I want to go paperless and be more mobile

At Katalyst, we love cloud software. It means we can work from anywhere, at any time, and share data securely with our clients and other professionals, such as accountants.

It also means that we can be totally paperless – a pretty impressive feat if you consider that paperwork is our bread and butter! As members of the Sustainable Business Network, we’ve worked hard to implement sustainable office management practices in our business. We’re confident we can help you achieve this same level of environmental commitment in your business too.

Can you give me some tips for going paperless?

No problem! Here are some strategies that we’ve implemented in our business, which will work for almost any organisation:

• Send your invoices out by email
• Ask suppliers to email their invoices
• Securely shred and sustainably reuse any hard copies you receive (in our case, no shredded paper from our business or our clients’ businesses enter the recycling system!)

For more information about going paperless, check out the website of our sister business, Cloud Office. There you’ll find a hand FAQ page, along with a blog that features sustainable business news.

What is cloud software, and how can it help me go paperless?

Simply put, ‘cloud’ software is software that is hosted online. That means the system can be accessed from anywhere that the internet is available. Whether you’re in the office, at a client’s site, at home or on holiday, you can log on and view or update your information.
