Companies around the world are going paperless. Ledgers and balance sheets are now digital. Filing returns and paying taxes have become convenient to edit online. Virtual reporting is much easier than paper trails. Soft copies of literature are portable, user friendly and much easier to manage than stacks of files. There are plenty of reasons to shun paper, even when it comes to those queuing tickets. Don’t print those paper tickets any more, however small or short they may be.
The first reason why you shouldn’t print those queuing tickets is – you guessed it – because they are simply not eco friendly. There are hundreds of studies that have documented the rampant degradation of our environment over the years for the want of paper. The carbon footprint is increasing astronomically. While there are certain green measures every company cannot endorse or initiate, going paperless is not only possible but more effective and rewarding.
Going paperless will ultimately save you money. Go ahead and calculate the costs of all the rolls of paper you use to print the tickets. Depending on the scale of your business, it would amount to a few hundred pounds a year. Some companies spend thousands of pounds a year on just one branch; let alone the statewide or nationwide need. You can save this money.
What do you do with the tickets you print? For the time being, you have to save them. You may also keep a stock of the tickets for a certain period of time for reference. This requires space. You are paying for this space. Not only would you save space in your branch or head office, but you would also save money.
Let’s accept one reality. Tickets are not effective. They were useful, once, and that’s it. Years ago they were essential, nowadays, they are just a waste of time, money and resources. They are difficult to manage, messy and chaotic and laborious to file. Some businesses often need more than one employee just to take care of those endless tickets. A waste of time, labour and expense.
