UBC Reports | Vol. 54 | No. 4 | Apr. 3, 2008

Letter to the Editor

I am writing to tell you how inspired we were by the article by Basil Waugh, “Going paperless: here’s how it’s done” in the February UBC Reports.

I am the Manager of Logistics here at UBC, and in our Courier and Freight division we were printing from 800 to 1,000 sheets of paper, double-sided, every month.

We had the additional tasks and costs of sorting, filing and storing the documentation.

I am thrilled to report that we no longer print. We worked with our wonderful IT support team, set up a dedicated drive, and now we sort, file and store our files electronically.

The integrity of the data is better, the ability to retrieve data is more efficient and the total cost for me was $52. This has been a very affordable investment, not to mention the wonderful feeling of doing our part in reducing our impact on energy, resources, and the planet.
