Final Step in going paperless- Getting rid of the printers

A couple weeks ago I was talking with one of our clients about how they were able to achieve their objectives of going completely paperless on their project. They said the biggest key to success was getting rid of the printers in their project office. The client said it was the only way to break the bad habit of their users constantly printing project documents. Talk of Green benefits, cost savings, team objectives all failed to break the users tendency of clicking print. Initially after removing all the printer there were a few grumbles among the team members but after a couple weeks there was not a single complaint within the office. We realize not everyone can make this drastic change given they may be required to have wet signatures on legal documents. For these cases you may want to consider only allowing users access to printers who must print legal documents for wet signatures. Even though you may still be printing a few docs the dramatic reduction in paper, printing supplies, and printer costs will make your finance department and green team very happy.
