Benubird PDF is a document management software for Windows designed specifically for PDF and Office documents.
A proper document management software is not included in the Windows operating system. It does offer a basic location for all documents in the My Documents folder, or the more advanced Windows 7 Libraries but they offer, in the end, nothing more than a listing of documents.
Document management solutions on the other hand should provide additional features such as advanced search options and filters, categorizations, conversions, distribution options and more.
Benubird PDF is a document management software that unlike its name would suggest supports not only pdf documents but also other document formats such as text, Microsoft Word, Excel and image formats.
New documents can be easily added to the software program by either handpicking them, or selecting folders to import all documents they contain in one batch operation. Filters aid you in importing documents from folders; it is for instance possible to only import specific file types from selected folders.
Each document and file that is added to the program is automatically added to the library. This library contains filters to view all or only specific file types such as spreadsheets, presentations or videos.
Collections can be created as well which provides another option to sort documents. It is for example possible to create collections that contain financial or work related documents, or project specific collections.
The properties of each document can be edited to contain a title, author, subject and tags, some of which are automatically imported if meta tags exist. This helps when you search for instance.
A search is offered that makes use of the meta data of the documents. Another interesting option of the document management software is the ability to watch folders. New documents copied to watched folders are automatically added to the program's library.
Benubird PDF is a interesting document management software for the Windows operating system. The program is freely available for download at the developer's website. It is compatible with most 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems.
Update: The most recent version of the application supports additional features. You may convert documents to PDF format for instance using the program, export files as a zip archive or file folder, or use the smart collections feature which generates file lists based on rules you specify.
Please note that you need to supply a name and an email address, and verify the email address, before downloads become available on the product website.Advertisement
