Minimize Paper Waste, Increase Security and Efficiency with Electronic Filing as Primary File System


The Government has already paid for systems (so technically free) specifically designed to scan virtually all of our documents into so that we have copies of important files on hand at all times, we don't "lose" hundreds of files every year and we don't have to keep thousands of pages of paper sitting at our desks.


However with all those advantages, paper files are still the primary filing method for some incomprehensible reason. Utilize the electronic system we most likely paid quite a bit of the tax payers money just for that purpose and save a million trees a year plus all the nifty ancillary benefits like ease of use, enhanced security and increased efficiency!!
