To save paper and allow us to work most efficiently, we could install software that would permit faxes to be sent directly to our e-mails. Foremost, this would facilitate the President's telework initiative as it would permit the receipt of faxes through e-mail. This software would also save us from printing faxes into hard copy and allow us to have electronic versions of the documents that would permit us to store them on our computers, as well as distribute them electronically as needed. Moreover, it would save personnel time presently required to monitor fax machines. In sum, it would aid us in moving away from the antiquated world of hard copies of documents in which we presently reside.
