Cut Costs, Not Trees: Go Green by Going Paperless
So, you know that evolving your documents to a paperless solution makes your operation more accurate and efficient. You know it saves you money. You know it makes things easier. Did you realize it’s also the green way to go?
Save Money on Paper and Shipping Costs
By eliminating paper, you’re reducing your environmental footprint by producing less waste and requiring less fossil fuel consumption from shipping that paper on its way in and out of your office.
A Smooth, Clean Operation
Removing paper from financial processes - accounts payable, invoices, etc. - speeds work flow and cuts the costs of processing invoices and other paper-intensive processes. That’s green and profitable.
Multiple Offices - Eliminating Paper Centralized Them
If your operation has multiple offices or traveling employees, removing the paper burden makes inter-office communication quicker and reduces the complexity of working on the road.
Scanners and electronic data capture on the road makes traveling easier - and sending files back to the office a snap. That means better collaboration among far-flung employees - and fewer couriers rushing documents back and forth.
More Space, Less Waste
Don’t waste your valuable office real estate on dreaded “filing rooms” filled with cabinets and paper. Eliminate the fees and maintenance of off-site storage. Give yourself a better environmental footprint by eliminating the transportation costs of getting items to and from an off-site facility.
Here are some interesting facts about paper consumption and the costs to your business:
A typical business office generates about 1.5 pounds of wastepaper per person, per day! Doesn’t sound like a lot, does it? Consider this...a typical ream of paper weighs about five pounds. That means an office of four people wastes more than a ream of paper each and every day! A typical office works about 240 days a year, and a ream of paper costs $3.00, that’s $720 year in waste paper for an office of just four people!
But we’re not done - on average, it costs about six cents to print a piece of paper. 240 reams of paper per year is 120,000 sheets of paper, at six cents per sheet printed, that’s $7,200 a year! Wasted!
And this is just what’s wasted, a small percentage of the paper you print, use, keep and store. Imagine how much money you will save when you minimize your paper consumption by evolving your documents.
