WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 4, 2013) - etfile, a premier workflow and document management solutions provider, today declares freedom from paper with the launch of OfficeScope. The new cloud-based document management solution improves upon current market offerings by enabling instant storage of any document -- or email -- to the cloud, associating information with existing contact lists or embedded barcodes and providing full analytics reports on access and revisions. Small to mid-sized businesses can declare their independence from paper with a free trial from OfficeScope at: www.officescope.com/pricing-editions.html
According to Reduce.org, North Americans consume more paper per capita -- upwards of an estimated 500 pounds annually and the average office worker uses approximately 10,000 pieces of paper. According to Mark Linton, president at etfile and the 2013 Boston Business Journal/Mass High Tech CIO of the Year Award winner, one of reasons for this enormous paper consumption is a lack of cloud-based, document management solutions specifically tailored for small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs).
"Many companies have attempted to use cloud-based storage systems, but find they lack strong integration with existing word processing and email solutions or the flexibility to associate and retrieve all documents based on different criteria," Linton said. "We have developed OfficeScope to be a natural extension of the way businesses use Google Docs, SalesForce, Microsoft Office or any other popular business applications, to offer a 'one click' document filing and retrieval system, coupled with power encryption and rich reporting features."
etfile developed OfficeScope from over a decade of experience helping insurance agencies -- among the most document-intensive industries -- streamline their workflow processes. The new offering combines enterprise-level document management features with the scalability and simplicity of the cloud, to offer SMBs an affordable means to manage paperwork.
Additional OfficeScope features include:
- Contact Connect: An intuitive method for filing and retrieval of any information. Contact Connect allows documents to be searched by contact names as well as folders and key words, while bringing powerful Content Resource Management (CRM) functionality and tagged descriptions to further accelerate quick sorting of documents.
- ScanCloud: Offers advanced scanning solutions such as barcoding, zonal Optical Character Recognition (OCR) as well as mobile and front-end methods to help businesses streamline paper-filing and transition any document into digital format.
- Advanced Security and Analytics: Eliminates security complications associated with cloud-based document management via geo-replication and redundancy, user and departmental security permissions as well as full document audit reporting. In addition, 245-bit AES storage encryption eliminates the concern for unauthorized access.
"I've used on-line file storage and other web-based, document management offerings and found them difficult to integrate into my current office procedures -- there was always something lacking or extra steps to perform," said Russell Greenwald, IT Director at InSource Services. "OfficeScope addresses these issues by seamlessly integrating into my current office environment to provide me with enhanced file management and the needed document security to ensure sensitive information is protected."
OfficeScope is currently available as a free trial. To deploy OfficeScope for your business for a paperless office, contact 888-672-7737 or visit www.officescope.com.
