Despite the name similarity being purely coincidental, Circularo as a digital transformation solution for paperless initiatives fits perfectly into the framework of efficiency and sustainability which are some of the key concepts in a circular economy.
What is circular economy and why it matters
Circular economy is an economic model designed to combat the currently employed inefficient and unsustainable take-make-dispose model, also sometimes called linear economy, in order to eliminate waste and pollution as well as protect finite resources and shift the focus towards renewable ones.
According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, circular economy can be defined by these three principles:
- Design out waste and pollution
- Keep products and materials in use
- Regenerate natural systems
Circular economy employs reusing, recycling, repurposing, sharing, and, of course, digital transformations to achieve the desired circle of consumption with minimal resource input, waste, pollution, and carbon emissions. When employed, the aim is not just to mitigate environmental damage, but to also create business opportunities as well as societal benefits in the process.
Circularo and its place in a circular economy
Despite the name similarity being purely coincidental, Circularo as a digital transformation solution for paperless initiatives has always been a part of the “Designing out waste and pollution” pillar of circular economy.
Naturally, the main and most logical environmental benefit of making the switch to digital document management and archiving is the amount of paper saved. For large organizations that deal with lots of red tape and paperwork, that amount is far from small.
It is not solely about paper though – it is a whole new paradigm of how we work and do business. Eliminating the need to commute to the office daily or to a meeting means even more positive impact on the environment, as it reduces the carbon footprint of individuals and organizations significantly.
But a more sustainable approach towards document lifecycles isn’t the only perk of going paperless with Circularo.
One benefit of many
Apart from actively participating in the circular economy, switching from paper to Circularo will impact you, your business, and the environment in many positive ways:
Preparing, signing, archiving, and organizing paper documents takes time that could be spent on more productive tasks.
Going digital improves efficiency, saving you money in the process.
Help the environment
It is much more sustainable to switch to a paperless office and it eliminates the need to physically commute to sign documents as well.
Physical documents are hard to track and hard to verify for their authenticity. Paper can get lost or destroyed without anyone noticing. Plus, it is challenging to monitor access to sensitive paper documents.
Circularo gets rid of these security threats for you.
Digital documents can be accessed from anywhere at any time. You can act faster and respond immediately when necessary.
“Circularo paperless benefits are not only about environmental impact by reducing paper consumption. More importantly, we provide a better way to conduct important business activities like signing agreements and verifying important documents online in an easy and secure way.“
– Josef Neumann, CEO of Circularo
Business agility and responsiveness, along with the ability to respond promptly from anywhere, are also key components of remote working initiatives, ensuring that everyone can do their job remotely in an efficient manner and spend more time on things that truly matter.
