The drive to become entirely paperless may be worthwhile, but the elimination of all hard-copy documents is still some way off.
Not only does printed output still remain a critical element of most organisations document workflows, for many it’s on the rise. According to the latest "Evolution of the Digital Workplace", research:-
- 42% are printing more than they were 12 months ago
- 43% are scanning more often
- 37% are copying more and
- 45% believe they’ll be using multi-function devices more
Which means that, without proper management and controls, there is huge potential for greater risks and increased waste.
