4 KEY BENEFITS OF GOING PAPERLESS
1) You Save Money
You will instantly save money by going paperless. To begin with, multi part NCR forms are not cheap. Not only do they cost .15 to .25 each but they also require labor to print, envelopes to mail and of course, postage. This total can easily reach $1.50 -$2.00 per service call or $300-$400 per month per technician. But that's just part of the story. By eliminating one trip to the office a day, you can easily add over 20 service calls a month per tech. At a average of $75 per stop that can work out to over $1,500 per month in added revenue. With these savings your investment in hardware and software can easily pay for itself in just a few months. While increasing your professional image.
2) You Help the Environment
You will be preserving our environment and save a lot of "green". Printers, toner, ink, paper, postage and the labor involved adds up to thousands of dollars per year. Please consider the following facts about paper:
- The average office worker wastes 10,000 pieces of paper each year
- It takes 13 ozs. of water to process a single piece of paper
- The average tree only produces 16.7 reams of paper
- This translates to over 178 million trees per year that are no longer part of the eco system
- Most discarded paper ends up in a landfill
3) Improved Customer Service
With orders, contacts and inspections all digitally stored in WDI FX you can handle company growth and maintain consistent customer service. Quick PDF conversion allows you to send documents to clients in seconds. Referral agents are no longer willing to wait for you to return to the office to fax a copy of a termite report. When an agent asks if you can email a report and your answer is "No", then YOU ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS BUT JUST DON'T REALIZE IT YET! The ability to take orders & send copies from the field means better service to your clients and more volume for you.
