Is your business ready to undergo a

digital transformation?

Whilst many businesses are at the beginning of their digital transformational journey, CIO’s have yet to invest in digital and analytics programs, and with 2020 around the corner, digital transformation is fast becoming the top priority for those who are falling behind.

According to IDC, 85% of enterprise decision-makers say they have a time frame of two years to make significant in-roads into digital transformation or they will fall behind their competitors and suffer financially.

In the EU, a significant 87% of businesses now expect to do business digitally.  Going paperless longer a standalone sustainability initiative, it’s expected, and moreover the financial benefits of making the switch are evident.

The average enterprise wastes $2.5m-$3.5m per year just searching for information and re-creating lost documents. Here at Duuzra, we are committed to helping our clients make the switch seamlessly.

With an all-in-one cloud-based content-driven platform, we’ve helped over 1.5M users to make the switch with grace.

8 reasons why moving to a paperless office rocks.

Reason to go paperless #1

Limitless storage

A cloud-based document storage system frees up your time and space whilst simplifying storage and retrieval. When we consider that every 12 filing cabinets require an additional employee to maintain, not to mention the number of lost documents they spend their valuable time searching for, making the switch suddenly becomes a storage haven.

Now your documents are securely stored in the cloud you can finally create more space in your office for those additional wellbeing initiatives.

Reason to go paperless #3

Dramatically reduced costs

The estimated cost of filing, storing and retrieving paper for US businesses is between $25bn and $35bn. From paper to printer ink, postage and maintenance, you may be surprised at how much you are spending.

Have you measured your own business printing costs? Not only does a paperless office reduce your stationery bill, but it also saves time, which in turn, translates to your bottom line.

Reason to go paperless #4

Greater security

Cloud storage is advocated by IT specialists the world over and for good reason. Your data is protected with encryption, meaning the front line of defense works to encode it’s users’ data to keep it safe and secure.

Whilst encryption is a ‘must-have’, you may also wish to choose additional 2-step authentication providing extra layers of security to keep your data on lockdown.

Reason to go paperless #5

Track your content journey

As our need for business intelligence increases, more and more businesses are looking to track where their content has gone and how many times, if any, it has been viewed.

Your paper documents do not allow for this.

Let’s imagine you’ve just put a few thousand dollars into a traditional marketing campaign; a company brochure to hand out to prospects. How do you know your brochures have been read? How do you measure the success of your campaign?

Reason to go paperless #6

Improved remote working

Going paperless also improves remote working. Now your content is all safely secured in the cloud, there’s little chance of a document going missing whilst visiting clients and customers.

You won’t need continuously edit, amend and print out each document. You can simply log into your cloud-based system and make the edits on the go, instantly available to send to your clients prior to the meeting.

Reason to go paperless #7

A happier customer and employee experience

With digital transformation being placed as a top priority for the majority of business leaders, those who have yet to switch are getting left behind. Paper transactions are considered slow, time-consuming and unreliable and now we are living in the digital age, our customers and employees expect quick, seamless experiences.

87% of EU businesses expect to do business digitally. By going paperless, you not only mitigate the risk of losing customers to the competition, you also improve your customer and employee experience.

Reason to go paperless #8

Corporate Social Responsibility pays off

We recently supported a financial event with a focus on sustainability. During the event, investors discussed having groups such as ‘extinction rebellion’ show up at their meetings, which to them, were considered ‘not so sustainable’.

The message was clear: Get down with the kids or lose money.
