Save the tree – use eForms (statistics)

Reading the “8 Factors to Consider in Creating an Information Management Strategy eBook and Presentations” found a few interesting data points to consider:

  • If the U.S. cut its office paper use by roughly 10 percent or 540,000 tons, greenhouse gas emissions
    would fall by 1.6 million tons — equivalent to taking 280,000 cars off the road for a year.
  • There are over 4 trillion paper documents in the U.S., growing at a rate of 22% per year.
  • For 56% of organizations, the volume of paper records is increasing.
  • The average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year and wastes about 1,410 of these pages.
  • With the average cost of each wasted page being  about six cents, a company with 500 employees
    could be spending $42,000 per year on wasted prints.

That can be a good justification of moving to eForms
