How do you hit the ground running as a new business and satisfy your customers while still being friendly to the environment?
As a new business with a focus on servicing other businesses, this is the challenge we are facing right now. How can we deliver corporate registry services while staying eco-conscious? In an industry that relies on Reflex, it can be hard to devise processes to help reduce the impact your business has on the environment, no matter how small your business may be. More and more companies are moving towards becoming (or trying to, at least) paperless offices. In the corporate registry sector alone, hundreds of reams of paper are consumed each day, and that’s not taking into account all the consumables for printers and photocopies, either. Company registers, Constitutions, Trust Deeds, Superannuation Fund Deeds, changes and variations, updates. Everything is printed, signed and filed away to (mostly) never been seen again. The term paperless is still a strange one at this stage since most things that require signatures still need someone to print the document out onto paper, sign it in ink and hand it over to verify its originality. We aren’t quite able to be completely paperless…yet. However, digital signatures are slowly becoming more accepted. As technology evolves, so too do the requirements and accepted standards set out by government bodies and corporate industry. Eventually digital signatures will be the norm and signing something with a pen will be a thing of the past. Until that stage, however, we can eliminate as many of those pesky pieces of paper as possible by providing exactly what you need, without the fluff and bother that some providers provide. Stay tuned to this blog to find out more about our plans to change the face of corporate registrations for good!
