Sustainable efficiency: Parashift’s AI-powered document processing is your gateway to sustainable business processes

“All roads lead to Rome” – this could also be said of companies on their mission for more sustainability and carbon reduction. While implementing sustainable methods may require a combination of new strategies with different technologies, intelligent automation has emerged as one of the key factors: Nowhere is the cost-benefit ratio as optimal. Intelligent automation also includes document processing, which is fundamental to sustainable business processes.

Continued environmental impact due to manual document processing

Hardly anyone claims that the manual processing of business documents is the main cause of environmental pollution. Rather, the deforestation of huge areas mainly in the Amazon region, in Scandinavia and in Russia for paper production and the resulting leakage of large quantities of CO2 are the main contributors. However, the paper manufacturers themselves (even though there is now a positive trend towards greater sustainability) must also continue to take at least some responsibility for air, water and soil pollution.

In addition to the considerable energy consumption for paper production, however, paper consumption in everyday business and the manual processing of paper documents must not be forgotten. Thus, it is both paper consumption and document management that not only pollute the environment, but at the same time make primary business processes inefficient and expensive. This approach does not speak to sustainability in these fundamental processes. The problem, however, is that the paperless enterprise that has been predicted for years is not yet a reality even today (with some exceptions). And whether that will change in the foreseeable future is debatable.

Fact is, companies today have to process their business-relevant documents to a large extent digitally on the one hand, but still in paper format on the other. This process is therefore neither sustainable nor environmentally friendly for companies, and certainly not cost-effective:

Paper documents – Documents are received physically by mail and must be digitized. This is done by scanning the documents or by manually typing the data into an ERP system. The documents are then mostly archived digitally and physically.

Digital documents – Documents are received through various digital channels. For signatures, to accompany goods, or for completion, digital documents are often still printed – before they end up back in the shredder.

Printers – Printers and photocopiers require toner and maintenance, which can have a significant impact on the environment and costs, depending on the size of the business.

As briefly mentioned at the beginning, intelligent document capture and processing automation initiatives can demonstrate an excellent cost-benefit ratio. And with Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), you also get the best solution for both worlds: a powerful system that lets you automatically capture and process both your paper-based and your digital documents conveniently, efficiently and sustainably.

Document processing with AI as a catalyst for change

Thanks to intelligent automation solutions such as Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), companies can now use efficient systems to minimize environmental impact while realizing their sustainability goals (or at least part of them). IDP combines advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technologies into one system to generate positive, powerful impacts. And the impact of IDP on businesses and with respect to their sustainability initiatives is indeed multifaceted:

Minimize paper consumption, dissolve archives – IDP automates the capture, classification, extraction, processing and secure storage of business-relevant data from paper documents. This allows physical archives to be digitized with IDP and gradually dissolved.

Print and copy, goodbye – With IDP, workflows can be automated so that employees have access to relevant data anytime, anywhere. No more unnecessary printing or copying.

Increased efficiency – With IDP, document-based processes are simplified and accelerated. At the same time, manual data entry and processing is reduced to an absolute minimum. This makes for more sustainable processes.

Reduced carbon footprint – With significantly less paper and the automation of central business processes, IDP from the cloud helps to reduce the carbon footprint.
