‘Paperless office’ has been a business buzzword for many years, but more and more businesses are adopting this approach in reality.
There are many reasons that businesses go paperless – the environmental impact, saving time and staff resources or the cost-savings of moving away from paper and printing. Going paperless has been proven to have a positive impact on all of these things.
Your staff will never waste time physically printing documents ever again. The huge costs of paper and printer equipment (including printer cartridges) will disappear and you’ll be helping save the environment. It’s a no-brainer to go partially or completely paperless in your business.
The easiest way to convert your documentation into digital files is to work with PDF files which is the best file type to use in business. PDF files were created for sharing documents easily and securely across all platforms. With the addition of new PDF apps to the marketplace the full potential to edit, manage and share files has been realised on desktop and, now, for remote working on mobile devices.

This infographic explains how much paper is wasted in the typical US office and the features of PDFelement that can help reduce that waste. Icons for each stat, benefit, and feature help to reduce the reliance on text. The color palette stays fairly consistent throughout except in cases of product features or imitating nature (such as the tree). Text is kept relatively limited throughout the design, but some feature descriptions get into paragraph territory. Be careful with representative data visualizations, such as in the "You'll Save" section -- it's hard for the viewer to judge at a glance whether the $120 pile is truly 6x larger than the $20 pile because of the way the coins are arranged and their scale. In all we'd give this a C+.
