It found that scanning is helping firms cut costs and improve sustainability, while also making storing and sharing documents more efficient, as this infographic shows.

* This infographic is based on the results of two online surveys, targeting employees and managers of firms with 5 - 500 employees, conducted by Censuswide in May 2018.
To gather representative data from this diverse sector, a broad cross section of 408 adult employees in either clerical, manual (skilled or unskilled) or graduate entry level positions answered a 21-question survey, while 404 adult managers in junior, middle or senior management, or in director-level, business owner or C-suite positions answered a 20-question survey.
