Google plus ‘Paperless 2013’ campaign aim to transform company offices into paper-free zones
The long-running aspiration of a “paperless office” could be one step nearer after Google added its backing to a new campaign.
The campaign, entitled “Paperless 2013”, is being led by online fax specialist HelloFax, which is backed by a number of companies including Google Drive (cloud storage), Fujitsu ScanSnap (scanner division), Xero (online accounting), Expensify (online expense reports), Manilla (online bill management) and HelloSign (e-Signatures).
The campaign aims to provide monthly tips and articles for companies who sign up, showing how they can achieve a paperless office in 2013.
It hopes to employ peer pressure, coupled with backers’ various online services and tools, to help businesses go paperless. This reportedly includes giving members free or discounted offerings from the above mentioned online service providers such as Google Drive.
“The digital tools that are available today blow what we had even five years ago out of the water,” Joseph Walla, HelloFax founder and CEO, was reported as saying by TechCrunch. “For the first time, it’s easy to sign, fax and store documents without ever printing a piece of paper,” Walla said. “It’s finally fast and simple to complete paperwork and expense reports, to manage accounting, pay bills and invoice others. The paperless office is here – we just need to use it.”
