is not about a tree...
... it's about
Worker productivity - Cost savings
Customer service & engagement - Risk reduction
AIIM research looks at how less paper in the workplace delivers significant benefits. Key findings show that eliminating paper from processes can improve the responsiveness of customer service by 300 percent. Moving content to PCs and tablets has the added advantage of helping companies adopt mobile-enabled processes and eliminate elapsed time, lost forms, poor data and re-keying.
To effectively mobile-enable processes and reduce reliance on paper, data should be captured as close to the point of origination as possible, which makes information easily available to whomever needs it, wherever they are, in the shortest time possible.
Papersucks Contest -- Winner Announced!
A few weeks ago, we announced a contest. The objective -- provide one idea for removing paper from business processes. The winner, who has received access to AIIM's new Process Improvement training course:
How about “#paperordigital?” (word play on the ol’ “paper or plastic” grocery store choice). The practical idea: ask all retailers to donate one cent to a “green” fund for every instance where a receipt is not printed or delivered electronically. from Adrian Ungureanu
And the three runners up:
1. Rather than printing and scanning, IMPORT into your document imaging system whenever possible – images will be cleaner/clearer and you won’t waste paper and you will save some trees which doesn’t suck. from Barbara Redline
2. The management (from top level down) stop accepting (reading, commenting, *signing*, etc.) documents on paper (and other physical media). from Alexander Samarin
3. Remove the paper and hang a sign on each printer in your building. On Printer 1, the sign says: OUT OF ORDER. Please use Printer 2. On Printer 2, the sign says: OUT OF ORDER. Please use Printer 3. On Printer 3, the sign says: OUT OF ORDER. Please use Printer 1. from Johnnie Walker
