Use this link to see what’s new


You will notice one of the new items is the ability to use the A+ Paperless driver to add a image to an existing image in Amsoft. You can find a tutorial here: http://www.amsoft.org/viewlets/addtiff/addimagea.html
You can find all tutorials here: http://www.amsoft.org/Tutorials.htm

If you have our scanning but not the a+ driver, why not? It will take any document, e-mail, website, etc. from your computer, and attach them to your insured. No need to print. This alone should save hundred’s of dollars a year in paper and ink not to mention time.
The cost to cover all machines is $100.

If you’re not using our scanning or paperless office, why not? It is a great time saver to have all your documents available at your fingertips.

Did you know Amsoft can validate credit cards and accept checks by fax or email. his is great when you need an immediate payment from an insured? This link contains information on this.http://www.amsoft.org/xcharge.htm

One last thing: Backups
Every once in a while, we run into an agent that has had a computer failure. This could be from hardware failure or simply nature (Fire, floods hurricanes or earthquakes). We always feel badly when a user has one of these failures & looses all their data with no backup. This means they must start from scratch.

We suggest having 2 different types of backups. One should be local; maybe using a portable hard drive. This is a link to our forums and interesting software, where you will find a link there to a free backup called cobian: http://amsoft.websitetoolbox.com/?forum=171677
The other should be online. This link is to our website. Look for the link to the carbonite online backup. It runs about $59.00 a year. This is a bargain to get everything on your system backed up off site.

We suggest you use both.
