PROS / You can easily organize files from any web-enabled device.
CONS / You cannot manipulate PDFs from inside the application.
VERDICT / Ademero's Content Central provides a user-friendly document manager that helps you organize and store documents quickly and easily.
Ademero's document management software (DMS), Content Central, allows you to organize all of your files in one location. Receipts, contracts, digital documents of many kinds can be quickly and expertly organized in this intuitive document management application, whether you add files from external sources or scan them directly into the software. Newly scanned files are tagged, converted to every-word-searchable PDFs using optical character recognition (OCR) and sent to the appropriate storage folders.
This DMS application is especially agile at organizing large quantities of documents, but it lacks some necessary tools. While the software is web-based and saves your files to the cloud, it does not automatically back up or restore your data. It also does not support industry standard regulations, making it a poor option if you work with secure documents and your business is required to comply with certain government or certifying body record-keeping regs or standards.
If you need to create a file from scratch, the document creation templates and editor are very easy to use. For convenience and more targeted workflow, this program integrates with Microsoft applications as well as CRM or ERP systems. You also can use the application from your email or mobile device.
Once you've scanned, imported or created your files, you can sort files into categories and subcategories as well as search many different ways. However, the software does not allow you to merge or split PDFs. Instead, you must use an outside program, which adds an extra step to managing your documents.
This software has OCR capabilities, so you have full search capability. It also features version control so you can view the edits each user adds to a document. The organization options that Ademero provides are exceptionally good and compete well against the other document management solutions on our list.
Ademero is web-based and works on all operating systems. You can find a variety of support options on the company's website: phone, email, live chat, forums, manuals and tutorial videos. We found Ademero was quick to respond to our inquiries and helpful in their responses.
Ademero does an exceptional job of taking your converted paper files and digital documents and organizing them into one library. It features extensive management tools that help you organize massive amounts of documents. While it lacks a few convenience features that would make it more user-friendly, its numerous support options help you learn how to use the software with ease.
