Document Management, Cutting Paper, and Saving Those Tiny Paper Cuts to Your Bottom Line

By Lane Lebahn | Aug 29, 2018 3:48:38 PM

Sometimes our potential clients think it's a little odd that my role at a copier dealership is to help our clients print fewer documents.

It's not.

Our goal is to help our clients use technology to help their business grow and to get work done more effectively and with as little friction as possible in how they use technology. Whatever product or service our client needs, that goal remains the same.

Paper Documents and Disaster, or the Problem With Betty

By Lane Lebahn | Aug 23, 2018 5:29:20 PM

One overlooked downside of an over-reliance on paper documents is that you're probably in trouble in the case of a disaster.

Many companies backup their data and think they have a disaster recovery plan.

Some companies have their documents on paper in a filing cabinet, tucked away in the corner and think “Safe! Hackers can't get me!”

Many companies don't even think about preparing for a disaster.

Everyone should.

We've all heard the expression, “What you don't know can't hurt you.”

While that might be true for our feelings (sometimes), when it's time to find your business documents so that you can get work done what you don't know is wasting your time.

Document management software will help you find your information in seconds (literally).

Everyone who works in an office has wasted time trying to find the right document.

“Oh My Gosh, I Can Find This Immediately” - A Document Management Case Study

By Lane Lebahn | Jun 14, 2018 8:30:00 AM

We've written many times about how document management can save you time retrieving documents (along with many other benefits).

“Of course we'd say that – you provide Laserfiche document management!” I'm sure many of you might think.

So don't just take our word for it!

Sheila Steffen, City Clerk for Dunkerton, Iowa, shared with us how document management from Laserfiche has made her workday as a city clerk easier.

One idea she kept coming back to was how amazing the simple ability to quickly find the information you're looking for can make your life easier.

As Sheila said, “Oh my gosh, I can find this immediately!”

A huge thank you to Sheila for taking the time to speak with us.

Manage Your Business and Your Time, Not Your Documents – Copiers, Scanning, and Workflows

By Dave Quint | Jun 12, 2018 1:50:35 PM

We all want more time.

We aren't getting it.

There are 168 hours (10,080 minutes) in every week. That's all that any of us get.

Spending any of those minutes rummaging through filing cabinets or off-site storage as you attempt to find the right document is a waste of those minutes.

The benefits of digitizing documents and transforming your business are many (read about those benefits in the blog links at the end of this post). However, sometimes it's easier to see an example rather than just reading about “this is good for you.”

The following is an example of using your copiers to digitize paper and automate workflows in action.

The following is based on real interactions and implementations with our clients.

Drowning in Emails? Here's a Quick Way to Archive Those You Might Need to Find Again

By Lane Lebahn | Mar 22, 2018 3:49:13 PM

Look at your inbox.

How many emails are in it?

If you're like most of us, you lost control of your inbox years ago and use it as a sort of knowledge repository. How often have you looked up meeting notes or tried to find a document in your inbox instead of using a document repository?

It's a little bit of a nightmare, right?

The Power of Document Management – As Illustrated in 5 Videos

By Lane Lebahn | Mar 6, 2018 2:52:48 PM

We've all lost a document before, right? 

Whether a paper file or a Word document, anyone who's worked in an office has had at least one experience of, “damn, I can't find that.”

On a personal level, that's annoying. We wasted our time looking for something that wasn't there. Then we probably had to recreate it.

That's annoying, but hardly crippling.
