Last month Benubird Pro was mentioned in The Financial Review. It’s a paid subscription service so we can’t share the entire article with you, but here’s what the writer, Peter Moon, had to say about Benubird Pro specifically:
Take document properties, for instance. A team that learns what they are and uses them carefully can turn a Word jumble into a knowledge base. They tag files with data about authors, subjects, dates and keywords. Using a slick, inexpensive file management tool called Benubird from www.debenu.com, document properties allow a Word library to be organised, searched, arranged into virtual folders, monitored for additions and archived. But all depends on sensible use of an existing Word feature.
Peter really hit the nail on the head. Microsoft really underutilized document properties on the Windows platform. Document properties instantly make your files more intelligent, making it easier to manage them and find them in the future. Most importantly it means that you don’t have to rely a messy and out-dated folder hierarchy to organize files.
