Digital Transformation: Go Fully Paperless with 'Scan To Zero'

Do you have piles—or roomfuls—of disorganized, yet important, papers lingering around your office? 

If so, maybe you also have a newly hired and overly ambitious office manager, and maybe one day, she decides to clear the clutter and (thinking it's a good thing) tosses out a bunch of seemingly "worthless paper?"

She didn't know that old dusty pile of files from the 90's was important...and you didn't have time to tell her before she made an irretrievable mistake (barring a desperate trip to the local dump!) Finding a new office manager will be the least of your problems!

It truly is a new industrial revolution...

The Future of Business (and Society) Is Forming in the Clouds

Large, multi-purpose business application suites are on their way out, and honestly, that’s not a very bold statement. The true needs of business vary immensely. Very similar companies may do things very differently. Even in the same company, different business units usually need vastly different tools and capabilities to support their role. And as business conditions change, tools and capabilities need to be adjusted or changed. 

Cloud provides instant adjustment, customization, and scalability at the click of a button. Swap out one SAAS for another! Never before have the capabilities of a business been so open to interpretation and experimentation. The “cloud” might as well be called a “canvas.”
