Appraising? Why not go paperless and streamline?

While at times the prospect of an increasingly paperless world sounds intoxicating and simple, some prefer to hold on to the vestiges of old-school business. At Anow we understand why it can be hard to let go of the way you’ve always done things. With that in mind, we’re not here to reinvent the wheel but to help you become more agile and productive in the way you run your business. Moving to a cloud-based, online appraisal system will save you time, energy, and the constant headaches that come along with organization, not to mention a lot of money.

Paperless Appraisals for Your Business

All of those factors work towards building a better and more efficient business. With that said, let’s dig a little deeper into the benefits of a paperless office and how it can help your business move forward.


Appraisal Efficiency

The more paper that’s in an office means that there are more people handling this, dedicating precious time and money to printing will only serve to slow down the average work day. The time spent looking for documents will be greatly decreased when they’re all stored in one electronic space. No more wild goose chases for documents that need to be found in a hurry.

Environmentally Friendly

It’s obvious but it must be stated- a paperless office is a much more environmentally friendly way to do business. It may not mean a lot to some, but moving towards a greener business will see benefits aside from the better treatment of the environment, as we’ll discuss. Cost savings, efficiency, and ease are all benefits related to cutting back on paper usage, aside from being an environmentally friendly way to operate.

Save Office Space

With the move to a paperless office, things like filing cabinets, document storage (whether that be in house, or you’re paying to store information off site) and boxes and boxes of un-filed work no longer become a headache. The space can be used in a much more efficient manner, whether it be for more employees or other useful pieces. With the cost of office space being so high, have more space for employees and the things you need can save you money down the line.

Printing Costs Money

Statistics show that the average business spends almost $35,000 annually on printing. No matter what size your business is, that’s a whole lot of money being spent that doesn’t necessarily need to be. Switching to a paperless business will cut down on these costs significantly and free up that capital for more important matters as they relate to appraising. Agility is important, and freeing up money and time are the best ways to do this.

Agility in Paperless Systems

Having a paperless system, and the one Anow offers specifically, means that you can access any piece of information at any time. There’s no more packing a briefcase full of documents you may or may not need for any appraisals. All the information you want and need is accessible remotely through a smartphone or any other device you may have. It’s an easier way to do business and allows all appraisers to do their job faster and more efficiently.


At Anow, we like the idea of being able to work as quickly and efficiently as possible. Aside from being able to do this, moving to a paperless world offers a myriad of benefits to your business including the potential for tremendous cost savings. It will allow your people to do what they’re best at and not waste time rummaging through boxes and outdated filing systems when speed is of the essence. Paperless is an efficient and streamlined way to do business, and one that we’re happy to help you see through.
