What Is Digital Tiger?
With a paid Paper Tiger Online account (Basic and Pro plans), you can connect to your Google account, to activate Digital Tiger. Digital Tiger and Paper Tiger work seamlessly together to provide you one place search function to find BOTH your digital (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDFs and almost any other file type) AND your paper files that are in hard copy format and other physical items in one search. Using both products, you will be able to "Find Anything in Your Office in 5 Seconds or Less...Guaranteed!" This will allow you to truly get organized and stop wasting time looking for lost information.
Digital Tiger is powered by Google Docs. This means that you will be able to scan all or some of your paper into PDF format and store the PDFs, along with almost any other digital file, into your ultra low cost and amazingly powerful Google Docs account. Other document management systems in the marketplace are too complex and too expensive. Digital Tiger, working seamlessly with Paper Tiger, allows you to easily find anything you have filed, digital or paper, very quickly from one interface.
We combine this with great training and support to provide you with a total solution to allow you to easily set up your digital paper management/document management system and make your organization more efficient with minimal effort or cost.
Digital Tiger and Paper Tiger are both designed to be easy to set up and simple to use. Powered by Google Docs, you can be assured that your data will be there when you need it with a 99.9% guaranteed system uptime and a company the size of Google Docs storing your valuable information. In addition, you will be getting great new features automatically as they are introduced.
Least Expensive Online Storage!
Because Digital Tiger uses Google Docs for its storage engine, you will be able to purchase the needed disk space (and PDFs take a lot of disk space!) at an unbelievable price. Google Docs is by far the least expensive way to store your information in the cloud. Compared to other digital paper management or document management systems on the market, you could save thousands of dollars per year. The basic plan with Google Docs is FREE and you can purchase 25 GB of disk space for $2.49/month! It is an unbelievable deal. See Prices for Additional Google Storage. (prices subject to change based on Google's pricing plan)
Stable & Safe Company
If the company storing your data goes away overnight, so does all of your digital files! It is very important to have your data stored in a place that you feel is not only stable but also a safe place to house your precious data. The entire system must be redundant (Google system is very redundant with an 99.9% guaranteed uptime), secure and the company is stable.
Supports Many Scanners
If you are looking to convert your paper files to digital PDFs, you will need a scanner. The scanner you purchase should be able to directly work with your storage engine, without any additional steps on your part. It is much too time consuming to scan in images and then upload them manually. Because Google Docs is so popular, many name brand scanners are now supporting direct input into the Google Docs system. The scanner software will create the PDF, convert the PDF to a searchable format using OCR (optical character recognition) and then upload the file into Google Docs in one simple process, saving you enormous amounts of time and making the process more enjoyable.
Use Google Apps
One of the most awesome things about Digital Tiger using Google Docs is that when you store your digital files, you will also be able to work on the files in the same location that they are stored. Google Docs is part of the Google Eco System that includes Google Apps - there are modules to perform word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, email, calendar, to-do list, contacts, photos, music, etc. This makes it very easy to work on the files you are storing in Google Docs.
In addition, if you want to continue to use your Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel or PowerPoint), you can do that and get many of the benefits of the Google Cloud. Google's product "Cloud Connect" allows you to continue to use your Microsoft Office software on your local computer but store, share & collaborate in using the Google cloud. This is a great way to use software that you already know but have the benefits of the cloud, including automatic backup, using Google.
Share - Collaborate
Google Docs makes sharing and/or collaborating on your digital files very easy. Now you can scan in your paper and immediately share the PDFs with your business associates.
Scaleable Storage & Everything In One Place
Not only is the cost to use Google Docs extremely inexpensive but you can purchase as much storage as you need with the click of a mouse, currently up to 16 TB (that is a lot of storage!) As you convert all of your paper files to PDF and load your other digital files into the system, you can easily and cheaply add additional storage as your needs increase.
Google Docs works very well with almost all the emerging mobile devices including the Apple iPad, Apple iPod Touch, Apple iPhone, Android phones and most other web-enabled devices.
Backup Offsite & Local Sync
Google Docs (all your digital files) can even be backed up offline to your local computer or you can select another service that will automatically and constantly backup all your files stored in Google Docs (including your GMail - Google Mail) to another entirely different system for safekeeping. In addition, Google Docs is working very hard on releasing Local Sync. This will make it extremely easy to keep your files on your local computer and those in your Google cloud in sync. This way you can view and use your files locally but have the benefits of the cloud when you need it.
Plays Nice with Others & The Future
If you choose to use Digital Tiger, powered by Google Docs, you will be storing your digital files on a system that many other online software applications work with and you will be setting yourself up for enhanced productivity for the future. Google is constantly improving their applications and other software companies are constantly integrating into Google Docs.
