Disaster strikes

Laserfiche Missouri tornado damage

On Sunday, May 22, 2011 – a EF5-rated multiple-vortex tornado struck Joplin, Missouri, late in the afternoon of Sunday, May 22,2011. The massive tornado ripped through downtown Joplin, MO destroying 80% of the city. Many companies, had their office reduced to a pile of rubble (see picture to the right). Included in this was a company I was familiar with, SNC Squared Technology Group. Fortunately, all their employees and family are all okay. However, they are faced with a massive cleanup effort. And, they needed to help 20 of their medical clients (all physician’s offices) to get back up and running quickly.
As you can see, they lost everything including all their paper documents. Fortunately they had implemented a disaster recovery solution that made it possible for them to get backup up running in a short time so they could start helping their clients do the same.

Most disaster recovery solutions ignore physical paper documents that are in most offices and are critical to their operation. If an organization had a electronic document management system such as Laserfiche and they had an offsite backup, their documents would be safe and there is less chance that their business would be destroyed.
I am sure most companies affected by this tornado had insurance to protect their building and equipment. Laserfiche could be your insurance for your critical paper documents. Very seldom does any one consider “what is the ROI on my business insurance”. The same should apply to a document management system. But, from time to time people ask me, “what is the ROI for Laserfiche?” If the picture above was your business, the ROI of Laserfiche document management software would be a no-brainer.

DIY Paperless Solution For CAP Agencies

CAP go paperlessI have talked to several IT staff from community action agencies who have set up their own paperless solution for their CAP agency.  They scan their important documents as PDF’s and store them on their server.

 

This sounds like a good – cheap way to handle their documents but there is one thing they didn’t realize.  They have just made their documents susceptible to being compromised.

These documents can easily be destroyed by hackers.  If this sounds far-fetched or you think it can’t happen to you – then you need to read this.  http://hemingwaysolutions.net/inexpensive-paperless-solution-for-community-action-agencies-or-is-it/

Going paperless must benefit you

what benefit for me going paperlessIf you are looking at paperless solutions, it is sometimes frustrating because vendors often talk about all the cool features they have.  But, you don’t care – you are more interested in what are the benefits to me and my organization.

 

I was able to talk to a number of Laserfiche users and asked them what the benefits of going paperless were for them.  You can read the article here.
