In a recent workshop about managing digital documents, I shared with small business owners, the Pros and Cons of Digital vs. Paper Documents. One attendee commented that once he saw the list, he was more motivated than ever to move his business to a “paper-less” operation. He asked me to share the list of Pros with readers. (Author’s note: Being paper-less is more realistic than being paper-free in today’s world, but I imagine we’ll get there someday…)
In addition to being among the slickest, fastest scanners on the market, the software that drives these powerhouses makes all the difference. When it comes to maximizing those Pros of being paper-less, nothing is more crucial than software that’s intuitive, easy-to-use and simple. Like any other digital device, helping clients to incorporate a scanner into their lives and businesses (and KEEP them using it) can be a challenge. But with ScanSnap’s bundled software, they’re able to quickly transform the paper-based activities into digital habits to reap the full benefits of going paper-less! What’s got YOU stuck under the paper piles?
