Everything is shifting to electronic format, yet our desks, file cabinets and storage spaces are still filled with paper. How do we reduce the paper records we have already created? In this session, you will learn about a practical approach to going "paper-lite." Five years ago, our mid-sized law firm shifted to a "paper-lite" records environment and reduced our onsite physical records storage by 90% as part of an office move. You will learn about the successes and challenges we encountered as we convinced users of the need for change, developed scanning procedures, reviewed records for disposition, and established new records management guidelines. You will also learn how the move to "paper-lite" has changed our workplace and how the lessons learned from this project shaped our roll-out of new initiatives.
