CURSOS ON-LINE - INGLS BNDES 2011 PROFESSOR CARLOS AUGUSTO AULA 5 TEXT 1: UPGRADE TO A PAPER-FREE OFFICE Anyone who

has ever worked in an office remembers giant filing cabinets filled to the brim with paper documents. Modern companies are taking steps to eliminate this mess. With our daily and office lives becoming more and more digitized, the natural next step for these clusters of paper lies in the computer. Document scanning makes all your important records just a click away. The right option What should you look for when choosing a computer company? Customer Service - if possible, talk to someone at the company to analyze the level of help they are willing to give in set up, etc Ease of Use - find out if the scanned documents are software specific or nonproprietary format Options - determine which document storage routine is best for you. While online access will work for some, others might prefer in-house storage Maintenance - how involved is the company willing to be with repairs and upgrades in the future Where to keep your documents There are several types of document storage one can take advantage of. Its important to research each one and determine which is best for you, so you can get the most out of your document storage experience. Different methods are going to work for different companies. There are several options out there for paperless filing, such as compact disc storage, web-accessible document storage, jukebox raid storage devices, COLD (Computer Output to Laser Disk) / ERM (Enterprise Report Management) applications, and microfilm. Below, we'll take a closer look at the first two types, their benefits and drawbacks. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which method is best for your needs. Compact disc storage The most simple, and usually least expensive, method is document conversion to compact disc. Depending on where you go, you'll find different types of compact discs offered. Make sure to get a compact disc that is compatible with all CD-Rom drives. Compact discs are perishable and easily misplaced. Its a good idea to copy all the files directly into a hard drive or two, so you can be sure to have back up.
