Is a paperless office a better office?

Advancements in software and a growing concern for the environment have pushed many businesses to go paperless and seek out services like a document scanning company to help them achieve that end. Going paperless, in addition to helping the environment, can provide huge benefits to your small business, some obvious and some hidden. An example is more time spent on actual working because less is spent on filing and searching for files. Those who have taken the dive to all-digital can attest to the power and efficiency of utilizing tools similar to FileCenter’s document management software, to automate your daily struggles.

Accounting and HR have long been an automated process for most larger businesses, from those looking for a manufacturing accounting system to help them streamline their processes to those looking for HR management to help with employee welfare. Nowadays, however, the software has become so inexpensive that even the smallest companies can now afford it. Companies like Gusto have you covered there. What about those pieces of paper so important that you legally can’t be paperless? Believe it or not, even legal documents can now be taken care of digitally. Hellosign is a favorite of all of us at Handlr for it’s free service and ease of use. Now instead of mailing out documents or waiting days to meet in person, we can sign documents in a matter of minutes, even if the other party is across the world. What you might ask, about the more day-to-day tasks that require a personal touch?

Take for instance, the small business owner who spends hours each day, tracking down customer payments, then bringing checks and cash to the bank each week. What could they do with that time if this process was automated? How much could they grow their business with those extra hours each week? Take into account the Business owner who uses up valuable time each day writing out, updating, canceling and re-writing the schedule for each employee. What if this could be done automatically? What if the customers themselves could book appointments without ever calling up? You’d be hard-pressed to find a business owner who wouldn’t eagerly spend that time acquiring customers and increasing revenue. These days, there are a number of eCommerce solutions that are readily available in the market. If you take AEM services as an example, you can see how they provide third-party solutions to manage the business from start to the finish line.
