Go paper light for efficient document and information management

Not quite ready for the paper-free office? You’re not alone. Most businesses don’t envisage a future without paper (PwC research 2012). For many organisations, the most practical solution is a hybrid approach that maximises the business potential of digitisation with the benefits of secure off-site storage. We call that hybrid paper light.

Why paper light?

  • Digitisation gives you faster access to information and can reduce costs. It can also give you secure flexible working and help maximise the value of the information you hold. If you digitise the right documents, you’ll be in a position to speed up customer service and reduce the office space used to store paper documents.
  • Secure offsite storage helps you lower costs by reducing your office storage space. Plus, offsite storage protects your documents from theft or unauthorised access. It can also help you  manage compliance by knowing exactly what you have, where it is and how you can access it quickly.

To learn more about the journey to becoming paper light and the advantages you’ll gain, get our whitepaper, The Paper Light Office, a realistic roadmap to digitisation.
