Pros: The workflow process works very well. It has features like signing off on a project before it moves to the next employee, and email alerts letting you know it is ready to be updated. Very user friendly when setting up a workflow process.

Cons: You are unable to set up sub folders at this time. It would be a nice feature to set up a folder for a project and have sub folders inside. It would also be nice if excel could be integrated into the software, having a spread sheet that employees could update and alert others that a change has been made.

Overall: Enlighten digital file manager is a great product. The software has worked very well for us in managing our files, going paperless and setting up workflows.

Pros: Digital File Manager is easy to use for anyone, and we keep coming up with new ways to let it help us

Cons: I really miss getting up from my desk 15 times a day to look for a hard copy, or to wait for a response from someone that has a document that I'm waiting for (not)

Overall: Documents flow among and into our organization constantly - from all mediums and directions, and we've been able to set up flows to direct those documents to the appropriate funnels and if applicable, store them for future reference. The documents stored are fully searchable, and so are found easily - whenever they are needed. We've eliminated all that extra work of filing, searching, asking 'hey where is that copy...'

Pros: Time efficient.

Multiple ways to add files to the software

Security features are very easy to get done.

Cons: There is nothing negative I can say about this software. I really has helped us shave off hours of filing time.

Overall: You can easily organize all your documents into electronic folders. We have significantly reduced the time it takes to find documents. No more flipping through paperwork to find what you need. Our sales staff have shipped orders right at there finger tips. There are so many wonderful things about this software!

Pros: It's very fast and easy to implement and use.

Cons: Sometimes we have difficulty narrowing our searches, and finding things, but for the most part it works well for us.

Overall: We have to keep large numbers of customer agreements, certificates, purchase orders etc, and our old system was very cumbersome. This takes up much less space and is easier to maintain and find what we need quickly. The ability to email the file and be done is painless. It also "self cleans" and purges when we set it to. Very convenient for us.

Pros: Fast and easy search capability.

Easy to setup folders with different inputs from drag and drop, email, scan from a network printer or print right to it.

Cons: Everytime a search is done via desktop client it opens a new browser tab even if one is already open. I have seen some people have a ton of tabs open just from all the different searches they have done throughout the day.

Overall: Overall it has been great. The staff has grown into it and now an everyday application that everyone uses. It has also helped us eliminate unnecessary printing and a better faster way to file many different types of document no matter the security level.

Thanks for the review John.

Our developers have been researching the best way to prevent the new browser tab from opening with each Client Manager search.

We'll keep you updated on our progress

Pros: Ease of storing and retrieving documents

No Downtime

Cons: None, it's the best file storage software I've ever interacted with.

Overall: We have been using Enlighten for about 6 years now and the Englighten.Net software is very easy to use both in storing and retrieving of documents. There is rarely (if any) downtime and if you do hit any issues the support staff are a delight to work with. I highly recommend Enlighten, it will increase productivity and help rid your office of piles and piles of paperwork!

Pros: Ease of use for all levels of computer expertise.

Support has been great.

Cons: Nothing.....it just works great. Wish everything was this seamless.

Overall: We asked the company that invented the software that runs our company about their experience with Enlighten, because they had Enlighten as a Partner. They said a lot of their customers use it, but they hadn't really heard much. Trust me, if they had recommended a product that didn't work, they would have heard about it. This works seamlessly with their software, and we no longer have a warehouse full of boxes of old paper. Wish we had converted years ago.

Pros: Ease of use. Users can either scan, print, or drag and drop a document or picture directly to the appropriate department folder. All documents are saved securely pushed up to the cloud.

Saved documents can then either be printed or emailed.

Cons: We have had no issues with Digital File Manager

Overall: Securely storing documents

Pros: Easy to scan in images using Email, File Folders, or Print Drivers. The OCR works great and setting up Users and new Folders is so simple. They really have worked hard to keep this a simple document imaging solution with easy to manipulate work flow settings. Support has always been good with quick results.

Cons: We didn't find it sooner, maybe they need more advertising but I'm not sure how my company found it in the first place.

FYI. I would ware a XXL Polo if I had one?

Overall: It has easily removed our need to keep and use paper while keeping our documents easier to find that with paper. Even our less knowledgeable users find this easy to adopt and provide input on how they can use it more efficiently .

Pros: Easy to use. Set-up is fairly simple.

Cons: Does not always see text or numbers if too close to other letters and numbers.

Overall: Best thing about DFM is the time savings when looking for something. Instead of taking 5 minutes to get up, go to the files and look for something, it takes about 30 seconds. A great time saver overall.

Pros: Ease of use and setup. Help in converting old files. Different ways to get documents into Enet. Printing, Faxing, Emailing, Scanning

Cons: Not yet integrated with Active Directory. Security Setup could be and will be a little better.

Overall: If you don't use document imaging currently it will save your employees a lot of time. We are replacing a document imaging system that we were not able to upgrade with due to some special programming done when going live and current lack of support. Enet allows for more user licenses than we had with our previous system. They've been great converting our documents from our previous document imaging system.
