Creating a Paperless Workplace

09-22-2016

At 8am, it was our 15th installment of #TechThursday with Nick Paras, CEO of Alpha Computing Solutions. The discussion today hinged on becoming a paperless office – moving towards digital solutions. There are many options available and adequate research needs to be done before making the move but Nick and his team specialize in this service and help guide you through the transition. Software solutions such as SharePoint are discussed and Nick elaborates on how these document management solutions are superior to basic network storage and windows search functions to locate them. It is critical to have a cloud-based location to protect against disasters in office and have redundancy in your backups as well as the ability to reach documents from anywhere. Backups are handled by the provider too with cloud based solutions, another key benefit. Nick talks about scanner options and recommends as does Jamie the Fujitsu Scan Snap scanner for best results. It has a great compression result and the clarity of the document is retained even at low settings. This enables Adobe to create a searchable document by implementing that option and then you can store a scanned document in the cloud that is also searchable by words within the document. Other options discussed were the Neat Desk Scanner and all in one printer/scanner options but the consensus was to settle on the Fujitsu Scan Snap model, available for around $400. To go paperless, Nick shares with us some tips which hinges on commitment to the conversion, don’t run parallel systems, commit and execute to one solution. Follow that by focusing on document management and ensure that multiple backups are in place. Rally your team and be sure that you scan and file everything that comes in the door. Be mindful of regulation too depending on your industry. If your office is a paperwork mess, reach out to Nick today to begin planning.

At 8:30, we welcomed Carole Gill, Founder of CRG Coaching Partners. Carole is a professional speaker, management consultant, and executive coach who brings practical experience from a successful career in corporate America and more than 20 years of consulting experience. Known as an attitude expert and people developer, she takes a dynamic approach turning best practice theory into reality, enabling individuals to become more effective leaders, communicators, collaborators and team builders. With a corporate background in Human Resources, Carole shares with us how she transitioned from that role into a team building role and then found coaching which was her true passion. For years, affected by a job downgrade, she became pessimistic and unhappy with her work environment. Not until a chance conversation with a co-worker enlightened her that she had the power to leave did she realize she had control over her life. From that moment on she pursued a path in entrepreneurism and today, some 20 years later has helped countless individuals and teams achieve results through her coaching solutions. While her business is primarily business coaching, she does delve into life coaching too saying that effective results can only be achieved when you look at yourself as a whole.
