Standalone proxy converter

I'd like Adobe could implement a standalone free proxy converter for Premiere Pro, like Blackmagic has it.
My workflow depends a lot of proxies, since my files are always starting from 4k to higher res and I work a lot with heavy files.
Here is my editing workflow. The raw footage cames from outside on cards, I ingest these cards to a NAS and convert proxies using a server computer. This proxies goes to a folder on the server that mirrors de NAS structure folder.
Editors then inport raw footage and attach the proxies from that especific folder.
The server does this 24/7, avoiding the loss of time from editors to do this manually every time they import footage.
I would like to see some standalone tool from Adobe that could make this convertions, appending the _Proxy to file names and producing theses files already with proxy markers.

Are you familiar with using MediaEncoder especially with watched folders?

Yeah, Neil. I'm familiar with Media Encoder but seems Watch Folder doesn't work like I said. It only watches files in a specific folder and converts all of them toghether into another folder..
What I need is a converter that watches the hole folder and subfolder structures and replicates in another place, mantaining this hole structure but copying the converted files with "_Proxy" in file names and the same proxy watermark Media Encoder prints in converted files, instead the originals.
Thanks for the reply.
