Things to Consider
Here are some of the things you can consider before embarking on a conversion
Are your customers asking to receive information from you electronically?
If your clients are aware of how easy it is to find information quickly
online, they’ll begin to pressure you to provide it for their convenience.
This can become a strong competitive issue.
Are you interested in cutting the cost of distributing information?
If the recurring expense of producing paper documents is eating up your
budget, ask us at Mendem Concord how you can save money using online delivery.
Do you need to expand your markets to computer-literate customers?
If potential customers are likely to own PCs that can browse electronically
prepared documents, they may be more inclined to consider your products
if they can learn about them online.

Advice for Those Ready to Go Online
Mendem Concord personnel can consult with you regarding your needs. If
you want learn more about this topic, please refer to On-Line
Subjects. When you are ready to convert your documents or set up your
own conversion operation, contact David Demyan at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss your plans.
Try to consolidate your information into one format. If you have
word processing files in lots of different formats, conversion to online
will be difficult and time-consuming.
Use templates in your word processing files. Every word processor
allows you to create and apply templates to make your documents consistent.
Use templates because conversion to online will be much easier (and you
have the extra benefit of looking more professional and consistent both
on paper and online).
Use style tags if available. If your text is style tagged, conversion
to online is much easier. Style tagging allows you to assign regular formats
to recurring text elements. For example, a Heading style tag is always
bigger and bolder than body type (to allow it to stand out).
Plan graphics for conversion. Consult with Mendem Concord about
which computer graphic formats are best for dual-use documents (paper and
