Here’s Why Your Office Should Go Paperless

paperless office

Reducing the use of paper tends to be a top goal for most businesses. Not only is it more sustainable, but it creates a more organized office. Focusing on digital processes will help your company go paperless, here’s how.


While eliminating paper in your office entirely is impossible, there are places you can get started. If you begin by sharing files digitally instead of printing you can reduce printing. Here are a few benefits that come along with printing less.

  • Reduce Printing Costs: If your printing less, you will be spending less money on consumables such as ink and paper as well as the energy it costs to run a machine.
  • Eliminate Inefficiencies: Paper gets lost, and notes are forgotten. When an office runs more digital processes, you can forego inefficiencies created by paper.
  • A Cleaner Office: Less paper hanging around means less clutter. Sustainability: If you have an office-wide goal to become more sustainable consuming less paper is a great place to start.

Making the Transition

Moving to a digital office isn’t always quick and easy, but it doesn’t need to be difficult. Here are few ways you can make the switch.

  • Find Processes You Can Change: Instead of printing out packets for new hires, send them pdf versions that they can access on a mobile device or desktop computer.
  • Move Your Files to Cloud Software: Scan files into a cloud software where everyone on your team can access them. Collaboration is a direct output of a paperless office.
  • Utilize Print Management: Print management is a service that will analyze your print environment to help you reduce printing and in turn rely on digital processes.
