Stanford provides a variety of document management solutions. Stanford community members with a full-service SUNet ID can take advantage of one, some, or all of these tools simultaneously. If you aren’t sure which one to choose, use the same product as the rest of your team.
If you need help converting paper files to digital files and determining which online storage solution is best for your team, a UIT representative will meet with you to discuss your individual needs and offer advice for turning your paper files into digital files and storing them online. To learn more, see Document Management Consulting.
