Time is money, especially for financial professionals. That's why we've created FileThis that fetches and organizes your client's bank statements, tax related documents like 1099s or W-2s, bills and online documents in a cloud based digital filing cabinet for them. All automatically. Every statement, every month. It also organizes and names files consistently, making access to tax-related or finance documents a snap.

Now you can access your client's files when they are ready, obtain multiple client statements at once, pre-schedule work levels across your firm, and know when documents will arrive.

How secure is FileThis?
“We are committed to the highest standards in how we handle your data, your privacy, and the security of our systems.”Brian Berson, CEO and Founder of FileThis
Our service fetches, organizes, and delivers your client's documents. Only your client can enter the credentials to their accounts. FileThis doesn't display any account credentials. We’ve adopted the same security standards used by FDIC-insured banks. This includes encrypting documents and data with the 256-bit AES standard, encrypting connections with 256-bit SSL, and locating our servers in physically patrolled data facilities in the U.S.
