Microsoft’s Legal and Corporate Affairs (LCA) division had a paper problem that needed a resolution. For example, the Legal Team was buried in paper records, and with strict requirements on their record-keeping process, paper was creating business bottlenecks due to the inefficiencies of physical records. The records facility was growing at a rate of 3,000 files per month, adding to the already 35,000 files in storage. Many of the files, up to two reams in length, were difficult to manage, and retrievals were creating an adverse impact on team efficiency. “Retrieving files was a lengthy and complicated process,” said Joe Do, Microsoft Program Manager for Corporate Records and Contract Automation. “Record clerks were inundated with requests for files, and records were constantly being copied and recreated to provide the Legal Team with working copies.
Foodfirst has over 4500 invoices per month coming into their business via email and hard copy. This required 4 full-time employees and 1 part-time to ensure all the data was entered into the Accredo accounting software in a timely fashion.

Since 1955 the RJ Young Company has provided businesses best of breed office equipment and innovative document solutions, all backed by their award-winning service. With a broad customer and prospect base, RJ Young deals with businesses of all shapes and sizes. To deliver market-appropriate solutions, the company offers three different enterprise content management (ECM) systems with different price points and feature sets to meet a broad range of requirements. Training technical and sales personnel on all the capture aspects of each system became an issue, and personnel were unable to be proficient in all three. They also began to run into customers that needed capture solutions to link MFPs to other ECM systems. “There was way too much for our technical folks to learn, and we were looking for a general capture product that could work with all our current systems, but also stand alone,” said Lee Rummage, Director, Image Works / RJ Young.
Stria is a fast-growing, nationwide provider of document lifecycle services. The company focuses on both conventional and mobile document imaging work.
