Why Your Business Should Embrace the Cloud

Eco-Office Gals

Beyond that expense you’ll also save money on not buying printers, copiers, fax machines (and fax lines) and a boatload of toner. Some companies set up elaborate internal servers on site.

We’ve long hailed the benefits of going paperless as a way to decrease your company’s carbon footprint.

I waited to get the correct fax and when I saw it was a simple error of putting the wrong fax number in, I had no problem ripping up the other fax she had sent.
