Additionally, every year more than 300 million tons of paper will be produced worldwide. The fact that school and office environments are the greatest contributors to this statistic is alarming in and of itself, considering the available alternatives these organizations have.

Going paperless is something your business can take pride in and implement throughout your brand image. So, this is a win-win for your company and for the environment.

Less time devoted to searching for paperwork will increase efficiency throughout the workplace.
