How we've benefitted from a paperless office

Most of you use e-mail as your primary method of business communication and many businesses already pay bills online and get electronic statements from the bank. But there are so many more ways you can help reduce the effects of global warming and at the same time save a great deal of time and money associated with dealing with paper. A paperless office is no longer merely a lofty ideal but increasingly a reality for many companies including ours. We wanted to share with you some of the benefits we've encountered since making the switch here at Mouton Consulting:

  • We've reduced business costs associated with paper, printers, copiers, fax machines and ink and toner cartridges dramatically. Seriously, spend five minutes looking at your financials and figure out your yearly cost in paper and consumables... It's going to shock you. 
  • We've managed to eliminate filing cabinets altogether and reduced clutter in our office space. That's given us space for more plants, a really cool vinyl player and a foosball table.
  • We're more equipped than ever to conduct business in a mobile environment resulting in faster responses to our clients and we've created an even faster business work flow by eliminating the time wasted on getting paper signatures on contracts and forms that used to be hand delivered. We recommend SignNow for digital document signing and Dropbox for sharing documents online.
  • We've seen increases efficiency just from eliminating the time spent searching for and sending documents and we've got peace of mind knowing that we have secure backup of all our documents. Oh and we get real time updates on the delivery of our documents worldwide.
As part of our commitment to a greener tomorrow, we'll offer free advice to anyone interested in the move to a paperless work environment. Just shoot us an email and we'll get in touch.
