We offer simple, cost effective and quick to implement services to help you to transition towards becoming a paperless office.

Paperless Office Save space and improve efficiencies

Though systems continue to improve all the time, we are now in a position where we have come to rely on computer systems as much as we do paper. New laws and legislation within the last few years also mean that more and more documents are legally recognised, meaning that we are considerably less reliant on paper based files.

Going paperless is much simpler than you probably think. Just work with the alternative which will be a digital version of the paper that was once there. That’s a pretty easy process you would think, but it’s also a mindset built up over a short period of time. For example, you might find yourself looking around for a particular document that you need information from in a filing cabinet or drawer; this is normal practice, it’s just what we’re used to.

Once established, an electronic document management system (which isn’t as complicated as it might sound), can become your company’s very best friend and once your staff are used to the transition, which can depend on their level of expertise with computers, which will usually take a very short period of time. If you’re used to sharing a document with a fellow staff member by printing it and passing it on, then just email them the PDF using our document management software. Quicker, easier and saves on paper. And once the system is in place, you might wonder why you never thought about being paperless before. We go into our paperless office solutions in the other tabs you’ll see above.

Advantages of paperless office

efficiency icon

Improves efficiency

Having a paperless office will reduce the time needed for you and your staff to search for files in order to retrieve vital information, which consequently allows the staff to complete more tasks throughout the day and that fundamentally saves costs. Additionally, morale of employees will improve due to more varied work day. Essentially, paperless office allows to do more in less time.

Helps environment

The paperless office helps you to reduce your paper usage to help fight against deforesters. Your paper may very well come from an ethical company that replenishes it’s supply of trees with new growth, but it’s very difficult to actually find this out, and why take the risk? You’ll be helping the eco-system out either way.

Paperless office also helps to reduce ink usage, which is infamous for the effects it has on the environment, both the fumes of production, the actual usage of the ink and the after effects of the plastic casing being very difficult to recycle.

Process of going paperless

We will scan and convert your document library into digital documents which can be accessed on any computer, anywhere when connected to your network. There are a couple of ways this can be achieved:

Offsite document scanning

This would consist of us picking up your documents from you and bringing them back to our central hub for the document scanning and conversion. We have worked with our couriers for what seems like decades, so we know that your files will be in safe hands, both on the way to us and once they get here too, thanks to our Red Care security systems, multiple surveillance cameras both outside the building and in, as well as our padlocked, shuttered and alarmed doors of which there are 2-3 doors on each entrance to the building before you are in the scanning area and storage facility.

Onsite document scanning

We recommend onsite document scanning for those who do not want their documents to leave their property, whether you don’t feel right about sending them to an external company or for further security reasons.

We also offer great software solutions so that you can truly feel the benefit of going paperless. Halogen our document management software, has been developed in house and is made to be as simple and easy to use as possible whilst offering many features such as the ability to edit documents, search through entire files and email and share the data with others.
