Paperless Office Solutions
Benefits of a Paperless Office
One of the biggest benefits of getting rid of your paper files is the cost savings. If it takes five minutes to retrieve and replace a paper file and an employee works with ten paper files per day, that's 216 hours a year - over five weeks' time - spent walking files around. At $20/hour, that's $4300 per year. A solution that lets employees find and work with those documents without ever leaving their desks can instantly slash those costs. Not to mention, you may be able to utilize office space that is currently being used to store paper files which will allow you to make much better use of expensive real estate.
In addition to cost savings there is the matter of securing files as required by many laws like Sarbanes-Oxley in the financial industry and HIPPA in the medical field. Document management is the best way to ensure you are complying with strict security and record-keeping rules.
Other benefits include better disaster recovery protection, environmental benefits and remote access for your important documents.
