As a business leader, you’re always looking for new ways to help employees do their jobs faster and for your company to run more efficiently. One way that you can accomplish both simultaneously is by reducing paper usage in your office. We all understand that paper is an outdated mode of information storage and sharing and that digital options abound.
Despite this, a typical office employee uses nearly 10,000 sheets of paper every year. The truth is, even though we know that paper documents are insecure, hard to track, and wasteful, it is challenging to change the way we’ve always done things.
But your own business is not the only thing suffering from an over-consumption of paper: the U.S. throws away the equivalent of one billion trees in paper every year. Businesses must embrace paperless solutions, not only for efficiency, but also for the environment. Document management is the simplest single way to accomplish a significant reduction in your consumption of paper. Here’s how it works:
- Simple digital sharing functions reduce the need to print
- You can scan and recycle old paper documents
- Digital collaboration tools allow for simultaneous editing rather than printing many versions of the same document
With these benefits and many more, document management helps reduce your environmental impact. If you’re ready to go green and help your business succeed, call us today. We’ll help you start earning your Green Office Certification.
