Why businesses should go paperless in 2014

January 7, 2014

The holidays are over, and the start of the 2014 fiscal year is around the corner. Now is the best time to implement company-wide resolutions to improve productivity and reduce expenses. One way companies can complete this task is by making the commitment to operate with a paperless system.

What makes this approach more effective than others? This blog has discussed how governments and businesses saved thousands, even millions on dollars just from updating how records were managed. One of the benefits of going paperless, as Forbes Magazine contributor Tom Taulli puts it, “it will definitely save you time and money. But more importantly you can focus more attention on getting customers.”

It may sound like a no-brainer, but becoming a fully-digital office requires the help of a few components. Ranging from equipment that will transfer all paperwork into a company-wide system, a shredder to destroy the files and a cloud server to store the documentation — it sounds like the task may take a while.

“Going paperless is daunting, and an intensely personal process,” Business 2 Community explained. “Depending on your space, schedule and security requirements, you’ll have to craft a paperless workflow that works for you.”

However, it doesn’t always have to be this way. Instead of personally purchasing each of these items, a document management company in Chicago is capable of creating a paperless workflow for you. Starting with the scanning to the converting PDF files, business owners will be fully operational with a more efficient set up in no time.
