June 2020 Tech Talk for Government

Dentist Appointments Will Resume As Usual. Public Health Processes Will Not. Vince Hanson, ImageSoft When the dentist calls to schedule my routine cleaning, I usually cringe. With so much to do in-between work and home responsibilities, lying back while someone uses high-pitched tools on my teeth isn’t exactly how I want to spend my free time. This cleaning, however, was different. I had missed my last appointment because of COVID-19 shutdowns, and most of Florida was still closed. So when the hygienist called to say they were reopening, I actually felt relief! So much so that my wife, son and ...

June 2020 Tech Talk for Courts

Am I the only one wondering how it’s already almost July? Scott Bade, ImageSoft In six short months, 2020 has certainly given us a run for our money. It seems like just yesterday I was chatting with Jim McMillan and the National Center for State Courts about hosting the “Justice Knows No Quarantine” webinar and now, thankfully, we’re seeing the world start to reopen. Amazing how quickly time passes, isn’t it? And, in the case of 2020, how quickly life can change in such a short time. So what has changed in the justice community since the last time we ...

“I Love to Climb a Mountain and Reach the Highest Peak”

But it doesn’t thrill us half as much as talking feet-to-feet. With summer finally upon us and the Coronavirus pandemic scaling back, so many of us are thrilled to be able to, again, hug our loved ones, BBQ in small gatherings and head back into the world. Maybe you’ll even find yourself dancing cheek-to-cheek! While the woods may be clearing, you’re probably noticing that business-as-usual is still not actually resuming as usual. Restaurants and retails stores are still taking social-distancing precautions and setting up sanitation stations. Many organizations, even with the green light to re-open office spaces, are continuing remote ...

May 2020 Tech Talk for Government

James Leneschmidt, CTO, ImageSoft It’s been said that I have a voice for silent movies. It must be true because, somehow, my friends always “forget” to invite me to karaoke night. In the last couple months, though, karaoke night has been forgone in lieu of remote hangouts through platforms like Zoom. Suddenly, all my friends are curious about expanding their mobile skillsets and adopting new technologies to stay in touch with one another. While their enthusiasm over it sings right into my inner being, I’ve promised to only speak on the matters – no musical vocals allowed. I’ll keep my ...

May 2020 Tech Talk for Courts

It’s May, and Mobility is Blossoming!  Steve Glisky, Vice President, ImageSoft I was out for a walk with my kids the other day, enjoying the Michigan Spring, and thinking to myself how ironic it is that now, when most of us are home more than ever, mobility is blossoming. Before the Coronavirus pandemic, remote access to case files, electronic signatures, digital evidence management and online dispute resolutions were perks. If the Judge wanted to sign orders from his home office, he could look into the option, but it wasn’t something he needed or, maybe, even wanted. Today, however, mobility is ...

Piecemealed Homemaking: How To Secure Housing for You and Your Data

Authored by Katie, Communications Specialist at ImageSoft Looking at my newly renovated, shabby-chic farmhouse bedroom makes my heart happy – but my head? Oh, it aches. Any visitor can tell you I stitched this room together with too many Etsy orders and plenty of time at home during quarantine. What you wouldn’t know by looking at my room, however, is that most of these renovations were born out of several, less-than-graceful mishaps. While I cringe thinking back on this moment, let’s rewind to a few months ago when my boyfriend had a touch of the flu. For context, everyone affectionately ...

May 2020 Tech Talk for Insurers

Toni Smith, ImageSoft I’m so excited to share with you all that, just in time for Mother’s Day, I became a grandma again! And even better, it’s my first granddaughter. Having several grandsons already, this is a game-changer! Even though my family is ecstatic, we can’t celebrate this joyful moment in our usual ways. In normal times, I’d have cradled my sweet granddaughter several times over by now. But, until everyone gets the Doc’s “okay,” we’re limiting our gushes to photos and FaceTimes. Carrying on with my own life in this “new normal” made me think about how all relationships, ...

Forms – How a Good Idea Became a Disastrous Concept

Authored by Paul Gorman, ImageSoft Account Executive I read a recent statement issued by Florida’s Department of Transportation (FDOT) saying that, in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, it is leading the coordination of DOH and the Florida Highway Patrol to implement Executive Order 20-86. As a result, more than 8,000 traveler forms have been collected at the I-10 and I-95 checkpoints. The statement went on to say that FDOT is also coordinating with public use airports, DOH and law enforcement, and has already collected more than 15,600 traveler forms at public use airports across the state. That, ...

The Socially Distant #ImageSoftLife

Hey, friends! For those of you who follow us on LinkedIn and Facebook, you know we take our commitment to fun very seriously. But, just like everyone else, #ImageSoftLife has looked quite different since practicing social distance. For 25 years, we’ve been razzing one another with playful banter across the office, swapping family pictures with our colleagues and customers at community events and, most importantly, sharing meals during our frequent in-office showers and book club meetings. If you follow our monthly “Images of Us” staff spotlight series, you will often share in someone’s recollection of their favorite (usually hysterical) #ImageSoftLife ...
