Mayan Calendar End of the World Sale

Through December 21st - the last day!
(No returns accepted until December 22nd)
If the world is going to end you may as well get a good deal on something. To start, how about a free copy of DocuPage? DocuPage lets you view and tag PDFs, TIFFs, and other image files to file with a unique title/filename and other standard DocuShare metadata (summary, description, keywords, and author). It doesn't have the dynamic filing capabilities of DocuPage Pro, but if you're tagging documents to be filed in the same collection you'll find DocuPage very handy. If you're filing invoices, for example, just change your target collection every month to file by year and month. For your free download and license, click here.  You'll find a link to an eForm in the zip file to request your license.

Our CriteriaFirstWare site still reflects Ground shipping costs, so call us at 972-492-4428 for the discount. We can send a quote for you to have approved if you'll request one from us by phone or
