At its core, the movement to build a paper free workplace is about simplicity. Enterprise processes, business critical tasks, and the way we manipulate and utilize information are more effective and user-friendly when physical paper is replaced with a digital format. Simplicity is important, because our organizations are comprised of a series of moving parts, all performing complex tasks and making complex decisions; the less complicated and unwieldy the enterprise is to the end users, the better. Without support to simplify enterprise operations, tasks, and technology, employees have a more difficult time of doing their jobs. The result is disruption in productivity radiating throughout the company.
