j2 Global Communications, Inc. today announced the launch of PaperMaster® Pro™ 7.0, a client-based document management solution that helps individuals and businesses organize messages more efficiently.

PaperMaster Pro version 7.0 continues to advance j2 Global’s document management solution by adding many new features and redesigning the user interface. This application’s design is based exclusively on feedback from PaperMaster Pro’s loyal user base.

“During the last eighteen months, we have listened closely to feedback from our PaperMaster users and are proud now to present them with version 7.0, which addresses many of their suggestions,” said Hemi Zucker, chief marketing officer of j2 Global. “PaperMaster Pro, like our signature eFax® service, demonstrates j2 Global’s leadership in turning paper documents and messages into easy-to-manage digital objects, thereby improving productivity and reducing costs.”

The most striking enhancement included in version 7.0 is the customizable user interface. This new interface, which is presented to look like a filing cabinet, can be easily rearranged to fit multiple purposes-improving productivity, enhancing usability and personalizing the experience. Additional new features include one-click scanning, scan stapling, document straightening, auto-cropping, an import wizard, and scheduled backup.
