January 2020 Tech Talk for Government

Is it just me, or does anyone else think of “20-20” vision when they say “2020”? With not only a fresh year ahead but an entirely new decade, I want to ensure my vision for the future is clear and my hindsight is truly 20-20. Sometimes, though, that proves difficult. I don’t know about you, but my crystal ball occasionally goes haywire and the future is not anything like I had planned. And in the realm of fast-paced technology, that’s true more often than not. Just when you think you’ve solved for one pain point – bam! Here’s your next ...

Dr. John Snow is the most famous person you have never heard of.

January 2020 Tech Talk for Insurers

Is it just me, or does anyone else think of “20-20” vision when they say “2020”? With not only a fresh year ahead but an entirely new decade, I want to ensure my vision for the future is clear and my hindsight is truly 20-20. Sometimes, though, that proves difficult.

Initially, this blog was going to be opened by quoting the numerous dry-humored 2020 internet memes floating about, such as “We are not Barbara Walters, but this is 2020,” but we figured that’s too expected of us. You’re welcome. In all truthfulness, though, it is the year 2020. Sounds like the Jetsons should be flying in any minute, right? Which means we need to have an honest talk about some of the processes we’re keeping around.

The Value of a Signature Solution. eSignature, That Is.

Authored by Paul Gorman, ImageSoft Account Executive There are not many IT activities as pointless as making a process ‘paperless’ and then, at the end of the process, still printing a document so that you can get a wet signature on the paper.

The Decade Challenge: ImageSoft Style

Authored by Dave Hawkins, ImageSoft CEO As we countdown to 2020, social media is aglow with people posting pictures of what they looked like a decade ago. When I think of where ImageSoft was in 2009, we’ve certainly come a long way. It was around that time that our President, Scott Bade, had the visionary idea of building an eFiling product for courts, just as others were offering similar technology for taxpayers. It was a relatively new concept for the justice system back then and, in the intervening years, ImageSoft has emerged as one of the premier providers. We have ...
