Paper is all around us. From the packaging that our online shopping order arrives in, to the sticky note you grab to write your shopping list. Removing paper from our work can be easier said than done.
When we look at the consequences that follow the use of paper, especially in this mass-produced world of paper that we live in, it is easy for the cons to pile up.
Let us rather focus on some of the benefits you, your business and the world around us can reap when we decide to have a paperless administration process.
Although it can be harder for some industries than others to completely implement a strategy to get rid of paper. There is a lot of advantages when this strategy is successful.
