Going Paperless at Home and at Work

Everyone wants to make their life easier, people want to spend less time at work and more time with their friends, pets, themselves and their families, if you want this then going paperless is a step in the right direction. There are many benefits of adopting the practice of being a paperless office or business or even in just your personal life. Over the years that we’ve been in business, we have helped numerous companies go paperless in one aspect or another. Here are a few tips for you to go paperless too.


Embrace the use of Apps for daily tasks

Need to make a note, write a to-do list, a checklist, anything that needs writing on paper doesn’t actually need to be written down. Yes, there is the old adage that writing on paper is just much more helpful with productivity and there is something different about penning down your ideas but with apps like papyrus and just the native notes app on your tablet and phone you can still “write”. Technology leaves us without many excuses in regards to why we use more resources than we need. Squid is a good option, and check out this list by quickbooks of 5 handwriting note taking apps for your smartphone and device.

Google Docs/Drive, Dropbox (any file sharing app)

This happens almost everyday in an office- you want to share a document or a file- maybe a form or a contract- how do you share it with a colleague? Easy, you e-mail it right? That is the obvious answer but you’d be surprised how many people still fax, print and deliver physical documents. Google drive is a secure way of sending documents to people, it’s also a great tool to use for collaboration in creating a document because multiple parties can edit it in real time without each person having to have a copy.


Online banking

Gone are the days we have to use physical materials for banking, deposit slips, withdrawal slips, queues. Thank God that’s no longer necessary. Mobile banking is such a common thing now that there are people that can go months without having to step foot in a bank. In some offices people still write cheques which may not seem like a big deal but writing cheques mean that paper is being used and so is energy to cash the cheque. Online banking makes it so easy to move money from one place to another and in more ways than some it is much more secure than using a paper trail. With the mobile apps being locked with things like finger prints, passcodes and face ID now it’s the safer, cheaper, faster option.
