The paperless office has felt a bit like a pipe dream for more than three decades. So many have tried to make it a reality for so long. In fact, here are some fascinating statistics about the challenges business face with paper documents:
- Each day, one billion photocopies are made (Source: Forrester Research)
- The annual growth rate for the amount of paper produced by the average company is 25%. (Source: Gartner)
- There are over four trillion paper documents in the US alone, and this number is growing at a rate of 22%, or roughly 880 billion paper documents a year. (Source: Coopers and Lybrand)
And these stats are even a few years old. They are from 2014. These numbers are actually increasing and not decreasing.
At The Polack Corporation, we ask the question, is paper really the problem? We think it goes so much deeper than just paper. It more about how we use paper in our day-to-day operations. It's how paper is so ingrained in our daily business and personal lives. When our processes require printing a document for a signature or printing a document for review, it's difficult to move away.
