Do You Have a Paperless Future?

THE TALK...

Going paperless can have a big impact on a business. Not only is it an environmentally friendly approach to running a company, but it can also result in significant improvements to internal processes and document management. Reducing or eliminating paper is a growing movement in many industries, including the window and door segment.

Earlier this year, Mashable.com reported that a handful of web companies that provide paper management solutions have teamed up to encourage movement toward a paperless future. They've even created a dedicated resource to the effort, Paperless2013.org.

Where is your company on the path to paperless? Have you made strides toward reducing the amount of paper your company uses in the course of business, or is it something you haven't embraced quite yet? If you have gone paperless (or significantly reduced paper processes), what has been the outcome? Is it worth the investment of time and effort?
