Currently the use and storage of paper files creates a tremendous demand for paper and space. If flashdrives were used for each separate master file, there would be very little need for paper or storage space. Thousands of files could be stored in one desk drawer. This would also facilitate sending information and/or files from one office to another since the files could be e-mailed from one location to another. Also, by using certified electronic signatures on documents there would be no need to print the document, sign it, and scan it in order to preserve the record.
