Paperless Ideas for Small Businesses

Many small businesses have mountains of paperwork to file and the task of organizing, filing, and archiving can take away from growing the business. Coupled with the costs of off-site storage, managing the information can become a job within itself. One way a small business can cut down on the costs and time managing their data is to embrace technology and go to a paperless filing system.

The first step is to stop receiving paper statements from your bank and credit card companies. The statements can typically be downloaded and saved as a PDF file. For archiving and sharing those files (with your accountant) and others be sure to check out Microsoft Office Live Workspace and Windows Live SkyDrive. The tools are free and may help small businesses cut down on the time it takes to organize their important information.
