I’m really into technology and making it easier for clients to deal with me. One of the ways I do this is by going paperless. Now what I have noticed is that going paperless has meant I seem to have way more paper then I ever did before!
Way more paper? Well, that’s mainly to do with shredding everything I receive after I’ve scanned documents into my computer system. Over the years, for my own I paper I scan and shred right away, but for clients I give them back the documents that I needed to complete their work.
I’ve tried many scanners and the best one I have ever had is the Fujitsu ScanSnap. I have now been using them for over ten years and never had a problem. They are built for document scanning and I have noticed that now Shoppers Drug Mart uses them for prescriptions. One is always on my desk to scan anything I receive.
Now, you may be asking “but how does that help me when I don’t own a scanner?” Over the years I have upgraded to new models that are faster, have new features and so on, but the old one always ends up in my trunk so if I’m at a client I can scan anything I need right away and I don’t have to take anything away. Below you can see the scanner in my trunk and also set up at a clients so I can get the information I need.
