iX ERP paperless is an initiative launched by iXDev as a response to COP recommendation to reduce the CO2 footprint and reduce the climate change factor. As iXDev is a cloud business application provider and automation / digital transformation partner, we developed a value in our tools to help reduce the office CO2 footprint by converting companies to a paperless environment and depending more on digital technology.
Paper consumption in the office
- The average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year.
- 45% of paper printed in offices ends up trashed by the end of the day.
- A typical employee spends 30-40% of their time looking for information kept in filing cabinets.
- Each four-drawer file cabinet holds an average of 10,000 to 12,000 documents, takes up to 9 sq. ft. of floor space and costs £1,000 per year.
- More than 70% of businesses would fail within 3 weeks if they suffered a catastrophic loss of paper-based records due to fire or flood.
- The average business’ paper consumption grows by 22% per year, meaning in 3.3 years your paper consumption will double.
