Companies incur challenges when balancing the needs of their business with the impact on the environment.
In terms of document redaction, manual techniques have been relied upon for years. This involves photocopying the original document before physically altering the second (or sometimes third) copy using a marker pen.
To manually redact a 4-page form, a company photocopies it 3 times. The first copy is wasted due to the pen pressure marks and the second is used to pick up the marker pen content. That’s 12 pages printed for each form.
If that same organisation processes 10,000 forms per year and prints 12 pages of paper per form that’s 120,000 pages printed in total!
