November 6 has been designated as Paper-Free Day by the Association of Information and Image Management (AIIM), the global community of information professionals. In observance of the day, organizations are encouraged to refrain from printing, copying, or distributing printed documents, in favor of digital and virtual methods.

As a premier provider of business process outsourcing and digitization solutions, Swiss Post Solutions (SPS) actively promotes awareness of the inherent benefits and value of going paper-free. In a recent poll conducted by SPS, over 80% of respondents surveyed said their organizations are using less paper today compared to five years ago. Additionally, 85% noted their businesses are actively seeking automated solutions that eliminate paper processes.

While digitization processes seem to be gaining momentum, many organizations still hesitate to remove document-intensive processes from their core activities. In fact, studies show that 85% of business documents are in paper form, and the average document is printed five times.

Dan Moscatiello, CEO of SPS North America, said, “Paper-Free Day reminds us of the positive economic and environmental impacts that organizations can realize by automating and digitizing paper processes. As a leader in innovative document management systems, SPS has provided streamlined solutions that yield substantial cost savings for our clients by reducing storage space, expediting document searches, and eliminating burdensome paper files.”
