A paperless journey.

So has anyone successfully changed to a paperless office?

I've been looking to do this and seen some interesting web document management systems (preferably open source).

I know there will always be a need for some paper, but my goal is to reduce as much paper as possible.

Some points.
1. Dual monitors are must for office workers, their current screen to work on and one for the archive/(Document Management System)

2. Fax to PDF archive. Save on printing a couple hundred a month just on toner and drum. Also, makes searching much faster.

3. High-speed document scanner for current file cabinetís archive.

4. Deciding on which system to use...

I will update here as I go.

This is a distant & near impossible dream but how about digital money & no paper money.
All the payments done by debit cards. Instead of government printing paper money they should create electronic money. Business payments, salaries, shopping or product payments done by debit cards.

This sounds like a great idea and it's fantastic that you're pursuing the ideal of a paperless office. Unfortunately, I've found the reality to be totally the opposite... we have more paper in our office nowadays than we did 10 years ago!

Let us know your results- hopefully I can get my boss to sit up and take notice!
