FolderMill - Watch Hot Folders and Automatically Process Incoming Files

Watch Hot Folders and
Automatically Process Incoming Files

FolderMill is a server-side application that watches defined hot folders and automatically converts incoming files or prints them on a specified printer. FolderMill provides an easy way to automate routine document processing tasks and establish a document flow in an enterprise environment. An administrator may define folders for monitoring and set actions to perform on incoming files. After this, it will be as simple for employees to print or convert documents as it is to copy files!
