to tackle this job; but I was completely lost on which database I needed to purchase. I read every product review that I could find on this category of product. The most impressive product by a long shot was FileCenter 7 Professional. This product had all the features that I could ever ask for and try as I might I could find nothing negative written anywhere about this product. Based on this research I bought FileCenter 7 Professional approximately four months ago and spent approximately 3 days scanning and organizing every scrap of paper I had in those filing cabinets. Currently I have only one-half of one drawer in a 2-drawer filing cabinet filled.
I can heartily recommend FileCenter 7 Professional to anyone looking for either a replacement for Adobe Acrobat or looking to take on a similar paperless project. So much so, that I plan to upgrade to FileCenter 8 Professional.
