Per reduce.org, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper annually. You may be able to mitigate that through the use of laptop scanners. Portable scanners can integrate as part of a digital filing system that may reduce some significant paper usage. Additionally a business card reader or business card scanner could complete the transition towards a paperless office.
Most businesses believe that they need to archive paper documentation for legal reasons according to a survey by AIIM, a content management industry association. This accounts for the 1.019 trillion estimated documents that businesses print, copy and fax each year in the U.S. according to InfoTrends. Just eliminating business cards, can cut a fraction of that number. They can easily be scanned as an image or as text through a dedicated device or laptop scanners.
In switching to a predominately paperless workflow with laptop scanners means that fewer people have to be on location or in the office to deal with the paper and the associated tasks. Laptop scanners provide a simple portable solution to process any existing paperwork and transform it into a digital document. Through the use of optical character recognition, OCR, your laptop scanners can also extract text from documents so that they can be edited as needed.
