Reclamation Isn’t Just About the Environment—Reclaim Your Office Space

Say Good-bye to Paper Documents - Electronic document management technology enables paper files to be scanned to a secure network server. The paper files can then be sent to off-site storage or shredded, freeing up valuable office space.
