Wednesday, November 12, 2014 by The eFax Team

A 2014 "Going Green" survey of small businesses using eFax's online faxing service found these customers are seeing big rewards — for their businesses and for the environment — from replacing their paper fax machines with the all-digital faxing solution from eFax.

GOING GREEN SAVES MONEY

Switching to online faxing can significantly and immediately reduce costs of printing, paper and other supplies, eFax customers have found.

$5,000 saved on printing in one month: "Literally in the first month of business we saved $5,000 in printing costs..." —Wesley B., Medical Factoring

Supply costs down 80%: "We have cut paper and ink supply costs by over 80% by receiving, processing and communicating with prospective tenants electronically vs. with hard copy documents." —Richard C., Property Management

 

GOING GREEN REDUCES WASTE

eFax customers explained that their move to faxing online cut down substantially on the amount of waste their offices produce.

30 reams vs 2 reams: "Our office cut its use down from 3 cases of paper (30 reams, 15,000 sheets) per year to about 2 reams (1,000 sheets) per year." —Andrew H., Insurance

Paper usage down 90%: "We decided to get rid of the 'old' fax machine and use eFax. It has cut our paper use down about 90%. It's great!" —Amanda, Auto Insurance

 

GOING GREEN INCREASES FREEDOM

Moving more of their businesses to the cloud, and depending less on large office hardware, has enabled many small businesses to save time and enjoy more freedom.

40% reduction in commuting time: "Having an in-home office enables me to work at home 2 days a week, which reduces my commute miles by 40%." — Tim C., Legal industry

Fewer trips to buy paper: "We use eFax for all outgoing and incoming faxes. We have not bought paper in 18 months!" —Beth A., Insurance

 

GOING GREEN SAVES THE PLANET

Of course, by implementing greener practices — such as recycling, reusing office paper, working from home, and moving their faxing to the cloud — these small businesses are also doing something valuable for our planet. They're saving trees, saving gasoline and sparing the environment the pollution that would come from those additional hours on the road.

10,000 sheets of paper: According to Reduce.org, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of standard copy paper each year.

47 hours of commute time: American workers spend an average of 47 hours per year commuting through rush-hour traffic.

23 billion gallons of gas: American workers use 23 billion gallons of gas each year in traffic.
