It may seem self-explanatory, but a paperless office is one which takes as much of its documentation and data as possible onto a digital or online environment. It does not necessarily mean that there is not so much as a sheet of paper anywhere to be found, but rather that a company is making a concerted effort to reduce their use of paperwork. The impact of such a transformation for a business can be huge, leading to growing productivity and higher customer satisfaction, providing a clear case to be considered. Yet, it is understandable why some firms have been reluctant to make the change.

Deciding on print or digital is key to efficiency.

Finding the perfect balance between the two is invaluable in the effort to successfully achieve a paperless office.
