Why Do Paperless Offices Need a Scheduled Shredding Service?

It starts as a simple idea. Increase productivity, time management, working from home and shared networks, cut down on the expense of printers, toner and paper. The contents of the office filing cabinets are scanned and a one-time purge booked with PROSHRED®. The IT guys have worked their magic with cloud sharing and server back-ups, but . . . your staff still like to print, mark-up and hold paper.

If, like many of your more experienced staff, you are used to handling paper or suffer eyestrain and burn-out when looking too long at a computer screen, you will still print out documents on paper. Support work is often handled on paper. In addition, much research has found that people retain more from reading from paper they are handling than from reading from a screen or tablet. This results in printed paper. It may not be as much as before, and you may no longer need to scan it back into your system, but it is still sitting there on desks, unsecured. The problem is . . .  there is no longer a system for storing, for filing, for security and preventing an information breach.
