We are lucky to live in age in which technology has such a strong impact on our life. Think about how easy our life is compared to the previous generations: technology has improved our lifestyle so much. This is why I think we should seriously start thinking about creating paperless office. We have the technology to create paperless office and we just need to encourage our employers and colleagues to start reducing the use of paper. Creating a paperless office will bring lots of advantages to our company:
Reduce costs: saving thousands of $ on printing emails, paper, mailing and storage space
Document security: switching to electronic documents will improve so much security of information
Management of business development: if you track online information on your employees or customers, you can easily manage the development of your company without the need of additional space
Access anywhere: if you switch to electronic systems, clients can access information anywhere at any time with no need of paper
Efficiency: less paper in & out will eliminate paper returns and improve a lot the efficiency of your company
Social responsibility: creating a paperless office has a positive impact on our entire world
What can we actually do to start creating a paperless office?
1) Create a team focussed specifically on reducing paper use
2) Identify and share with your colleagues the benefits of reducing paper
3) Set goals to plan step by step the creation of a paperless office
4) Track records and report your progress to the management
Creating a paperless office is the future of our work style, let's go for it!
