Online Databases :
The use of a company wide online database is one of the easiest ways for companies to oversee employees progress while remaining paperless. Everyone would have access to the database and these databases can often allow the writer to upload there content for consistent review by editors. Not only will this make your desk appear cleaner but it will also help communication become more efficient because editors can access the writers work at their leisure and the writer can submit their work at their leisure, as well.
Tablets and Apps :
Apps can be downloaded on many different types of technology and are usually not specific to a certain operating system. This means that, as a writer, you can download apps to help you get your work done. This can be anything from an office suite that will allow you to type, to speaking to a dictation app to help you get all your ideas written down with out being phased by typing for yourself. If this is going to be one of the ways that you go paperless, it is best to have your own tablet or other portable device and not share with a family member or use it for entertainment related activities. Finding apps specific to your needs can be simple, especially considering how many different apps have been developed and are available in the marketplace.
Online Filing Accessible From Any Technology :
Making your writing more organized may be as simple as organizing your ideas and finished products with an online filing system. The great thing about keeping an online system is that it will allow you to search for files by names or key words. This can come in handy if you are looking for past things you have brainstormed about but not written about already. It also keeps everything in one place, that can be accessed from any technology at any time, meaning you can begin writing at a computer and then finish writing using a tablet.
It is easy for you to become unorganized when there are countless amounts of paper sitting around everywhere. However, upgrading to some of the available technologies can provide you with a quick fix and help increase the quality of what you are writing.
