Charlottesville Solutions is a Green Business

What do I mean by this?

When we opened the doors at Solutions, two years ago, I had a few simple rules for myself and our agents. One of the most important rules was “never hand me a piece of paper“.

The story actually started several years ago. I wrote a blog post in Aug of 2009 that I titled “I want a paperless office, am I wrong?

Back then, I was already using digital signatures and electronic communication, but the challenge was that others needed to accept communication in this form.

At first this was a little difficult, but with a little help from technology and with the continual acceptance of digital signatures, I am proud to say that, at Solutions we are still a paperless office.

One of our agents recently commented on this subject by saying this

I can’t imagine how much MORE paper I would have in my office if we didn’t do this!  I’m glad we’re on the leading edge

SIDE NOTE: I actually turned off my Fax number several years ago. Whenever I have someone, or some firm, ask me for my fax number, I cringe a little.

Let’s all save a tree, go paperless, go green!

DEFINITION: The paperless office was a publicist‘s slogan, meant to describe the office of the future. The basic idea was that office automation would make paper redundant for routine tasks such as record-keeping and bookkeeping. The idea came to prominence with the introduction of the personal computer
