Do You Remember What it Was Like to be a Kid?

The world was your playground and everything was full of magic and adventure. Unfortunately, while many of us were off battling dragons and defending our castles, accidents would occur. Whether it was a broken bone that was obtained from falling out of a tree (the top of a castle) or a cold that was caught while building the largest snow igloo (ice fortress), we have all had to pause our adventures in order to visit a doctor.

Object to Unmanaged Print

When asked which type of case she would prefer, Lawyer Elle Woods from Legally Blonde replied, “I’d pick the dangerous case, because I’m not afraid of a challenge.” This quote seems to summarize the attitudes of many lawyers. They are always looking for a challenge, and are constantly trying to find ways to push and excel at what they do. While this ambition is admirable, MPS, or Managed Print Services can help lift the burdens of what can be an overwhelmingly paper-intensive business, and free up time so those in the legal industry can focus on what they do best.

Why is Printing In-house Better than Out-sourcing?

Posted by Chalise Moore on Jun 8, 2017 9:00:00 AM

In this fast paced world, we often want our lives to run as efficiently and cheaply as possible. The way we print things is no exception. When it comes to printing there are usually two different options; out-sourcing and in-sourcing. As an intern who is new to the printing industry, I didn’t know much about the benefits of in-sourcing. However, thanks to the people and resources at Les Olson Company, I have learned that there are countless reasons why in-sourcing is better for businesses, and I'd like to share them with you.

Making More Engaging Business Presentations

Posted by Marie Bradshaw on May 30, 2017 12:13:12 PM
In today's fast-paced and innovative environment, academic and business presentations should no longer be boring -- limited by inefficiencies and lack of innovation. Thanks to pioneering technologies, we can now deliver meetings that are simultaneously creative, collaborative, educational, and productive. Your time, and the time of those you give your presentations to is important, so creating presentations that are as engaging as they are informative is essential. Given this, your organization could benefit from a digital presentation system. Gone are the days of the whiteboard, and even the static slides. Now it's all about interactivity.
