Now You Can Backup Your Google Docs to Your Local Drive!

Now you can backup your Google Docs to your local drive!

You can use the awesome power and convenience of Google Docs to store all of your digital files in the cloud and still have the piece of mind of having a synced copy of your files on your local hard drive!

Paper Tiger Online and Digital Tiger using Google Docs is the least expensive way to move into a document management system. Digital Tiger is an enhancement to Paper Tiger Online, that connects Paper Tiger to Google Docs, to be able to search just one place to find both their physical paper files and their digital files.

Customers can begin moving to a more paperless environment by using their Fujitsu ScanSnap software or another scanner, if they prefer, to convert their physical paper into pdf format.  The combination of Google Docs and Digital Tiger make this possible at a very low cost.  In this economy, many businesses are trying to find ways to be more efficient and save money.

Our Paper Tiger Online and Digital Tiger customers are looking for a way to make a backup copy of all their data stored in Google Docs to their local drive for safekeeping and piece of mind.  Local digital file storage is becoming very cheap with 3 TB (yes terabytes) drives selling on Amazon for as low as $123.99* recently.
