Will the Government Bail You Out?

The U.S. Government may not bail you out, but they may help you pay for a Laserfiche Document Imaging system or for other upgrades in your technology.

There are only few weeks left to take advantage of the Section 179 tax deductions on IT equipment! Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment purchased or financed during the 2008 tax year. In addition, the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 offers a one-time “bonus first-year depreciation” of 50% on qualifying equipment.

To qualify for the Section 179 deduction, equipment must be placed into service before December 31, 2008. For more information, please consult with a tax professional or the IRS website. You may also access more information about the Section 179 deduction at:

What’s the ROI on document imaging?

A recent Price Waterhouse study provides evidence that document imaging could have a very quick ROI for your organization.

They searched 10,000 documents looking for a specific topic, author, and date range. A manual search of the paper files performed by a staff of paralegals took 67 hours and found 15 documents. The same search performed using a document imaging system took 4.5 seconds and found 20 documents.

What is the cost if a law firm cannot find 5 critical documents?

Did you know that a 250 GB Hard Drive:

Costs less than $100 and is usually in a standard PC sold today?

Will hold the equivalent of 5,000,000 pages which would fill over 400 four-drawer filing cabinets?

In the year 2000, would sell for about $3,800?

This is why document imaging is such a good investment for an organization today.
