CBS News writes that corporations spend between 1-3% of their annual revenue on printing. By filling out and signing documents in the browser, we save companies from having to print, sign and scan documents – which is an incredible waste of both paper and employee time.
Here’s what CBS News suggests:
“Invest in digital signatures. One of the most common reasons for printing is to sign a document. You can eliminate that requirement by using a digital signature. HelloFax, for example, is an online fax service that can store a digital version of your signature. You can stamp any digital document with that signature and email or fax it from a PC. There’s no longer any need to print stuff just to sign it.” –3 Tactics for Weaning Your Office off of Printers.
