Sohodox

Editors' Review

by   / June 15, 2010

Small businesses frequently must choose between "enterprise" (pronounced "expensive") solutions and personal software that just isn't up to the job. ITAZ Sohodox is a document management application specifically tailored for the small office, but it has many uses outside the workplace, since it creates a centralized, searchable, multiuser database of all your documents. Sohodox works with any TWAIN-compatible scanner and saves documents in a wide range of formats, including PDF and TIFF. It even has OCR capabilities.

Sohodox has single-user and client installation options; we tested the single-user installation. The interface resembles Microsoft's Outlook and similar e-mail clients, only with a unique tabbed toolbar: the Home tab contains labeled icons for basic controls, and the Tools tab accesses settings and other functions. The Help document is displayed when you first open Sohodox; it contains a link to helpful video tutorials. The program is quite easy to use, though, with pop-up dialogs for settings and operation. The Multi-User Data Base has automatic configuration options for various profiles. We especially like the ease with which the Template Manager lets you create and modify document templates by simply browsing to any example.

Sohodox isn't cheap, but it's certainly affordable, and its ability to bring order to the chaos of the typical small office makes it an excellent value. It combines a flexible document manager and database with useful extras like annotation, fax and e-mail, and password protection. However, it's Sohodox's multiuser document storage and retrieval capabilities that set it apart and earn our recommendation.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Sohodox 6.1.0.5 . The trial is limited to 30 days of use.
