DENVER, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- More and more companies are striving to become more green in order to demonstrate their dedication to environmental responsibility. While it is very important to be environmentally responsible, Pacific Office Automation Denver points out that many of the so-called green initiatives will improve productivity, efficiency and ultimately, the bottom line.
"Companies are doing this for the right reasons, and that is wonderful," said a representative with Pacific Office Automation Denver. "It is not just about being environmentally responsible; it is also about being fiscally responsible."
Many companies will cite the reduction of their carbon footprint as a very valid reason for making their office paperless. This is not the only reason why it makes sense for going paperless, and other companies who have yet to change their methods should be aware of the other benefits.
"Even in the most efficient and organized offices, the use of paper documents will often result in time wasted," said the representative. "Retrieving, copying, scanning and distribution are all tasks that waste significant time. Not only that, but there is the potential for these documents to be altered or even lost. This is the height of inefficiency."
A paperless office, on the other hand, has no need for time wasted on simple logistics. Instead, these paperless companies benefit from improved workflow management in which search tools can file and retrieve documents electronically at a rapid pace. This means that more time can be spent on tasks that generate revenue for the company.
"A paperless office saves a great deal of money on printer supplies, paper supplies and storage costs," said the representative. "What many companies do not realize is that a paperless office makes substantial gains in productivity and profitability because so much time is saved. Employees will simply have more time to work on the tasks that bring money in for the company."
There are always obstacles to change. Many companies are hesitant to radically overhaul the way they do business, and many people still prefer to have something tangible that they are working with. Though they may seem daunting, Pacific Office Automation Denver believes that the change is incredibly worthwhile.
"We have facilities management experts who have helped many companies as they transition to a paperless office," said the representative. "Everything can be customized to the needs of the company, and the positive impact on revenue is simply too significant to overlook."
