Tis the Season to Be...
Scott Bidwell, ASI President/COO
As you're probably aware, that sentence would typically end with "jolly" but as I write this, "connected" is what keeps coming to mind. I suspect this is due mostly to the upcoming relocation of our ASI office and the many hours spent planning each detail. The most critical of these is the relocation of our data center so that there is minimal downtime or "disconnection." Maintaining data connectivity is of primary importance -- for ASI, for our clients-- and we've taken great pains to ensure the ASI data center is online as quickly as possible during the relocation process.
In the not-so-distant past, planning an office relocation had more to do with installing carpet and getting the walls painted. Now, it's all about fiber-optic circuit installation, climate control and server systems. It's the world we live and work in today. Maintaining those connections so that we can access data on demand, whether it be for business or pleasure, is what we've come to expect.
With connectivity being so top of mind, this time of year also reminds me that staying connected is about reaching out to friends and family, or lending a helping hand to a neighbor or a stranger in need. While it's true that staying connected means different things to different people these days, what remains the same is how vitally important it is that we stay as connected to one another, as we do to our data and devices.

Deliver Digital Docs with ImageKicker
With extensive beta testing successfully completed, ASI's newest client utility, ImageKicker, is available to our VCKweb.NET clients.
ImageKicker is an exciting new PDF delivery utility for ASI's records center clients. With VCKweb.NET and ImageKicker, records centers are able to deliver digital documents to their clients upon request – quickly, easily and securely.
ImageKicker receives a PDF from your existing scanner, encrypts it and attaches it to the file index for that particular record. Users with a VCKweb.NET account are then able to view, download and/or print the document versus waiting for delivery. PDF images can later be purged from VCKweb.NET or left on the server indefinitely using the cleanup feature.
If you're interested in expanding the services available to your clients via ImageKicker, please contact ASI Support today.
