10,000 is the average number of sheets of paper an office worker uses each year.  How do you compare?  Let's look at some other facts...  
  • The average office worker continues to use a staggering 10,000 sheets of copy paper every year. 45% of the paper printed in offices ends up trashed by the end of the day. In the U.S., companies spend more than $120 billion a year on printed forms, most of which outdate themselves within three months’ time. A typical employee spends 30-40% of his time looking for information locked in email and filing cabinets – filing costs average about $20 per month.

  • The average document is copied 9 to 11 times and every 12 filing cabinets require an additional employee to maintain. Each four-drawer file cabinet holds an average of 10,000 to 12,000 documents, takes up to 9 square feet of floor space and costs $1,500 per year. Each misfiled document costs $125. Each lost document cost $350 to $700 – large organizations lose a document every 12 seconds. More than 70% of today’s businesses would fail within three weeks if they suffered a catastrophic loss of paper-based records due to fire or flood.

10,000 sheets of copy paper is the avereage used by office employees each year.

Your boss or your CEO may be telling you to improve productivity, but where do you start?  Document Conversion is the best place to start, as it has immediate hard and soft costs savings.

Should you buy or lease your office equipmentOne of the most common questions I get is, should I lease my copiers and printers or outright purchase the equipment.   Buying a copier or MFP (Multi-Function Printer) can be an expensive undertaking: mid-level MFP’s range in cost from $3,500 to $10,000, with higher-end models exceeding $25,000. However, printing, copying and scanning are absolute necessities for running a business so the question becomes how does a company pay for this necessity?
