Laptop scanners are incredible devices that can dramatically lighten ones workload, both metaphorically and physically. A digital filing system can allow for the backup and consolidation of hard copy receipts, documents, business cards and other paperwork. Laptop scanners and other similar portable scanners could be taken anywhere, which makes them ideal for people with little office space or that have a job that requires them to travel frequently.
Laptop scanners could be used in a number of ways that could save money and increase efficiency. Price Waterhouse Cooper recently said that a typical business makes 19 copies of every single document, spends around $20 in labor to file each one, spends $120 in labor searching for every one misfiled, loses one of every 20, and spends an amazing 25 hours recreating every lost document. By scanning things into a business card reader, the lost hours and cash could be dramatically reduced.
Laptop scanners could also help to reduce a companies paper usage. According to InfoTrends, some estimates put the number of business documents that are copied, faxed or printed annually in the United States at over 1.019 trillion. Using laptop scanners could allow one to store crucial info into a cloud system, or online. Files that are stored in this manner can be accessed from almost anywhere, which eliminates the need for a worker to be able to physically access them. Read more: www.neat.com
