Audit Your Current, Paper-Centric Processes

How much paper is there in your workplace? Where would it make most sense to cut paper? Start by tackling the small, tangible initiatives that will help you demonstrate quick wins. For example, 45 percent of the paper printed in offices ends up in the trash bin every day, and 30 percent of print jobs are never even picked up by the user. Auditing the processes that produce such waste will give you a clear understanding about your organization’s paper consumption and ultimately help you determine what hardware and software you need (or don't need) to truly go paperless.

Buzzwords like “Innovate!” “Disrupt!” and “Transform!” sound great. They’re super powerful but can also feel daunting – and from an IT perspective, these terms can often sound like a huge undertaking, very expensive, and lack a definitive set of actions. But regardless of how abstract they may seem, companies of all sizes are feeling the pressure to transform into “digitally driven” organizations. What does that really mean, and what is the first step toward change?

Fifty-seven percent of IT leaders say they’re committed to digital transformation, and looking at paper consumption is an essential entry point. By eliminating paper-based processes, you can start digitally transforming your entire organization in a way that’s easy to implement, cost efficient, and beneficial for employee productivity and customer experience alike.

In this slideshow, Nitro has identified six essential ways IT leaders can go paper-free to make true digital transformation a reality.
