Why You Need to go Paperless

Did you know that 69% of businesses still rely on paper systems to run their business?

The use of manual paper tracking is quickly becoming a big no-no for professional companies. While paper may have its place – let’s say for a nice holiday card, in the big scheme of things, paper can be wasteful, inefficient and unorganized. In the logistics industry, manual paper-tracking of packages, routes and drivers is a miscommunication – and a lost shipment – just waiting to happen!

Finances

Paper usage is driven by financial systems, invoices, excel sheets, etc. Numerical data has zero tolerance for errors and mistakes, whether they are miscalculations or misplaced  documents, are bound to happen. ShipTrack, a tracking and tracing software solution, provides built-in invoicing and data algorithms that do the calculations for you. By streamlining your financial processes, you are ensuring your clients 100% reliability and presenting a professional business image.

Administrative

ShipTrack’s order processing engine has been proven to reduce administrative workload by 2.5 hours a day.

Think about that. How much time in a day is spent reading paperwork, writing paperwork, filing paperwork and then finding old paperwork? Now imagine all those tedious tasks are gone and replaced with a single computer portal with all your data and information accessible at the touch of a button.

Time is money and ShipTrack delivers a range of workplace time-savings by eliminating paper, such as:

  • $20 in labor for filing each document.
  • $120 spent in finding each lost document.
  • $250 in re-creating lost documents.
  • $25,000 to fill a four drawer file cabinet

Green is Good

Did you know that by eliminating paper processes at 1.2 million shipments a year, you can save $48,000 in annual paper costs?

Going green should be a given for modern day businesses, but in reality, not all have made the transition. Not only is eliminating paper crucial for the protection of our environment,  but maintaining paper-based systems simply wastes time and energy.

Switching to tech can have an amazing effect on the environment such as:

  • reduced fuel costs
  • improved corporate image
  • 31% reduction in order-processing/distribution time

Going paperless is the way of the future. The changeover is critical, not only for the environment, but for the overall functioning of your business. Going paperless will help you get things done faster, more accurately and save in resources. ShipTrack can help you make that transition into the world of tech.
