Paperless printing is an intelligent document lifecycle management, cloud storage, and retrieval solution that Konica Minolta Gauteng is excited to introduce to all businesses looking to transform digitally and save on paper.
Yes, you read that correctly.
We are a winning brand in the printing industry that has found the perfect solution to bridge the gap between the digital and printing worlds. Paperless printing in the printing industry seems impossible, but the sky’s the limit with the launch of our intelligent system called iCabinet.
Printing remains an integral part of any business, so it is here to stay.
However, paperless printing will allow your business to expand its paper-saving capacity, reduce resources, speed up processes, make it easy to back-up data, and share surveys or invoices with customers.
Be the first to implement an efficient and effortless way to manage a filing cabinet that ensures your business processes run smoothly and holistically from anywhere in the world.
Why We Love Paperless Printing
It is nearly impossible for businesses to predict the actual costs of printing because so much goes into producing a single printed page. This includes the printer’s purchase (or lease) price, the cost of paper, ink cartridges, energy use, and the burden on your IT department.
In addition, there are environmental costs. Printing trends show that the average office worker generates roughly 10,000 sheets of paper each year. Yet 45% of printed documents end up in the trash the very same day (and 80% of the remaining sheets are never viewed again after being filed away).
Paperless printing will save businesses tons of money. Just think about all the paperwork that goes on in the front office of an organisation alone. Visitors may sign in, fill out forms, or ask for printed maps. Likewise, employees in reception may still photocopy identification documents, print out legal disclosures, and provide take-home documentation.
To be honest, a lot of this printing is unnecessary, especially at a time when Electronic Filing Cabinet Solutions digitise so much of this.
iCabinet Is The Transformation You Need
A paperless printing office provides a flexible and modern working practice to fit the remote working world we live in today.
Most businesses want to stay agile and mobile, moving offices when a better option arises. It is so much easier to transfer data digitally than to cart around reams of paper.
Digital storage makes it faster to retrieve documents and easier to back them up. Most office employees spend at least one day a week working remotely so being able to access documents in the cloud, or on the company server, makes their lives easier.
For international teams in different time zones, working in collaboration would be practically impossible if they relied on paper documentation. Yes, moving towards a paperless printing office means having to invest in more screens.
However, numerous academic studies show a rapid return on investment for a technology upgrade.

3. Save Time
In business, time equals money. The average office employee spends up to one-third of their day on printing, filing, and searching for misfiled or lost documents.
By implementing paperless printing with iCabinet, your business eliminates time-killing paper processes and allows staff to be more productive.
- It takes 20-30 minutes on average every day to search for documents.
- Up to 40% of total work time is spent handling documents.
- Over 20% of productivity is lost from document handling.
4. Cut Costs
An average office of 100 employees goes through approximately 1 million sheets of paper per year. All that paper, if not trashed, ends up in storage spaces or filing rooms that can cost your business a fortune throughout the year.
iCabinet’s services allow your business to eliminate repeated paper-related tasks, saving you valuable time, money, and expensive office real estate.
- Printing requires an R1,200.00 annual cost of paper per office employee.
- 1 – 3% of annual revenue is spent on printing costs.
- It costs companies an annual amount of R2 Trillion for printed forms.
5. Go Green
The paper that is not filed away gets tossed in the bin. Up to 70% of office waste is from paper and failed print jobs. Moreover, 60-80% of ink cartridges end up in landfills.
As a socially responsible company, we feel it is essential to reduce the amount of waste that is destroying our forests and polluting our environment.
Paperless printing is cheaper, faster, and better for our planet.
- It requires 10,000 sheets of average annual printouts per employee.
- Every ink cartridge takes 1,000 years to decompose.
- 4 billion annual trees are chopped to make paper.
