Move Towards a Sustainable Office with Document Management

July 29, 2020 | Advanced Office

The move toward better sustainability is one that benefits everyone. Companies that are going green positively impact their image in the community as well as raising employee morale. With document management, your company can be more sustainable.

Save Space

With document management, the documents that are the lifeblood of your company are in digital form only. With rare exceptions, paper is not needed and documents are created and stored without ever printing them out. This saves a lot of space in the office, requiring less room for your business because there are no large file cabinets necessary. A smaller office with less furniture, paper, and heated and cooled areas, is more eco-friendly.

Save Resources

Document management allows for quick retrieval of any document because it is in digital form. This means less paper has to be used in the office. Paper is one of the resources that offices use the most of, and it is a massive waste problem. Using less paper means less paper has to be ordered and fewer trees have to be made into the substance. A greener office also uses less ink, and ink is often not biodegradable. Fewer ink cartridges being used means less trash in landfills. Less printing also means using less electricity to run printers and copiers. It also means less reliance on the air conditioning, as printers and copiers heat up the office space.

Saving Time

With easier and faster filing and retrieval of documents, productivity is boosted. That means that more is getting done in the same amount of time. With more getting done, workers don't have to stay in the office as long. Having fewer people in the office working means using less power, water, and other resources. It's a good way to go greener.
