In this electronic day I don't understand why more companies have not embraced document management in our town, Burlington Ontario Canada. I know there are some who are using it, as we have installed systems and have clients using our cloud based document management service, but the majority of businesses still seem to be glued to their filing cabinets.
Document scanning has become a given technology in most offices. Once users start being able to convert files from paper to electronic form for use in e-mail, storage as records and for ease of portability the growth of electronic documents in the office mushrooms.

Leppert Business Systems is pleased to have recently completed an upgraded document management system at the chemistry department administrative offices for the University of Toronto.
Sometimes I find I could really use a portable document scanner. I have access to MFP based document scanning in the office so I can easily convert paper to electronic records and create PDF's of paper documents for e-mailing. There are times however when I really would like to have a small portable scanner that could be taken with me for travel or use at home.
