SURVEY: Does Your Publishing Company Still Rely on Paper-based Internal Systems?

Paper is pervasive in publishing and implementing an all-digital operating system is costly. Tell us where you stand in the transition from paper to digital-based systems.

The paperless office is still something of a dream.

Granted, implementing new software and hardware operating systems is extremely costly — a hundred million dollars or more for the largest companies — and is an ongoing process. But tell us, does your publishing company, large or small, in the US or international, still rely on some form of paper-based internal management system? Take the survey below!
