Take Back Control of Your Email

How many emails do you receive every day? 25? 50? 100? More? And how many do you write?

Often arriving in giant waves, email can be overwhelming. You get so caught up in communicating — simply doing your job — it becomes almost impossible to keep up with filing all that important information (including attachments). And you know you’re going to need to find that information… some day.

But let’s face it: who has the time for filing?

Atlantic's Document Management Solutions

Atlantic Document Management Solutions can serve a critical role in
helping businesses achieve sustainability goals and benefits by reducing or
eliminating document printing, copying, and physical routing by enabling
secure document access anytime, anywhere, from any configured device.
The cumulative economic, environmental, and workplace quality impact is
stunning:

 The costs of using paper in the office can run 13 to 31 times the cost of purchasing the paper in the
first place
 It takes more than 1½ cups of water to make one sheet of paper
 Over 40% of wood pulp goes toward the production of paper.
 Reducing paper use reduces greenhouse gases: each time 40 reams of paper preserves 1.5 acres
of pine forest absorbing carbon for a year.
 A single invoice sent through the mail has a carbon footprint of around 50g
 Domino effect – less print, less power, less toner, less water, less resources
 The average paper document is copied 9 to 11 times.
 We are approaching 4 trillion documents being stored by businesses and government agencies.
 Each four-drawer file cabinet holds an average of 10,000 to 12,000 documents, takes up to 9
square feet of floor space, and costs $1,500 per year.
 Every 12 filing cabinets require an additional employee to maintain.
 18 minutes is the average search time for a document.
 Paper in the average business grows by 22% a year, meaning your paper will double in 3.3 years.
 U.S. managers spend an average of 4 weeks a year searching for or waiting on misfiled,
mislabeled, untracked, or ‘lost’ papers”
 The costs of using paper in the office can run 13 to 31 times the cost of purchasing the paper in the
first place
 It takes more than 1½ cups of water to make one sheet of paper
 Over 40% of wood pulp goes toward the production of paper.
 Reducing paper use reduces greenhouse gases: 40 reams of paper is like 1.5 acres of pine forest absorbing carbon for a year.

The Fast, Easy Way to Store and Retrieve Your Documents; Traditional paper filing is a losing battle.

Multiple hard copies, filed under different headings in different folders. Bulky file cabinets or corrugated boxes, using up valuable floor space. Even offsite storage facilities to handle the ever-expanding volume. They all come with huge costs — not the least of which is wasted employee productivity doing all...

How to Keep Your Digital Documents Safe and Secure

In this digital information age, security threats are everywhere. You see it in the headlines, every day. So smart, proactive business owners go to great lengths to protect their IT networks from potential threats and hazards. But what about their document security?

Paper documents (that aren’t shredded) can be easily stolen, misplaced, misfiled or taken out of the trash. Unprotected digital documents (that have been saved on your network) are vulnerable to security breaches and loss, too....
Atlantic Tomorrow's Office's Patti Kanner, Managing Director can be reached at 212-507-9469 to further discuss this and any document concerns you may have!

*IMPORTANT Internet Explorer Security Issue*

  
  
  
  
  

There was a recent discovery of a security flaw in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer that has been named New Zero Day.  This exploit specifically targets the use of the flash plug in and specific flash content.  The security flaw is found in IE 6 through 11, but is specifically targeting IE 9 and higher.

Atlantic Tomorrow’s Office is recommending that you use other mainstream browsers such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome until Microsoft can resolve the issue.  If you do not currently have these browsers loaded on your desktop you can follow the instructions below to complete the installation:

To install Firefox please click here, then double click the “Free Download” icon  to complete the installation.

To install Chrome please here, then double click the “Download Chrome” icon to complete the installation.

In the event you must use Internet Explorer, there are some steps to take in IE 10 and 11 such as turning on the Enhanced Protection Mode, disabling the flash plug-in, and/or utilizing the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit. Note that these will restrict functionality in the browser.  Please click here for additional formation on the Enhanced Protection Mode toolkit, including download instructions.

Once Microsoft releases a patch to resolve the security flaw we will deploy the fix to your Internet Explorer browser and send an additional notice to advise that you can resume using IE.

How Windows XP is losing you money

  
  
  
  
  

 

Why Upgrading from XP to Windows 7 Makes Business Sense

Sponsored by: Dell, Inc. and Microsoft

The question is no longer whether a business can afford to upgrade from XP to Windows 7, it is whether a business can afford not to, and the answer is a resounding no.

With extended support of Windows XP ending in April of 2014, companies still using XP at that time will immediately open themselves up to security risk.

This whitepaper takes a look at how upgrading to a new OS reduces ongoing support expenses, and allows companies to take advantages of technologies that didn’t exist when Windows XP was deployed.
