Wow, been really two weeks since I last blogged.
Been REALLY busy lately with a few new projects, so my blogging is behind. I’ve also changed how often I’ll blog my content and some of my blogging is moving in another direction. Having said that, here’s my latest post.
My wife is in real estate and her real estate office is moving toward digitizing their real estate paperwork and files. Some offices are still in the “paper world” and won’t use technology, or at least, may just have a fax as their main move toward technology. So until offices get on board with standardizing their digital processes, there’s this gap between the technology have and have nots.
Sending a fax to my wife’s office creates a fax and sends it by email as a PDF to her email Inbox. Because her office is digitizing the files, she gets any number of faxes and PDF files that have multiple documents in each PDF file that need to be split out for her to upload to their document server, i.e. separate out each document so you know if all of the required documents are there to process. It’s hard to determine this when the PDF is one long file.
While her office fax internal processes are better than most offices, it’s still a pain for her to “manually” separate each one. Until I found a simpler process, she use to have to reprint out each PDF document, scan each document separately into their system, then send each document so that each could be uploaded into their document server.
Not any more!
