Include going paperless in your spring cleaning

April 28th, 2014 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Information Management

Spring cleaning isn't just for homeowners, and as the weather starts to warm up businesses need to consider doing a bit of their own. From updating IT systems to clearing out ancient filing cabinets, cleaning house can be therapeutic for the company as it looks forward to the last three quarters of the year. In many cases, one of the strongest ways to accomplish this spring cleaning is to invest in paper conversion services and migrate all of those older records to digital formats.

By including a paperless strategy as part of this year's spring cleaning, businesses can optimize their workflow and work out the kinks in their operations quickly and efficiently. Furthermore, companies will be able to reduce their spending on office supplies, printer repairs, document storage and a variety of other areas, improving their budgets as well. The financial benefits of spring cleaning will help support future projects while helping to center second quarter budgets.

By and far the most valuable advantage to embracing a paperless strategy now, however, is the immediate ROI firms will achieve regarding employee productivity. As the weather warms up, professionals are thinking about family events on the weekends, cookouts and other outdoor activities. This can negatively affect performance, but by embracing productivity enhancing strategies that improve the flow of information and overall efficiency, businesses can circumvent these challenges and meet them head on with stronger technology support.

Ultimately, it is valuable to implement a paperless strategy at any time of the year, but doing so now will have the added benefit of accomplishing the related tasks sooner and starting to reap the rewards for a faster, more efficiency information management system.
