Save Paper And Manage Your Office Wirelessly

Updated on November 29, 2011

Many businesses are starting to notice how much paper that they use within a normal business day. Not only is the cost of paper expensive, using so much is a waste and bad for the planet. Fortunately, there are ways for your office to go “green” and stop using so much paper.

Wireless Offices

The first step in going green will be to set up a wireless network for your office. This wireless network will allow all employees within the office to communicate through a network seamlessly. It is important to make sure that the network is set up in a secure manner.

Wireless networks will require ongoing management. Over time your business will need to consider monitoring the network, conducting security audits and upgrading the infrastructure of the system equipment in order to keep pace.

While this may seem like a lot of work, if the network is managed properly it is fairly easy and will allow you to communicate with all of your employees in a paperless fashion. This is convenient, easy and overall will save you money as there will be less paper used. This also means that there will be no more lost files or paperwork to deal with.

Project Management Software

When setting up your paperless office, you will also want to consider using project management software. Project management software will allow you to plan, schedule, manage a budget, allocate resources, communicate and conduct quality management over large projects.

There are several types of project management software that can be used to set up your wireless office. The first is desktop software that will run on each individual’s desktop. Web-based software can be used as a web application that is accessed through either an intranet, extranet or by using a web browser.

There is personal project management software available that is typically used by someone for their home. A single user system can be used if there is only going to be one particular person that will need to plan and edit a project all at once.

Collaborative software will allow different users the ability to change different sections of the project at the same time. This can be the best option for a large project in which there are different people working on various aspects of the project as a whole.

Overall, these practices, and many, many more will help you to become a greener business. And don't we all want to be around in another hundred years? (Ok, maybe not us, exactly, but our civilization as a whole...)
