Like most of the world, we’ve been dreaming of a paperless office for years. After all, who likes dealing with paper? The business world is moving faster and faster and we are very much witnessing the transformation of a static workforce to a mobile workforce. We are no longer tied to our desks. Thanks to the internet and improvement in mobile technologies, people work on the go from anywhere in the world.
We want to help drive mass adoption of paperless document technologies. We believe the way to do this is to build amazing products that solve and improve every aspect of document workflow. We couple that with our passion for customer success and our meticulous attention to design and detail. We have an unwavering focus on security and mobile technology. Simply put, we are interested and excited about helping people Documo faster!
The world of technology changes fast. We live in the age of self driving cars, super-computers that fit in the palm of our hands and TVs that can roll onto walls like wallpaper. Yet, somehow, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper per year. The USA alone uses over 9 BILLION tons a year of paper at the expense of 4 billion trees. Even though we’ve been talking about the “paperless office” for decades now, the world uses more paper today than ever before.
Despite the US being a leading technology innovator, we are the world’s leader in paper consumption and waste. The loss of forests contribute between 12% and 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions. At the current rate of deforestation, it will take less than 100 years to destroy all the rainforests on earth.
We are team of technologists, goofballs, pranksters, and many other things. But first and foremost, we are parents, siblings, friends, and humans. We want to be a part of the solution. Help us reduce paper waste. Help us spread awareness about the destruction and over-consumption of Earth’s natural resources.
