Are you on the lookout for smart investments for your business? Most businesses are constantly searching for them, but they are usually not easy to find, especially ones with high rates of return. Working with Microtek and putting our effective, low cost digital and paperless solutions in place is definitely a smart investment! This is true for many reasons. Here are the top 5:
1.) Quick return on investment (ROI)! According to AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management), 67% of those adopting digital and paperless processes report complete payback within 18 months, and 50% see complete payback in a single 12-month budgeting period!
2.) Save money! This includes saving lots of money right away on labor, paper, ink, and other office supplies like staples, paperclips, and folders. Per AIIM, on average businesses spend $20 in labor to file a document, $120 in labor to find a misfiled document, and $220 in labor to reproduce a lost document. Filing only a few documents a day can cost a business thousands of dollars a year! Also, the average employee uses 10,000 sheets of paper each year, which equals to an annual cost of $80 for each employee, so a business with 75 employees would save $6,000 a year in just paper expense alone!
3.) Save time! How often have you told a customer or colleague that you need time to find something paper based and get back to them? With our solutions, you can increase productivity and stop playing detective because files no longer get lost, you’ll find what you need when you need it because of quicker access to information, and you will respond faster by ending the paper chase which will improve customer service and customer satisfaction. For an employee spending just 1 hour a day searching for and then refiling documents, they are using approximately 250 hours a year with paper, which is equal to over 6 weeks of time that could be better spent on more useful tasks that bring in money to the business instead of wasting it!
4.) Save physical space! Reduce or eliminate the need for file cabinets, which frees up valuable office space for other important uses like more room for current or new employees. The average price of renting real estate ranges anywhere from $30 to over $100 per square foot a year depending upon location, so just one standard 4-drawer file cabinet that takes up 15 square feet (this includes the actual size of the cabinet plus the space needed for someone to stand in front of opened drawers and access files), at $65 a square foot, costs almost $1,000 a year! File cabinets don’t make businesses money!
5.) Get peace of mind! Going digital and paperless is an important part of business continuity planning and disaster recovery planning. Who can put a price on the value of that?
As you can see, the financial, time, space, and peace of mind savings and benefits of working with Microtek and using our digital and paperless solutions far outweigh the investment involved in making the change.
