Mustang Any discount on the Pro or Pro Plus?
Apr 17 at 5:32am Copy Link
Jeff User Yes, Pro and Pro Plus are half price too with this promotion.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 17 at 6:04am Copy Link
Mustang Is there a link that shows which OCR engine is included with each version? Your website references both the ReadIris and OmniPage OCR engines in the Pro Plus version so would like some clarification.
Apr 17 at 7:45am Copy Link
Jeff User Pro Plus includes Readiris. Pro includes Tesseract.

Joe McCormick Does the license allow for installation on more then one computer?
Apr 17 at 10:29am Copy Link
Jeff User No. The license is for just one computer.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 17 at 10:40am Copy Link
disenchanted Will there be any multi-license bundles, such as a "family pack" ?

Something that is good for installation on, [example] 2-4 PC's ?

Jeff User We typically offer multi-user discounts on our regular pricing, but it won't be as good as this half-price promotion. So your better deal is to buy as many licenses as you need at half off.

Wade Townsend Thank you so much for bringing this promotion to BDJ!! We have waited a long time for this as we have been inquiring and suggesting since 2011 - well worth the wait for such an excellent program... Now I can finally get my documents moved from the very much outdated Nuance PaperPort Pro that has not been updated since 2013.

Please tell me, which version works best and is most compatible with the NEAT Desktop Scanner and Desktop Software since they have discontinued their desktop software as I will not use their Cloud subscription?

In addition will file Center be able to read my NEAT Desktop software database file?
Apr 17 at 11:17pm Copy Link
Peter Gabriel I agree with Wade, this is the software I've been waiting for. Thank you BDJ and Lucion!

Jeff User To scan with FileCenter, your scanner needs to have a TWAIN driver. This is the same for all editions of FileCenter. That said, the TWAIN driver implementation (which the scanner maker controls) for the NEAT Desktop Scanner is not the best, but most of our users can still get it to work with FileCenter. Also, FileCenter works with and displays native file formats (like Windows Explorer). So you'll need to export your files out of the NEAT Desktop Software if they are being stored in NEAT's proprietary database format.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 18 at 5:37am Copy Link
Jeff User FileCenter itself is only in English. But since it sits on top of your Windows file system and displays files like Windows Explorer, all file names will be retained in what ever language. FileCenter also integrates with Windows Search, but it must be turned on and setup to index the applicable data.

JM In case I purchase, what happens if I don't pay for the annual maintenance fee ($19.95 for std) the following year?
Apr 19 at 4:04pm Copy Link
Jeff User Remember, one year of maintenance comes with your initial purchase. After that it is optional, your choice. Your product will continue to work either way. Staying on maintenance is highly recommended since it gives you free support and product updates after the first year. What’s more is that in the crazy computer environment of today more things than you realize get affected by the constant Windows updates that come out, especially software like FileCenter that sits on top of the Windows file system. Being on the latest build of FileCenter ensures that it will perform as it should. Again, the product will continue to work either way. You just won't have access to the latest build or support if you don't stay on maintenance.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 19 at 4:20pm Copy Link
Harald Vogel Hi, I also have a question on maintenance: After one year do I have to pay once a year to keep it or could I go back on it any time?

Or do you also have an upgrade price if I'm not on maintanace and want to upgrade to the lastest version?

Problem is I'm a private user and would go for Pro with this promotion here but the yearly costs for it are not affortable for me.

Apr 20 at 4:43am Copy Link
Jeff User If you ever go off of maintenance, then you'd have to pay an upgrade fee for newer builds of the software. The upgrade fee is double the maintenance fee.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 20 at 5:21am Copy Link
Jorge Watanabe Hi, I have an old version (8). Can I have a discount in upgrade to 10?
Apr 20 at 5:29am Copy Link
Jeff User This half off promotion will be your best deal.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 20 at 6:05am Copy Link
Harald Vogel Thanks. That would mean upgrading would cost more than todays promotion.

I watched some (older) Videos from your library and it seems you use Trackers PDF-Xchange Editor. It's my prefered Editor also and I have a Plus license.

Has the current Filecenter the latest PDF-Xchange Editor intergrated and could I somehow use or integrate my PDFxE-Plus Version in Filecenter Standard as most features of Filecenter Pro I'm interested in come from Trackers Editor?
Apr 20 at 6:18am Copy Link
Craig S. If I already own a copy of ReadIris, will the Basic and/or Pro versions take advantage of it? Thanks.
Apr 20 at 7:34am Copy Link
Jeff User Yes, FileCenter uses the Tracker PDF editor and we do try to keep their latest version in FileCenter.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 20 at 7:34am Copy Link
Jeff User Sorry, only FileCenter Pro Plus can use ReadIris.
Lucion Technologies - Apr 20 at 7:37am Copy Link
Wade Townsend @Jeff User: So just purchased and installed the standard version of File Center as I am just a single user.

In an earlier inquiry I asked about how to get my NEAT database files converted over to File Center. In your response you stated to Export the files so does this mean they have to be exported individually or is there a way to export them in bulk by say the folders they were saved in?

Also can I drag and drop my old PaperPort files directly into File Center that are in the My Documents folder or will I need to build a file structure 1st?

Many thanks.
Apr 20 at 12:53pm Copy Link
Jeff User Your export options are going to depend on the NEAT software where your files and data currently reside. So I'd check that software to find your options. FileCenter needs the data to reside in a normal Windows folder. For further questions as a registered user, you should send an email to

Joe McCormick I have been using the File Center Pro 10 for about a year and a half. This is a great replacement for the unsupported PaperPort that has not been updated in the last few years and will never be updated in the future.

Today, I purchased the FileCenter 10 Standard for my laptop. I do not need the advanced feature that the Pro Plus version has. If I need these features I will use my main desktop computer that has the Pro version. I find that the basic has what I need. I will mainly use it for file viewing. I find that it will view PDF, TXT, JPG, and WordPerfect files.

Lucion keeps the program updated and has excellent tech support. Today's deal is a great deal on this software.

Techtoysavvy I just purchased the Pro version.
I have the Fujitsu ScanSnap which includes its own OCR

Does the Pro version include automated scanning with separators?

It looked to me like the main improvement and higher cost in Pro Plus was related to licensing Readiris OCR and I have ABBYY and other OCR engines already and I have no idea if Readiris is an improvement.

For me recognizing specialized formats like receipts and bank statements is important in addition to competent OCR.

I need to find a replacement for my Neat system as their future is uncertain and their software is lacking.
Apr 20 at 8:07pm Copy Link
Jeff User FileCenter does have a special integration with ScanSnap scanners. See the User Guide. Yes, the Pro version includes separators.
