Automatic Excel to JPEG Conversion in the Office

Office employees normally have to waste time converting files that come from various sources into the format they really use. To automate this process you can use Folder Mill – the software that is usually installed on server. Folder Mill will watch the incoming files and will convert them to another format according to the preferences existing with the company staff.

All the company employees will need to do is to make use of two folders and place the incoming files into one folder, and take the output files from another folder already saved in the file format they prefer. The conversion process itself will be performed automatically.
