Changing default font save $100k – but misses the point!

The University of Wisconsin recently made a simple change to their email system that saved them thousands of dollars. They changed the default font on their email system to Century Gothic, which uses about 30% less ink than Arial.

Everyone was amazed that a simple change like this can save so much money. And they were very proud that they found this easy change that saved thousands of dollars. But, I think they all are missing the point! No one was asking the right question. Why are they printing all these emails?

I hope you are asking the right questions in your organization. And that you are looking at paperless technology to reduce the amount of paper used and greatly increase productivity in your office.

If you are interested in looking at paperless technology. I would be happy to show you how Laserfiche electronic document management software could help you move toward a paperless office.
