RE: Computer Update
Date: March 30
As you know, all employees will receive new computers during May. In order to minimize work disruption, we will be installing the computers over a period of three weeks, rather than all at once, as originally planned. Installation of new computers will be made per department (see schedule, attached). Between now and your scheduled date, you should make copies of all necessary documents and store them on a disk.

We understand that saving files will take planning and time. Each department head has scheduled a two-hour work period for employees to go through and save files. If you have any questions or need help with large files, contact me immediately. This is a major investment by the company which will enable all of us to work more efficiently and effectively.
