Are You Missing Out on Scanning Savings?

Scanning has been around for quite some time, but many businesses refuse to incorporate a document imaging solution. There are several assumptions made about the world of scanning, many of which are outdated and misleading. There is a good chance that your business is missing out on drastic savings, simply because you are unaware of all of the benefits document scanning can bring to your business.

Here are some facts about how your business can be boosted by incorporating a document imaging solution.

  • Saving your workflow: Maximizing your day-to-day operations so that your business’s workflow is optimized is one of the chief benefits of a document imaging solution. In fact, your workflow can actually improve by 30%. Imagine if all areas of your business could be boosted by such a high percentage. Optimized workflows save time and money, so embrace a scanning solution sooner than later.
  • Saving time: In addition to improved workflows, document scanning also saves time when it comes to finding your documents. Scanning software makes indexing all documents easy, which then makes finding those documents later on a breeze. Instead of sorting through filing cabinets or stacks of paper, you can find exactly what you’re looking for in a matter of seconds.
  • Saving paper: Businesses need paper, at least for now. Exactly how much paper depends on the size of the company and their specific needs. However, by incorporating a document imaging solution, you can drastically reduce the need for paper, which saves on storage costs and reduces your carbon footprint. In the United States alone, there are 4 trillion paper documents, and that number grows by 22% each year. Utilizing double-sided printing, and incorporating certain paperless functionalities, can help you not add to that pile.

Why Recycle Toner Cartridges?

In a perfect world, businesses would never produce waste. After all, waste is not only bad for the environment, it’s also bad for the pocketbook. Because of how prevalent waste can be, oftentimes businesses overlook easy steps that could reduce their waste, such as recycling toner cartridges.

Here are some of the benefits of recycling those old toner cartridges.

  • Reducing emissions: By recycling toner cartridges, you help reduce the more than 40,000 tons of plastic and metal that goes into landfills, meaning you are also reducing air and water emissions. Landfilling, incineration, and the manufacturing of new cartridges are all cut down when you recycle your cartridges.
  • Conserving natural resources: Recycling means that you are taking part in a global effort to reduce the need for raw materials. This way, resources such as water, timber, oil, and minerals are being used less.
  • Saving energy: The amount of energy consumed when unneeded waste must be processed is astronomical. This is because the energy required to make a new cartridge is several times that of simply reusing or recycling an old one. Currently, only 20-40% of empty cartridges are recycled, meaning up to 80% go to landfills.
  • Improving quality: Saving the planet is great, but your business must still rely on high-quality cartridges. Fortunately, recycled cartridges are just as reliable as new ones. Also, recycled cartridges are cheaper. This way, you are saving money in multiple areas, and helping to reduce the 300 million cartridges that are thrown away each year.
  • Simplifying the process: Many businesses hesitate to begin recycling their cartridges, for fear that it is a tedious task. After all, business are busy places, and who needs one more thing to worry about?
