Going paperless requires several changes to business strategy and workflow, and for many companies one of the best ways to support these efforts is to embrace mobile workflows. However, in order to deliver on remote working via mobile devices, businesses will need to improve their information management solutions.
According to Wired, adopting mobile working strategies can help businesses succeed with their paperless efforts. Such strategies will help firms achieve their goals faster by eliminating traditional types of paperwork from the office environment by the sheer fact that the traditional office environment will no longer exist.
With most businesses there are three types of paperwork that have to be eliminated to go paperless – internal documents, external documents and statements, proposals and bills. According to Wired, migrating from a normal office to mobile workspaces cuts internal documents out simply because workers are no longer in an environment where they are useful. Furthermore, external documents are simplified because in order to disseminate them to employees they have to be scanned and uploaded through document management software.
The trick is to streamline the migration of the last category – statements, proposals and bills – to digital formats. To optimize this process, companies can invest in paper conversion services to minimize the effort it takes to move and expedite the usability of these resources. This will better support mobile employees and achieve paperless goals faster. From document access to ease of collaboration, the right foundation for paperless workflows will drive productivity and efficiency to new heights for any business.
"With mobile workspaces, we can leverage technology to not only be more productive, but to also find new ways to work better," Natalie Lambert wrote for the news source.
