The appFiles Team in Colorado

We traveled far and wide to discover ways to help you become more efficient

It has been a very exciting year for all of us here at appFiles and we hope it has been a great year for you too! With the season’s celebrations at the door we want to take this opportunity to wish you happiness and prosperity in the year to come.

A great part of our excitement is making appFiles a better, more useful tool for everyone, and we always depend on our users to help us do that. Based on all the feedback that we received during 2010 we were able to better understand the needs

of our users, as well as plan which features will be the most beneficial to add and improve.

We confirmed that document management is a fundamental need for our users, and that the tools available today fall far short of meeting those needs. I remember a time when it was easy to simply pick up a customer’s file, leaf through its contents and pick what I wanted, photocopy it and drop it in

the mail. But today, with email replacing FedEx and faxing this has become nearly impossible to do.

We believe that having the ability to easily share and manage paperwork is vital to a business running smoothly and the new Document Pack feature allows you to do just that. Pick one or more documents, add a cover page, include a header or footer on every page if needed (very useful when submitting documents that have a unified account number or ID) and email it, all in one easy step.

When you are looking at an appFile you will find the Document Pack Tool as the first link at the top of the right hand column.

Also look for the “Add New Version” button when you are viewing your documents. We wanted to make it easy to keep track of the real world changes a document goes through during its life cycle. With this feature, it’s simple to upload or scan your document after its been changed, maintaining the most current version in front for everyone to see, but at the same time, keeping older versions available for historic reference.

So, in the season best geared to giving thanks, we want to thank you, our users. Without your invaluable feedback we wouldn’t be where we are today, and we wouldn’t be so excited about the year to come.
