Doc

<p>ZDNet introduces Doc (The DocuMentor), sponsored by RICOH. Through his blog, Doc will educate you about Document Management. So who is Doc? Doc is something of an enigma. He was born to a Russian ballerina and a German electrical engineer who some believe was running covert operations for shadowy corporate interests. Doc grew up in various locations in the United States, although no one seems to know precisely where, least of all Doc. His early schooling was unremarkable except for the time he was caught trying to replace all the mimeograph machines with high-tech color copiers that had mysteriously disappeared from a shipment to Albania. At MIT, he made a name for himself by transforming a large printer into a robot that hunts and eats Roombas. Professionally, he reportedly has seen the insides of more brands, versions, and generations of printer and printer-related hardware than almost anyone. Some say his obsession with paper, printing, and mechanical movement was either started by, or evidenced by, a traumatic childhood episode when he crawled inside an old Xerox 2400 and tried to print himself.</p> <p>Anyway, Doc has hands on experience with stuff like printer maintenance and fleet management, but his mastery of document management leaves no stone unturned. Important issues like sustainability, security, and regulatory compliance are top of mind for Doc, as are other business technology needs like networking and IT services, making him a true blue IT renaissance man. </p>

Sending Large Files with quanp

Sending Large Files with quanp

Doc's always sending large files to folks, and until now I've been using a special file-sending service for that purpose. But now, quanp has a drag-and-drop feature that allows quick sending of multiple large files (up to 500MB). The quanp send widget allows you to send files at any time right from your desktop, and recipients don't need to have a quanp account.

How Digital Document Storage Can Help Reduce Costs

How Digital Document Storage Can Help Reduce Costs

The Doc doesn't do drugs, but sometimes I still seek a mind-blowing experience. That's when I call on my friends at Ricoh, who can always turn me on to an unbelievable statistic about office life. Did you know, for example, that the average office worker spends up to half of their workday searching for information? Now that's a mind blower, and there's a free white paper to back it up.
