Green ECM

Green Technology, I like this word and I am glad because I am working in ECM field that supports green technology concept by default. Implementing document management solutions in your organization will move your company steps toward green initiatives, this by reducing as an example the consumption of electricity and paper.

When you implement document management solution, you want your organization
  • become paperless and removing paper bottlenecks
    this will reduce trees cutting, usage of oil, and emissions of carbon
  • reduce paper storage
    this will save space, that would require energy consumption for heating, lighting, and humidity control
  • centralize paper management and accessibility
    this will allow accessibility of documents from any location, which will reduce paper printing, and number of employees who are commuting to an office (which will save oil)

    Do you know

  • 1 tree makes 16.67 reams of copy paper or 8,333.3 sheets
  • 1 ream (500 sheets) uses 6% of a tree

Document management will not only save money to your organization but also will help your organization to become green organization.
