[INFOGRAPHIC] Sustainable Digital Transformation

Posted by Ben Rabe on Jun 21, 2018 12:01:22 PM

Turning digital sounds easy but it comes with a lot of user adoption issues. Questions need to be asked such as the need for going digital.  Is it purely to conform or is there a genuine passion for making the business more sustainable.  At GO BPO we drive digital transformation because we believe in sustainability.

 

Managing your printing environment can help to reduce costs and immediately become more sustainable -.  Creating a culture of environmental awareness requires effort and constant management.  This can be driven through support and rewards programs. Reward with initiatives such as “greenest department” or “biggest cost savers” can encourage team effort and build excitement around becoming more sustainable.

 

Once the print environment has been addressed, the focus can shift to digital transformation by converting as much as you can into digital processes and data.  Making use of online forms rather than paper forms, allowing for digital signatures in your processes are a few examples of digitisation in the workplace.  This will give you the opportunity to become more efficient in workflows..

 

At GO BPO we focus on building strategies which allows for careful planning and commitment to an achievable route map to becoming more sustainable.
