Going Green

Written by Ritwik Ruia Monday, 21 October 2013 07:06

Going green is the new imperative, and executives worldwide are looking for ways to reduce the impact of their organizations on the environment. ECM technologies are uniquely positioned to meet this challenge, yet need to be implemented in a cohesive fashion, taking into account the specific capabilities of the various parts of the ECM toolkit. Scanning alone may provide a small part of the solution, but needs to be coupled with other ECM components in order for the full benefits to be achieved.



The environmental benefits of ECM can be felt in all aspects of this challenge:

  • Reducing carbon emissions
  • Minimizing usage of paper and other potentially finite resources
  • Limiting fossil fuel usage
  • Decreasing environmental waste

 

To implement all ECM components and to achieve associated environmental benefits is a major project and it will need to be undertaken in a carefully planned and implemented manner. A strategy should be developed and adopted, and include all major stakeholders. This is a challenge that cannot be left to a single department, but rather must become a key driver throughout the organization.

The benefits are not limited to the environment impact. These measures will also save cost, provide better efficiencies and potentially a more satisfying working environment for staff members. “Going Green” should become a way of life, and the ECM toolkit is a critical part of that future reality.
