Who’d blame you if you don’t scan everything? We all know scanning’s a chore. Scanners have been around forever, but most offices still don’t use them. Why? Well, for one thing, no-one thinks of a scanner as fast. Even now, you’re visualizing a bulb dragging slooowly across a sheet of paper.

Protect cloud information data concept. Security and safety of cloud computing.

Most professionals that have been in business for the last 10+ years remember when sharing a file was a time consuming process. Sharing a file meant burning to a CD, floppy disk or even printing out the file and sending via snail mail or hand delivery.

As we watch the way our user base puts FileCenter to work, it’s no surprise to us to see how document-intensive many of your businesses are.
