No company wants to be in the business of losing money, yet there are so many that don’t realize the cost-saving potential of a regularly scheduled records management service.
So says DeAnne Toto’s cover story on Blue-Pencil President Mario Skopek in the November issue of Storage and Destruction Business.
The feature article offered an in-depth look into Skopek’s path to entrepreneurship—a drive he gained from his father—and how Blue-Pencil aims to revolutionize the document management industry through “providing a paper-free office solution that continues to cut, delete and eliminate their paper records.”
Passion for the value that a regular documents management system offers is what drove Skopek to found Blue-Pencil with his father in 2004. With a history of working in document shredding, Skopek has focused his years of expertise into creating the best value-adds for Blue-Pencil’s expanded on-site shredding services, and off-site secure records storage.
With a focus on best-practises, the Blue-Pencil team can “quantify what bad records management means”, showing clients cost-saving potentials of up to $11,000 annually in some cases. Blue-Pencil also easily demonstrates the cost-saving potential of its shredding services versus office shredding with the online cost calculator available on its website.
Now a decade into the business, off-site secure records storage and management is one of the key assets for the company, providing its 8,000 customers with security and efficiency with value-added propositions.
At the forefront of the “paper-free evolution”, Blue-Pencil has no doubt embraced digital information management, focusing on providing electronic records management as opposed to traditional hard-copy storage, as well as document imaging and online backup services, says the article.
2015 is already gearing up to be a great year for Blue-Pencil. With its document management division in full steam, already showing results with its full-circle, comprehensive solutions for physical and electronic document management, and a growing client base in the GTA, Blue-Pencil is on course to propel the “pursuit of service and solutions innovations” for its customers.
