The preservation of the environment is a high profile issue and one which many of us are passionate about. We all on the whole try to do our bit at home from recycling in our various coloured bins, to saving energy by turning off lights and electrical appliances and installing solar panels on our roofs. But we rarely do the same at work?
We find that many companies are keen to embrace greener working practices but are concerned that it would be costly to implement, overly complicated to introduce and would be a drain on already overstretched resources. The reality is that the very reverse is true with managed document services, meaning you can transfer the environmentally conscious attitude you practice in your own home into the workplace, simply and cost effectively.
Managed document services were designed to improve the management and deployment of your print and document infrastructure. They were not originally conceived as a way to become a greener enterprise but the benefits associated with the implementation of managed document services not only enhance your business by making it a more streamlined and efficient machine, they also make an impact from a green perspective.
For example managed document services will reduce your businesses power consumption by improving the efficiency and reducing the number of devices you operate, diminish your waste output and consumption of consumables with the introduction of automated processes and make you savings of up to 40% on your energy bills. All of these contribute to your business have a reduced impact on the environment.
Functioning as a greener operation can also empower your staff to embrace and support environmental practices. We often find that the best way to get staff on board with managed document services is through Green Ambassadors – members of your team who are passionate about protecting the environment and want to make a difference. Enthusiasm and dedication from within your team will be the most effective way of persuading your staff to make the most of managed document services.
Becoming a greener enterprise doesn’t have to be problematic with the right processes in place. Managed document services will take away the hassle of monitoring, implementing and managing green working practices. In the same way your local council manages recycling, managed document services take the problem out of your hands and simply present solutions that are easy for your business to operate and maintain.
