A document management platform for the future
FileHound is an intelligent, browser based, electronic document management, workflow automation and data discovery platform. With our lightweight browser client FileHound is completely platform independent allowing you to choose from a fully managed software solution in the cloud to an on-premise solution supported by your own hardware.
The FileHound eco system supported by the team that designed and developed the platform has the ability to enhance business of all sizes on their digital transformation journeys. Our team of business technology consultants, solutions architects and software developers are passionate about making a difference with technology.
Being platform-independent, FileHound is not tied to any device or any location. Total access to the system is available from a modern browser anywhere and at any time. We fully manage and support on the back-end so you can focus on using FileHound to enhance your business.
Utilising the browser as the client FileHound in the cloud offers a zero touch deployment approach. This reduction in deployment costs can then be focussed on building a configuration, training and on-boarding package tailored just for your business.
Businesses of all sizes and industries have to comply with regulations regarding data storage and management, particularly since the GDPR coming into force in 2018. FileHound can be implemented to assist as part of a multi-step approach to legislation compliance.
Our uncomplicated user interface is easy to adopt, manage and embed within your existing and new business processes – conforming to the standards our users are already familiar with when accessing applications on the web.
