The Information Explosion
We are in the middle of an information explosion. Information now
doubles every 2.5 years. There will soon be over 5 billion web pages
on the internet-one for every person on the planet. With new government
regulations and increased legal risks, the burden of information
processing continues to increase. We truly live in an information
Documents Turn Information
So how do we make sense of all of this information? We do it with
documents. Documents turn information into knowledge. Whether word
processing documents, spreadsheets, invoices, memo or even web pages,
documents help us make sense of the amazing amounts of information.
A recent study by ALL Associates* showed that on average a surprising
15% of an organization's revenue is spent on document production,
management and distribution. Of that cost, 75% was related to the
management and end user production time associated with documents
The bad news is that it's getting
worse. Prints per employee are rising at 10% per year. Use of color
is increasing and printing is now 80% of document output. On top
of this, additional burdens are placed on a workforce that has to
manage both paper and digital documents.
The good news is that there are strategies that can improve productivity
and lower cost.
- Workflow Optimization:
The goal is to streamline the flow of information through critical
business processes. Workflows are analyzed with the goal of
reducing friction and decreasing the total cost.
- Print Optimization: The
goal is to lower print output costs by at least 30% through
managing printer assets and directing print jobs to the most
cost effective and productive print devices.
