The thing is, we index the scans, and throw away the hard copies. Thus, we go through 2-3 reems of paper a day, and then throw it all away.
I decided to make it my goal to end this waste, and did some looking:
We go to the buyer's website and they have a list of POs. I check a few boxes, hit "print selected" and it pulls up all of the selected documents in a PDF file.
First question: anyone know of a way to separate these files without going through the whole process to pull each one up in a separate document? This can be done, but it takes a while longer.
Secondly: the indexing system can only store pictures, so the PDFs cannot be indexed. This is the big problem. The first one can be ignored/worked around, but this is a big problem.
Any other opinions are appriciated.
I just think that wasting paper, ink, staples, and time in the office is pointless, now that we can do everything digitally!"
