She helps implement Paper Tiger Document Management Software and Filing System, which she recommends based on her clients’ needs and the way that they work. She understands that every person is different and requires systems that work for them.
Over the years, we have worked with a number of clients to help them implement the Paper Tiger and get their offices and time under control! We know for sure that the software is not just for paper! In this 3-part series, I will share some of the different ways that Paper Tiger clients have used the software. Basically, anything you can number, you can Paper Tiger!
Test Tubes - University professors and other scientists use Paper Tiger to cross-reference samples. You put numbers on the test tubes. Then, Paper Tiger is used to hold the cross reference information.
Wine - Like wine? It may not be as big as this one, but you can manage your collection! You can use the keywords to track the name, type (wet, dry, red, dessert, etc.), vintage, vineyard, types of food it is best with (chicken, steak, fruit & cheese, etc.), and guest favorites.
Car Lots - If you are in any type of business that requires the changing of cars in and out of lots, Paper Tiger can help you know where each vehicle is! Towing, Rental cars, Used car lot and more! Store, VIN, year, make, model, color, etc.
Craft Supplies - Do you enjoy de-stressing by crafting? Making jewelry, stitching, knitting and more! In this example, each section of the divided box has a number. The keywords in Paper Tiger document contents such as the color name, color number, shape, brand and any pattern or item for which it has been used.
Your Thoughts - This is one of my favorites. I keep all of my random thoughts in Paper Tiger. New product ideas, speaking topics, things I have seen that I want to look into, you name it! When I am ready to start a new project, I do a search on that topic & have all of my resources right there.
