From the Paper:

"Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Outlook have proven to be an excellent resource of group collaboration software at PFG. Microsoft Exchange has allowed PFG to automate office functions like filing, typing, copying, and faxing. Microsoft Outlook makes scheduling appointments and meetings easy. The Microsoft Outlook calendar and corresponding viewing functions allow associates across the corporation to stay up-to-date with the latest appointment and meeting information. Microsoft Exchange and Outlook are office automation tools that provide extensive benefits to PFG. With database applications, data can be imported and managed more efficiently than through manual processes. Stored data results in professional reports, documents and letters through simple programming commands. Since a database application helps a business keep track of important business information, a database application program is a good investment for any business organization."
