Could the Pandemic Finally Make Paperless Systemic? DocLink Unlocks the Door of the Paperless Office

Adobe introduced the PDF (Portable Document Format) in 1993, and our quest for the paperless office began. Now, nearly 30 years later, we’re edging ever closer to the goal, thanks to a boost from an unusual ally. The coronavirus pandemic caused global demand for paper to fall sharply as remote work and electronic communication became the norm. Indeed, the U.S. saw production of office paper decline more than 30% in 2020.

The reality is that technology advances had already dramatically reduced the need to print a piece of paper — years before the pandemic struck. We can scan, archive, tag, search, sign, collate, edit, annotate, share, and collaborate using electronic versions (usually a PDF) of virtually any office document. Whether we “credit” the pandemic or not — systemic paperlessness sounds good to us — and DocLink by Altec goes a long way to getting us there.
