With the way that technology continues to evolve in the workplace, many businesses consider it feasible to go paperless, or at least drastically reduce the amount of paper used in the office.

Here are four tips to help you significantly reduce paper usage in your workplace:

  1. Minimize the number of desktop printers – In many office environments, a desktop printer sits on the majority of employees’ desks. Not only are these printers expensive to maintain, but they also make it convenient for your employees to print without much thought. Instead consider a centrally located multifunction printer for print jobs and more.
  2. Eliminate the need to physically sign documents – Technology has evolved to allow digital signing of documents, minimizing paper waste.
  3. Tracking print jobs – Most multifunction printers offer the ability to track printing. By using this feature, you can easily track the number of pages that your employees are printing helping you pinpoint areas of waste.
  4. Use your scannerReduce waste and save time by sending your scanned documentation directly to the recipient who will receive it as a PDF file.  Optical character recognition (OCR) makes files editable by converting them into digital text that can be easily indexed, filed and stored online.
