The "Less Paper" Office: How to Reduce Costs, Enhance Security and Be a Better Global Citizen
This is a white paper on how to use paper more responsibly, reduce the amount of paper that the organization uses and effectively drives business improvement from a cost, communication, and environmental standpoint. As long ago as the late 20th century, people began talking about the possibility of a "Paperless office." The first prediction of the paperless office was actually introduced in an article in Business Week in 1975 on "The Office of the Future." It became a buzzword in the 1980s. It coincided with the advent of the personal computer, and the hope was that all documents could be processed electronically and that paper would become irrelevant.
