Posted by Zack Nimtz on 10/10/16 4:09 PM


Encouraging responsible behaviors in the workforce is not as challenging as it may seem. There are small steps you can take using PaperCut that will have a big impact on your Return On Investment (RIO). As an added bonus for you, these behaviors can translate into big bucks for running your business. 

When it comes to safeguarding valuable data, responsible behaviors in the workforce would include monitoring print volumes, document security using print releases (especially prints obtaining confidential information), and managing waste.

Enforcing policies that encourage these responsible behaviors also play a huge role in the success of your business productivity and longevity.

Here are ways you can start encouraging responsible printing accountability behaviors within your business document workflows (hey, we know how busy you are) …
