The paperless vision is appealing, and rightly so. There are obvious benefits of going paperless such as preserving natural resources to save the environment. But there is more than first meets the eye. A sumup blog post comprises a few rather surprising advantages – including:
- Abandoning paper makes customers happier. Particularly so, if they do no longer have to complete paper-based forms.
- Eliminating paper adds months to your life because there is no more need to search for lost items. Reportedly, people do that 10 minutes per day on average.
- Ditching paper makes life more peaceful. Even more so if you no longer need to struggle to read someone else’s indecipherable handwriting.
The Warehouse is a perfect playground
It may not yet be possible to completely remove paper from modern workplaces. As a matter of fact, there is no need to commit 100 percent to the paperless notion. And some of the above claims may have to stand the test of real-life operations. That is for sure. But going paperless can surely help leverage untapped potentials. The warehouse is a perfect playground to demonstrate that.
In that sense, wearable technology can enable a giant leap forward in the ambition to reduce as much paper as possible from the work environment. Moreover, ergonomic design can maximize both performance and worker comfort – meaning that introducing new technology into the workforce can be a seamless process.
With wearable technology, unnecessary and tiring repetitive actions undertaken by the workforce can be significantly reduced, as well as accuracy improved exponentially, thus increasing the volume of work undertaken by each worker – completely transforming productivity and efficiency. Not only that, but by reducing paper in the workplace, organizations can make great strides towards addressing their impacts on the environment.
