Why Office Automation Is A Growing Industry You Should Pay Attention To

September 30, 2015

Whether you graduated from college recently or want to make a career switch, office automation careers are in demand. According to Business Insider, office administrative support is expected to grow 34 percent from 2012 to 2022. The reason? Many of those jobs were cut during the recession and are now being added back as the economy improves.

While many Portland, Seattle and Denver companies are hiring office support staff in-house, even more are hiring office automation service providers like Pacific Office Automation. That way, they can streamline their workflow and boost productivity.

Here are a few examples of how office automation saves businesses time and money:

  • A Portland business invests in a multifunction printer that performs the work of a printer, copier, fax machine and scanner that sends and receives documents electronically, saving time and paper waste.
  • A Seattle company that needs to reduce its marketing costs leases a production printer that can print, duplicate, collate and bind reports, catalogs and other marketing materials in-house.
  • A doctor’s office in Denver invests in an electronic records management system that organizes patient records, saving staff valuable time.
  • A Portland-area law firm converts its paper files into an electronic document management system that provides a searchable database to retrieve relevant case information quickly.

One area of office automation that small businesses can’t afford to skimp on is data security and managed IT services. In the age of big data, nearly every aspect of business is networked: from customer communication to billing to ordering. Data is a company’s most important asset, and small businesses today are especially vulnerable to cybercrime.

Savvy entrepreneurs know what they do well but also know what they don’t do well — or don’t have the time for — and outsource the rest. They need custom office solutions, not to mention ongoing service and support as their business needs change and technology evolves. That’s what makes working in office automation so fulfilling and exciting: the opportunity to solve companies’ problems and watch their productivity soar.

Pacific Office Automation’s strong growth throughout PortlandSeattle and Denver is proof that more companies need office automation solutions. As such, we need hardworking self-starters who want to be part of this rapidly growing industry. For more information about career opportunities at Pacific Office Automation, contact us today.
