Orcon Corporation, Union City

Orcon Corporation, a manufacturer of film and seam products for the aerospace and carpet industries, purchased equipment and software to switch to a paperless office system. Incoming paperwork is scanned and saved to the network, instead of making duplicate hard copies for different departments. The company now generates well over a million (or 80%) fewer hard copies each year, has nearly eliminated the costs of long term paper document storage and destruction, and regained valuable office space formerly taken by 50 file cabinets.
