However, a paperless office may cost less. To make the decision a calculation of the cost of paper in your organization is needed.
Using our spreadsheet let’s calculate the cost of paper for your organization.
Paper and Printing
With the volume of paper, we can calculate the total pages and estimate the cost for the paper and printing.
Time to File a Document
For many, this time is considered equal to filing electronically; however, the time to file paper can be much longer when you include the walk to and from the filing cabinet. Electronic document management may also provide automatic filing of documents.
Time to Pull Documents
Consider the case of the paper document that you can’t find. How long did you spend yesterday looking for a document? Moving to paperless allows for all documents to be indexed and found with a quick search.
