First Coast recently asked me to speak to clients and media about the legalities of shifting to a paper-less (or even paper-free) workflow. This is something I am passionate about and I have developed a paper-less over the years so I was excited about this talk.

It turned out that First Coast distributes the Avision scanner range which includes models which are rebranded as Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners. I talked about my ScanSnap scanner in my talk and it is easily one of the most valuable devices in my office to me.
