It’s 2021. If you’re not already a paper free business, you’re behind the times.
Is it really worth investing your resources into getting rid of your paper files, and taking everything online?
There are so many benefits to your business going paper-free. And they’re not all about the environment (though you should note the average employee uses 10,000 sheets of paper a year, so cutting that out will save a small forest).
Getting rid of paper will mean that your business is a lot more organized. Your documents will be easier to find, which means no more time wasted hunting through paper files. And you can access them from wherever you are.
You’ll also save money. Think what you spend on printers, ink, postage, physical storage. All of that will just disappear. When you switch to paperless, you’ll save an average of $80 per employee.
Oh, and then there’s the small matter of increased data security. When everything is online it can be encrypted, locked behind passwords and protected by security software.
Can you keep your paper files as secure? Probably not.
And, just in case you need more incentive; your office will look so much tidier.
Of course, it does require a time and resource to create a paperless business. But once you’ve done it, you will definitely be glad you did.
