Excuse #4 For Not Adopting Document Management: “Green/Shmeen”

March 27, 2013

Go Green

Excuse:

Who cares if the average document is photocopied 19 times? Not my problem. I’ve got more important things to worry about.

Reality:

Sure you do. Until your waste removal company begins charging if you don’t recycle. Or you don’t have any place to put your new hires because all that “extra” space you had when you moved in is now full of file cabinets. Or your shareholders begin questioning your commitment to environmental stewardship.

As you can see, “going green” involves much more than saving trees and reducing carbon emissions – though these clearly have significant long-term benefits for our planet. Closer to home, it speaks directly to cost control and brand equity, and achieving it requires developing a corporate culture that values sustainability, and adopting technologies that can make this a reality.

The good news is that a large majority of the paper that businesses print out –some estimate as much as 80% – is “born digital” … that is, the information it contains was originally created electronically (as a Word file, a digital photo, etc.). Because much of the up-front work of document automation thus has been done for you, incorporating the result into your information management strategy should be a no-brainer, and can tinge your operation “green” without really even trying. Never mind the cash and real estate it promises to free up!
