Document management is a huge headache for most companies, employees, and individuals.
I've always had a love for all things simple in my life, and remember being very young and trying to convince my parents that they needed to scan all their receipts into their computer for simple filing.
Let's just say it didn't take well.
Fast forward to today, and I myself operate my business on very little physical paper.
All my documents exist as a PDF vs. materials chopped from a tree.
The only difficulty becomes the operation of managing all these loose, digital documents. I've decided to start reviewing various document management software, in an effort to find the best.

So why Document Management?
If you're like me, life can become very hectic.
One minute you're trying to balance a budget, and the next, you're running out the door to do some errrands. Document management often gets thrown to the side in the mix.
I've found that if something is simple and easy to use, then it's going to be used.
This is why I've decided to try Ademero.
Upon reaching out to the company, they're very willing to let small to large business test their document and workflow solutions to find the best fit.
