Make the Move Towards PaperLESS™!

Help! We’re Drowning in Paper!


If you’ve been in business for a while, you probably have thousands of dollars sunk into paper, folders, cabinets and space to store them. The cost of that mountain of dusty paper never stops growing. Protecting and storing paper files is expensive…and recovering them in the event of a fire, flood or other disaster? Probably impossible.

River Run’s Application Services Group can help you implement a document management system that preserves your important documents electronically, making them easier to access and less expensive to maintain. You may never be able to eliminate paper entirely, but you can have significantly less of it and be able to access it more efficiently.

The core of the PaperLESS™ Office concept is that your primary file in every matter is a complete, well-organized, up-to-the-minute electronic file containing everything about that matter or client, whether sent or received, created or copied, in one easy to manage and (ideally) remotely accessible location.
