This was a term that used to refer to that thin spare tyre that gave you more room in the boot of your car! And in a similar way by ADS digitising all your company records you can create valuable extra space. So rather than move to a larger building why not stay where you are and save money.
There is also a little talked about aspect of this process – recycling the paper. After the scanning has been completed and permission for secure destruction is given the paper then goes for secure shredding and converted into paper pulp used for newsprint. So as well as releasing office space you’ve also recycled your old paper documents.
Now that’s a good feeling.
