  • FileThis

    Freemium Web Website

    Fulfilling the promise of paperless.

    We live in a digital age where more and more of what we do is done digitally. So why are our most important documents living in the past!

    FileThis was started by a group of people who believe in all the benefits of a paperless home. We’re not talking about absolutely everything – well, not just yet anyway. Lets start with our most important documents – bills, statements, insurance policies, health documents, and on and on. The kinds of documents you would want to file somewhere safe. Having them in digital form has so many benefits. Like what, you ask? Well, how’s this for starters:

    reduces paper clutter
    easier to search and find
    easier to store and manage
    easier to share, where appropriate

    But none of us want to spend our weekend organizing and managing documents.

    So our goal at FileThis is to create your own personal digital assistant. Someone (or thing) that can go out and fetch your documents, file them and find them. Someone you can just turn to and say “File This”. And all of this to help you keep your documents up-to-date, organized, and most importantly, extremely easy to find when you need something.

You've got a great list there. While we are on the topic of automation tools, I really appreciate what AI-powered chatbots bring to the table. I am fascinated by the mere applications it has with respect to majority of businesses out there. Now, there are many good platforms, but I use Engati because it is a no-code chatbot platform. I have no coding experience whatsoever, and yet, I get to leverage this platform to build a chatbot for myself. It is pretty amazing if you ask me.
