Picking the Right Solution For You

K2 provides Continuing Professional Education for Accountants and other professionals throughout North America. K2 principals and associates have lectured and written on the subject of the Paperless Office and software solutions and processes to achive that goal for more·than a decade. The team regularly reviews a number of solutions and posts their findings at this site. If you do not see a specific product listed here, that usually means the Vendor has not provided assistance in the form of software to review, briefings and so forth. It does not necessarily mean there are not other good solutions available. K2 does not directly sell or implement software and therefore·can maintain a high degree of independence. Hopefully you will find the solutions you need here, if not, of if you have a fantastic solution we have not included here, please let us know.

Businesses of all types must rethink how documents and elecronically stored information in general is stored and managed.

Files must be securely backed up and stored off-site as well.  Here are solutions that the K2 Enterprises team has tested and use on a daily basis.
