While many of the technologies and ideas of the classic cartoon are still a ways off, some of them have already been realized – including the automated workplace. Paperless strategies are just one piece of this puzzle, but an important one.

By investing in paper conversion services and the necessary hardware to go paperless, companies are demonstrating a commitment to excellence, as well as a desire for forward moment. Paperless workflow is the evolution of years of efforts to reduce a reliance on paper and ink, and companies are finding more and more that these efforts allow them to cut costs and improve workflow – not just have a neater appearance in the office, though that is also a benefit.

Companies across the globe are striving to reduce the amount of paper they use for several reasons, but simply improving the quality of operations is often a good enough reason. Information can be shared more readily when in digital formats, and companies can optimize the storage, protection and efficiency of their data as well. Furthermore, cutting paper has a significant impact on environmental efforts.

Going paperless isn't just a way to improve workflow, it's a sign of embracing the modern way of doing business, and companies can look forward to future innovations delivering continued benefit as a result.
