America Recycles Day perfect excuse to reduce paper consumption

November 8th, 2012 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Document and Information Capture | Document Management

With America Recycles Day approaching on November 10, many businesses are looking for ways to celebrate. And what better way to do so than by reducing paper consumption as a whole?

Some businesses and counties are hosting shredding events, according to KYForward, while others are taking different initiatives to eliminate waste and properly dispose of paper and other business-related recyclables. For many, the best solution may be document conversion services and related paperless efforts.

Going paperless, or at minimum reducing the amount of paperwork that is used internally, is an excellent way for a company to reduce its budget, be more productive, eliminate costly paper-related hardware like printers and filing cabinets and help save the environment as well. In order to accomplish this switch, though, a business will need to invest in document management solutions.

With the right investment, a business can begin reducing its paper usage immediately, while also converting its archives to digital formats over time. This allows the company to stop generating waste immediately, while slowly switching over to an entirely paperless system. A fully digital solution will enhance organization and information management, increase productivity and help workflow overall.

Ultimately, embracing paperless tools like document management and conversion will allow a business to better use its data, improve use of its office space and eliminate a great deal of wasted resources on paper, ink, printer maintenance, filing cabinets and more. These benefits add up to give a company enhanced control over its budgets and more freedom to invest in other ways to improve operations, rather than spending money on a paper trail.
