Is it possible for a meeting to be 100% paperless?
Since Apple rung in the age of the tablet when they launched the iPad in 2010, this is the question businesses all over the world have been asking themselves, with varying degrees of simplicity.
Whilst it’s true that tablets have made it easier for organisations to share their documents digitally, the “Print” button still has to be pressed from time-to-time. Indeed, many are still not fully trusting of a digital meeting solution and would much prefer to have a hard copy of their information in front of them.
However, we live in an age where the pressure on organisations to reduce their paper output is intensifying as global warming becomes an ever more important factor in corporate life. The technology and the tools for a paperless environment are there, so why is paper consumption still increasing at a yearly rate of 2-3% worldwide? What is to be done?
At Astech, we firmly believe we have the solution that can set your organisation on the road to a paperless environment as well as one that is streamlined and stress-free.
While there is a lot of software currently on the market to allow meetings to be paperless, we can go the extra mile for our clients with CMIS. You can create, co-ordinate and publish your agendas, reports and minutes quickly, easily and securely.
Not only that, but you can do those things through your own personalised control panel and on the move with MyCMIS.
You can have all the information you need without a sheet of paper in sight and turn the often painstaking process of preparing for a meeting into one that takes a matter of minutes.
Of course, the switch to paperless will come as a bit of a culture shock to most, if not all organisations at first. After all, paper has been a staple of modern life for many years, so how can making such a big change be so simple?

There may be bumps in the road, but the Support team are always on the end of a phone to set you back on the straight and narrow path.
So, let’s return to the original question: Is it possible for a meeting to be 100% paperless.
Many would say no, but with CMIS, we are striving every day to make to answer a resounding “yes”.
