Digitally Capture Signatures of Patients, Clients and Customers With a Digital Signature Capture Pad.

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

Signature Capture PadsThe need for signature pads is growing. It is no longer a matter of saving paper and getting rid of clutter. Digital signature pads make signing documents easy by allowing patients, clients or customers to sign their signature electronically. The pad sends the signature to a computer in the form of an image.

Electronic signatures can be placed in Excel, Word and other documents. The signature pads can also be interfaced with other software programs. Pharmacies will often use the signature pads to get a signature from a customer who is getting a prescription. Signature pads are also used to get signatures for credit card transactions. A signature capture pad can be used in almost any location a signature is needed. Some signature tablets can even be used for note taking and filling forms. The notes and forms are electronically
captured and saved on a computer.

Hard-wired pen tablets are good for use in close proximity to a computer. One problem discovered is that signatures are not always gathered near a computer. Due to this inconvenience, wireless pen tablets have been growing in popularity. Many wireless pads have a working distance of 500 feet within line-of-site and 50 feet in non line-of-site locations.

Some of the more unique capture devices include the IDGem 4000 fingerprint sensor. This standalone fingerprint scanner uses a standard USB connection to provide you with valuable fingerprint data and help you secure your transactions.

ABC Office has continued increasing its inventory of signature pen tables due to the in increasing popularity.  ABC Office has dozens of different models of signature capture devices
available.

Have You Ever Wondered How Softbound Books Are Created?

Friday, October 15th, 2004

Perfect Binding MachineSoftbound books are by far the most popular form of binding for reading books. They surpass the popularity of hardbound books. Have you ever wondered how softbound books are created? Maybe not, but I’ll introduce you to some of the equipment used to do this.

Softbound or softback books are created using a binding process called perfect binding. The binding process is a very easy concept. Perfect binders take a stack of papers, apply glue to the spine and attach a cover. The machine may be a bit of an investment at first, but the actual price of binding the books is rather inexpensive. Machines vary in complexity. Some perfect binding machines require more manual work, where others are almost fully automatic.

Stop by and have a look at our perfect binding machines. Call (800-658-8788) one of our sales associates if you have any questions.

Precise Cutting is No Longer a Wish, But a Reality With the Rotatrim Rotary Paper cutter.

Tuesday, October 5th, 2004

Rotatrim Paper CuttersAt first they may look like pizza cutters fixed to metal bars, but the Rotatrim rotary paper cutters have moved up the line as the preferred method for precisely cutting paper. The idea is simple; a circular blade slides back and forth along a supporting rail. The result is paper that is precisely cut. You no longer have to worry about crooked cuts and ruined photos.

Rotary cutters first gained their popularity by scrapbookers who used them to cut photographs for albums. Photographers soon caught on, and rather than use a ruler and an exacto knife, now use rotary cutters as well. Rotary paper trimmers are now used by graphic arts departments, advertising agencies, print shops, universities, architects, drafters and more.

Mid-level Rotatrim rotary cutters are inexpensive and can precisely cut up to three millimeters of paper at once.

Rotatrim has taken these trimmers to the next level, creating industrial versions of this reliable paper cutter.

Industrial rotary cutters can cut up to four millimeters (5/32-inch) of paper at once and sheets of paper up to 99-inches in length. Industrial cutters are not only capable of cutting through paper, but can also cut through hardboard, rubber and shim steel

Motor powered Rotatrim rotary cutters can be operated with the push of a foot petal.

Jeremy Mayfield, a sales associate with ABCOffice.com, says that he always recommends the Rotatrim Cutters. “Customers are happy to hear that they don’t have to rely on traditional arm cutters that are unreliable and can cut at an angle”, says Mr. Mayfield. He has never had a complaint from a customer, and uses the cutters himself for occasional jobs.
