As the UK Government unveils its roadmap to plan and deliver a national recovery, we look at ways how we can help to get the country not only moving but operating faster and more efficiently.
The impact of Covid-19 on the economy and society has been significant. This is evidenced by the latest data showing that the UK economy shrank by 9.9% in 2020, as the pandemic and associated public health restrictions drove the largest annual fall in UK GDP on record.
Docuflow applauds the UK Government’s commitment to build back better, not only by working with global partners as the disease moves from a pandemic to an endemic state, but also by supporting key public services and investing in infrastructure.
Yesterday’s UK Government roadmap is just one of a series of plans to help bolster the economy. It works in tandem with ‘The Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution’, another government initiative published in November 2020.
This 10 point plan details proposals how to build back better, support the green agenda and accelerate the nation’s path to net zero. (Here comes the science bit. Net zero is the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount of greenhouse gas removed from the atmosphere. Net zero is achieved when the amount we add is less than the amount removed.)
Pre-pandemic, you might be forgiven in thinking that the government target of achieving carbon neutrality of net zero by 2050 was over-ambitious.
However this past year has seen businesses embrace digital transformation to such an extent that blended working (where people work from home and remotely) is now seen as the norm.
In a post-Covid world, accomplishing carbon neutrality of net zero is not only achievable but lauded too via digital transformation.
As more people work remotely (in April 2020, 46.6% of employed people worked from home), you might be exploring ways to streamline how your business operates.
One such business function is your mail operation that can be outsourced and replaced by the swift and simple implementation of Digital Mailrooms to save you precious time and money.
Until the time when technology has developed to such an extent and every individual and organisation accepts that they no longer require printed documents, there will continue be a need for posted documents.
Docuflow mail solutions can help to improve processes and drive down costs associated with traditional mail operations and procedures.
