Todevelop other means of office documentation, Sellen, & Harper,(2003) explains that a lot has been going on behind the scene to drawup a system where papers will be rendered useless in the daily officeoperations. Therefore, the consequence of the whole research is theintroduction of the “paperless office.” Likewise, York (2005),the main essence of this paper is to explain how efficient theworking of paperless technology is. Furthermore, the article willmention some of the introduced technological programs that havefacilitated the paperless office technology. Moreover, the paper willaddress the advantages of having a paperless office at our disposal.
Accordingto Alcott, (2005) and Norman, & Nielsen, (2010) argument, thepaperless office is a technology where all the information is kept inthe database. The technology ensures that the information can easilybe saved and retrieved any time it is required. Richard York in thesecond pdf also explains that the use of paperless office is the bestalternative method of preserving our natural resources such as theforest. Use of the paperless office ensures smooth flow of theinformation through the internet and other online means.
Onthe other hand, Hittingh, (2001) explains that paperless office canreduce complex operations into simple operations. The overallworkflow becomes efficient in that the workflow software directsdocuments to required persons. The information cycle can also ensuresinstant feedback of the information. Online platforms such as theintranet enable the provision of efficient services such asweb-browsers that boost the sharing of the information betweendifferent individuals.
Thetechnology has several merits and demerits according to Auditore andRubin (2001), the paper explores how technology eliminates the use ofthe papers that mainly pollute the office. More so, the large volumesof the files in the office are removed by the technology.
Conclusively,the technology ensures permanent storage of the data in office recordkeeping. Besides, the technology seems to be the best option to havebeen achieved ever in the world of invention considering its manyadvantages.
