FileCenter Review: Powerful File & Document Management Software

Posted by Rahul Gupta
To be frank, I’m irritated of managing all these files and documents in a proper manner. So I stopped doing it, and now it’s all messy, and I can’t find one file correctly. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this problem, and for people like us, it’s no less than a boon. The solution is File management software or tools for Windows-powered devices and today we’re reviewing FileCenter.
FileCenter Review
For all those who don’t know, FileCenter or any file manager is a standard document management solution mainly developed and intended for small and medium businesses who are in need of a well-organized file managing system without comprising with the workload. It helps the administrator staff to manage all the records and documents. However, File Center is more than just a standard file management system. So let’s see what all other smart features that this software includes.

Getting Started

FileCenter is specially crafted for laptop and desktop devices only. The tool is very compatible and has very minimal system requirements and runs on systems with Windows XP or newer operating systems, a 750 MHz CPU and only 500 Mb of RAM. It also has pro feature of scanning documents, so it obviously needs a physical Scanner device. FileCenter also offers Cloud Storage facilities using third party services. To be precise, you can scan and save all of your files, documents, PDFs directly on to Cloud like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

FileCenter by Lucion comes in handy, and the application is very easy to install and integrate with your system full of messed up files and documents. Though it is a premium software, the company offers a 15-day trial version for all the users. You can download the free trial from its official website. Remember, it only glimpses you with the essential and not the full features.

The clean and well-designed interface makes it easy to identify all the files stored on your device and then arrange all the files in a systematic manner. Moreover, the software allows you to tag, assign, sort and categorize your files, data as well your paper documents and file records. 

The main strength of FileCenter relies on its proper management capabilities. Since all of you know that how desperate it becomes to manage both e-documents and paper files, therefore FileCenter wants you to go paperless by saving and backing up all your corporate files, documents and other necessary papers via scanning them and upload them to the cloud.


Right after installing the software, File Center becomes your buddy with its friendly interface and setup. The dashboard greets you with a complex but arranged file manager, from where you can directly search the document, file or any other record. All the features and functionalities offered by the software are listed as buttons in the Tool Bar. 
Scan Paper Document
Being a professional corporate tool, it can scan and save paper documents and files directly using the scan option. It comes handy and makes reduces your headache of finding the necessary document in need of an emergency. Just search your device using this tool and voila. All the paper files are saved into standard PDF file format; therefore, no issues would arise in using them for further proceedings.

Scan Paper Documents & OCR Feature

Not only this, File Center has OCR (Optical Character Recognition) capabilities that can scan the document and convert the whole document into a searchable text. This feature always comes in handy when you don’t remember the filed document’s location, and want to run a full-text search. Apart from scanning, you are also entitled to edit or copyright the document for other purposes as well. Pretty Cool! Isn’t it?
