A 2013 Paperless Campaign has formed, urging small businesses to go paperless in the new year. Google Drive, HelloFax, Manilla, HelloSign, Expensify, Xero and Fujitsu ScanSnap are the companies that make up the Paperless Coalition, and the purpose of their campaign is to “remove the need for paper from paperwork.”
Besides promoting their own tools to help businesses go paperless, the Coalition will be regularly sending out tips and hacks on paperless working via a monthly newsletter, and more regular tweets. Although little information has yet come out from the campaign on exactly what type of information they’ll be sending out, we’re sure much of it will revolve around the types of services the companies in the campaign focus on: paperless billing, accounting software, digital document signing, cloud computing, etc. The promotions that are sure to come from the campaign could get frustrating, but the tips and general information on shifting away from paper co-dependence could still prove valuable to any small business that has made it a goal in 2013 to cut back on office costs, or paper use.
