Filedrop is awesome! I'm using it to upload a lot of Storyboard frames in a spreadsheet. This app greatly reduces the time to do that. I had some questions about the features of the app and the team responded very attentively and professionally. I love it. Thank you!

We manufacture industrial mixers, we are trying to reduce the amount of paperwork laying around in the workshop. It is working great for us. Took me quiet a bit of research before I came across you guys. Maybe you need to advertise somewhere because it’s a great program you have.
