Mr.Jones offered you a FREE print and copy document cost analysis and report. In his last letter he mentioned that I would be calling to see if you would be willing to meet with us, and thatís the purpose of my call today. Would you be willing to meet with us for a short time to determine if we might be able to save you some money on your document processing costs?
