Ways For You To Be Greener
Problem: Need to be Greener
Changing the way we do things always starts with educating ourselves and changing our mindsets. If you are trying to reduce the paper consumption in your offices, then you should start by addressing specific areas where most of the paper is being used. Once you can identify where or what process are the most paper heavy then you can start to plan how to offer new alternatives. We now have apps on our phones, computers and tablets on which we can take notes, set reminders, schedule meetings and other daily tasks that will help to cut down on the amount of paper we use in addition to utilizing business technologies to help on the enterprise level.
How can I have a Greener business to show my commitment to the environment?
The Solution: ECM
Going green especially on the enterprise level is a complex, multi-faceted topic that has many moving parts.
It is very important that we all do our part in protecting the environment. It does not always have to be a drastic change but it can be a very easy gradual process that businesses can adopt that will bring huge benefits across the board. Reducing the negative impact that businesses have on the environment has been an ever-present topic that is changing the way people do things. The number of ways you can start this process is vast, but the most common way to start is by reducing resource usage, implementing recycling policies, and encouraging people to print less and to store more images.
Many organizations are finding that Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Document Capture solutions are crucial to their environmental agenda. The benefits of using an ECM solution makes it hard to argue against. Just the efficiency increases that come along with having a document management strategy in place and all of the savings you will have from using less paper and supplies will pay for the solution itself -- extremely quick. It is a win-win situation both for the environment and for your business.
ECM will help streamline your business processes and will meet your specific departmental needs in areas like Accounts Payable, Human Resources, Contract Management and more. These solutions will help those departments go paperless and decrease the amount of manual processes.
