Are you ready to break up with paper? Going paperless can be a game-changer for your business, enabling your team to reduce clutter, collaborate better and enhance productivity.
To get the most from going paperless, you’ll want to have the right tools in place. Here are our top recommendations for apps that will help you make the leap.
1. Adobe Scan
When you go paperless, you’ll want to have a system to take the paper that crosses your desk (business cards, receipts, training materials etc.) and make it digital. That’s where a scanning app like Adobe Scan comes in handy: it transforms your mobile device into a scanner so that you can capture information wherever you are. As well as capturing documents, it can scan a whiteboard, capture a form (and then make it easy to fill and digitally sign), and gather info from business cards to quickly sync to your contacts.
If you want to go fully paperless, it’s time to replace your paper notebook with a digital option. If you own an iPad and a stylus, consider downloading GoodNotes. It’s a note-taking app with powerful functionalities such as the ability to search your handwriting and easy conversion of handwritten notes to text. You can also import PDFs to annotate as you read. If you don’t want to be locked into an iOS-only app, consider other popular note-taking apps such as Notion, Evernote or OneNote.
Say goodbye to the laborious process of printing a contract, signing it, scanning it, then emailing it back. Instead, use HelloSign to electronically request and add e-signatures to everything from employee contracts, business deals, NDAs, and more. HelloSign also integrates with the other apps you use to organize your business, including Salesforce and Dropbox (who just bought them).
4. Google Drive
One of our top picks for the paperless office is something you probably already have: Google Drive. To experience the full benefits of going paperless, you’ll want to store your documents so that you can access them across your devices and wherever you are.
