Happy Earth Day everyone! We at Aciron would like to take this opportunity to talk to you, our loyal readers, about corporate environmental sustainability. According to Ecopreneurist, an average company wastes 1.5 pounds of paper per employee per day. 1 This means that many of the forests that are being cut down each year are ending up in the garbage. One easy way for your company to prevent this waste is to ‘go green’ with technology and reduce your paper usage.
An easy and cost-effective way to reduce your paper usage is by employing a document management system (DMS). By definition, a document management system is the use of a software solution to digitally store, manage, and track documents and images of physical documents captured through a scanner. Document management systems can help automate your manual file storage processes to help save time and increase overall company efficiency. Read about the top 3 reasons why your company should consider ‘going green’ with your technology by employing a document management system.
Going green by reducing your paper usage is not only good for your social karma, but also for your wallet. Using a document management system, you can reduce the amount that your business spends on paper and paper-related office supplies. A DMS also improves your business’s efficiency because of its organized and searchable document library. In case disaster should strike, a document management system will allow for your business to recover without permanent data loss.
