I Thought Everyone Had a DMS

I'm always surprised to hear about firms who are not operating with a document management system (DMS). And no.. Box, Dropbox, Google-Drive.. are not document management systems - they are file storage platforms. PS: if have have more than 2500 electronic documents, you need a document management system and I'll be glad to discuss with you, the reasons why.

Thanks to Doug Striker for this informative article about deploying a document management system. For those operating without a DMS, the article will give you a good feel for the deployment effort. And yes indeed, a successful deployment will include good training.

Must Read Articles

It started with the introduction of the fax machine in the late 80s, and ever since, the lag between client inquiry and provider response has been shrinking.

Enter the text message, and the impulse to text an answer back to the client. Doubt this is happening in your firm? Just ask.

Thanks to Gerald H. Schreiber, CPA, and Adam Junkroski, Lead Manager-Tax Communications, American Institute of CPAs for this insightful article about use of text messaging by CPAs. My take-away: text messages tend to be concise.. professional advice needs to be thorough.
