Tips and tools from NAMB technology chair John
Day-to-day techno babble made simple
Welcome to a new National Association of Mortgage Brokers year, and
with a new year comes new ideas & sort of. Actually, we will be
applying a well-known and proven idea to a new area. Why? Because
we know it helps.
Here it is: Each month, we will take your questions on technology
and do our best to answer them in this new column, so everyone may
benefit. We know you are inundated by new and innovative ways to do
this or that, while many of you do not know how to use BCC in
Outlook, how to send your Point file as a PDF, or for that manner,
what a PDF is good for. This column, we hope, will address the
basics, with a tip or two thrown in monthly for the technology
gurus out there as well. Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am telling you now that I do not have all of the answers, but I
will do my best to find them out and deliver them to you here.
After all, isn't that something a national trade association should
be doing for its members? We think so.
Finally, the other thing you will find here is a note on new and
exciting concepts that we will be rolling out over the 12 months
that will help you use the tools that NAMB has made available to
you. That's it. Nothing too fancy; just plain old, "You asked for
it." If you haven't asked for it, maybe now is the time & we
