Unisource Corporation (OTC: USRC) Headline: Unisource to Launch Visionvault Cloud Document Storage Application. Unisource Corporation today announced the deployment of Visionvault, a new enhanced module to the Visionship G3 system, launching this September. Visionvault is a new and intuitive Cloud-Based document storage application, which when connected to Visionpad - the company's mobile paper free shipping solution - will give users real time access to any signed, executed and stored document.
"Today more than 90% of manufacturers and distributors retain paper copies of specific transportation documents for a year or longer, and almost every company continues to do this manually, using typical folders and filing cabinets. Many other companies also pay a 3rd party to scan and electronically file paper documents for them at significant cost. With the release of Visionvault, these costs in time, storage space, and scanning can be removed." stated Bill Wood, CEO of Unisource."

Companies evolving to Visionship G3's paper free platform will receive Visionvault access for FREE, as a "value added" module on the SaaS (Software as a Service) Visionship G3 pricing license platform.
