As the cost of paper continues to rise, how can electronic document management help?

With the cost of paper set to rise by at least another 10%, now is a good time to look at how electronic document management can help to save money.

Have you ever worked out how much it costs to keep business information in paper format? Paper is now an expensive commodity. Printing and photocopying documents either for storage or distribution is also an unnecessary waste of money. By implementing an electronic document management system an ROI will be realised within a very short space of time as you start to see stationery bills vastly reduce. Every document which is produced electronically such as letters, spreadsheets and Powerpoint presentations can be stored directly from application into an EDM system. Emails and faxes can also be saved without having to print a paper copy. Files can be kept in electronic format and distributed using workflow or just emailed to relevant personnel. Other than letters which have to be mailed out, the requirement to print or photocopy will greatly diminish as all internal documentation will be managed electronically.
