If you've been under the impression that going green in the workplace means more work and expense for your company, you'll be relieved to discover the exact opposite is true. Companies looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint can make the smart move to a document management system from RLMark.

Seeing the Problem

Remember when we believed computers would automatically reduce paper consumption? Unfortunately, that's not been the case. That fleet of printers has empowered today's office worker to hit the print button without giving it a second thought. The resulting paper consumption is astonishing:

The average office worker uses over 10,000 sheets of copy paper per year, using a whopping 40% of wood pulp supplies. And that paper represents more than just trees. A full 1 1/2 cups of water goes into just one sheet of paper. Multiply that by 10,000 sheets and that paper represents 11,500 cups of a very precious resource. Don't forget––that's just for one office worker. A lot of that paper gets filed, but much of it does not, translating to about 40 million tons of paper thrown away each year in the US alone.

How to Reduce Paper Consumption

Fortunately for today's companies, the old mindset that going green means increased costs no longer holds true. With document management, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that environmental responsibility and fiscal responsibility go hand in hand. Digital documents cost less, are easier to locate, free up office space, and are more secure than paper documents.

Go Green, It helps Everyone!

Going green by using a document management system means files are saved digitally, drastically reducing your company's print output. With a document management solution from RLMark, you can expect to realize a 30% savings on in-house printing costs, including paper supplies, ink, toner, and energy. Document management is a win in every way for your company and for your world.
