As we tick over to a new financial year, we're really pleased to share great news about our reforestation program in partnership with Printreleaf.
Together with many of our customers we have now reforested well over 3,000 trees in just over 9 months.
As an organisation that provides print services, we are glad that we can offset the amount of paper printed on BMS managed devices and give back what we take from our environment.
Mountains of paper everywhere? Running out of storage for all those documents you legally must retain? Dreaming of an office without paper, or a lot less?
Fear not. Introducing some simple changes in your workplace will get you on the road to paperless 'freedom' in no time.
To get you started, we've put together a good habits guide that will help you and your team make positive change without too much effort or cost.
Good records management is imperative in any business. Whether yours is a paper-based system, digital, or combination of both, the significant role it plays should not be underestimated.
Every business record has a life cycle and needs to move smoothly & securely through your business from the moment it's generated through a variety of stages until eventually requiring disposal.
Prior to disposal, (and as you're probably well aware) you need to store your business records for some length of time. Business compliance in this area of document retention is currently going through some change, and it's important to understand exactly how long you are legally required to retain certain business records, as it can vary from one industry to the next.
Here's our take on what a productive mobile print solution should be for your business. Your best bet is to align with one quality brand for both your hardware and software and you're sure to back a winner.
Last year we wrote a post outlining what mobile printing can do for your business. Only a few months down
the track we can see that the topic has raised a few eyebrows - mostly due to a lack of understanding as to what it is, how secure it is and whether it will be a help or a hindrance to productivity.
For some businesses, mobile printing may not be a wise technology to engage with. But for others, it may be just what they need to work more efficiently.
Big or small, contracts are a critical part of doing business. With a unique contract needed for each business relationship you have, it can be a massive challenge keeping track of each and every one. The terms & conditions, policies, responsibilities and expiration (to name a few) are factors you need to be on top of to remain compliant.
Whether you personally manage all the human resource requirements for your business or you have a team to help you, ensuring you've dotted all you 'i's and crossed all your 't's can be time consuming and take you away from other important work.
Your Accounts Receivable process many seem like a simple order to cash process, but in reality there are several steps involved. Each of which takes time - often too much time - to eventually get the job done.
If your office is weighed down literally by the volume of paper documents you need to generate and store, the good news is that there is a way to overcome it - sooner rather than later.
Going paperless may seem unachievable, but it can be done. It will save you time, space and money.
