A Word From Our President
February has flown past - literally in some sense. I've been lucky enough to visit clients and partners on the West coast of the US, New York, the Netherlands, France and the UK. In the next couple of days, I will also be in Ireland. Aside from keeping in touch with people, one of the greatest things for me is listening to our clients describe what they are trying to achieve and how Litéra could help "if only you could do this..."
Often we already do "it", but when we don't, the ensuing conversation can be the seed that grows into a new feature or a new solution. The range of subjects is surprisingly diverse. The hot topics of Machine Learning and AI come up all the time, but so do cloud, mobile, efficiency topics and an interest in complete solutions. One thing has come through strongly; the best organizations have a clear view of how documents flow through their organization, and how they can reshape the whole document lifecycle to make sure every document is better.

No longer are people looking for the cheapest solution. There is a broad understanding that the way a document is created, reviewed, shared and collaborated on, and the way it is finalized and distributed all have to be considered together to maximize productivity and quality. All of this needs to be built upon a secure framework that allows people to work anywhere.
In this issue of the newsletter, we are highlighting a couple of solutions that make the send event more efficient, secure and allow better control over the message. A secure file transfer solution is essential in some circumstances. We feel it needs to be so simple to use that even the most powerful features make it easy to do the right thing.

Litéra Smart Send™ stops email "oops" moments, but it also improves the way you present information to your recipients. You can reorder, rename, convert to PDF, clean and bind attachments so that your email can simply describe your message, and the purpose of the attachments is clear.
 
Email Solutions:  Litéra Smart Send™
November 14th 2016 is a day that will live in infamy for 1.2 million employees of a large UK healthcare provider. Why? Because on that day a test email mistakenly went out to the entire organization, and more than a few irritated recipients responded to the email using 'Reply All'. Utter chaos ensued.

Case Study: Stetz, Belgiovine, Manwarren, and Wallis, P.C.
For Alex Belgiovine, a partner of the high-profile accounting firm Stetz, Belgiovine, Manwarren, and Wallis, P.C., the challenge to find a replacement for the firm's email security service came as a sudden surprise. Late October 2015, Intel announced the End-of-Life (EOL) of its McAfee Email Security Solutions, and Belgiovine had to face the unforeseen responsibility of finding a suitable replacement for the firm's secure file transfer system.
