While the term paperless has been around for quite some time now, it has only been in the last few years where technology has made this transition viable for the average consumer. Here are 5 key reasons why you should consider making the change:
Reduction of clutter
This is typically the first reason people want to go paperless, and it is easy to see why. Eliminating stacks of paper or removing entire file cabinets can give you a lot of space back.
You are in a meeting, and you need to look something up, but the folder with that document in it is back at your office. If that file had been converted to a digital version, you could have opened it up on your phone or tablet right on the fly.
Easy to share
If you want to share a physical sheet of paper, it means that you have to either deliver it in person or send it in the mail. Sharing a digital version of that same sheet of paper can happen instantly using a wide variety of options; email, text, and download are just a few of the ways you can share.
Imagine trying to carry 250,000 documents around with you; sounds nuts, right? That is how many can fit on even the smallest of portable drives today, so it’s no longer a crazy thing to do. Having your content portable opens up a lot more options for keeping it safe.
This one is probably the biggest reason of all; having a searchable archive of all of your content is incredibly useful and valuable. No more having to dig through stacks of paper or comb through file folders. Instead, you can quickly open up your digital archive and type your search term, and voila, there it is!
