    The Most Important Documents Every Company Must Have


    Much more than just a handful of important documents that every company must have. It’s also about how to kick-start your company’s knowledge management system and to seed a culture of effective quality communications.

    When Manuel says “knowledge management system”, he means a company-wide standards and procedures guide, documentation of policies, processes, procedures, checklists, forms, and reports. To kick-start this knowledge management system, Manuel has provided a few of the most important document templates you will need, starting with a checklist template that you will use for everything from new client onboarding to new workstations to archiving users and beyond.

    How To Document Any Process


    Sometimes the hardest thing to accomplish is the documentation for the thing you’re building. It’s the bane of your existence if you’re in any field that performs repetitive work of any kind. And if it’s not just the documentation of what you built but also how to use it, well that comes in pretty handy when you want to show someone how to actually use what you built. From a light bulb to an electron microscope, knowing how to build one of these can change a nation overnight. But who has time for that?

    Imagine if you had the most commonly performed processes, no matter how simple, documented in one place. Like the onsite service call process, or maybe the new user onboarding checklist and how to use it. Let’s say we store these in a Standards and Procedures guide or Standard Operating Procedure manual. And what if the SaP or SOP was in a Wiki on SharePoint for everyone to see?

    Cleaning Up Your Email


    A Comprehensive Guide to Clearing Out the Junk and Reducing the Size of Your Mailbox. A Series of Proven Processes for Users of Microsoft Exchange and Outlook.

    We’ve all seen it (or done it). There are fifty users on the network, and four of them take up 13 GB of space in Exchange while the remaining forty-six take up less than 2 GB combined. There are three things you need to do to fix this situation. The first is education. You need to let the client know how expensive this lack of policies and procedures is for their company.

    After that, you need to clean out the offending mailboxes. And finally, you need to set up processes so that the bloat doesn’t happen again. This white paper was written specifically to address these issues with MSP clients. It has also proven to be a good marketing tool. We offer up the white paper to prospects as a way to demonstrate our seriousness and commitment to providing more than “tech support.”

    Technical professionals will also find great information here, including detailed procedures for cleaning out email boxes and helping clients maintain them going forward.
