The Library is Making an ImpacT
December 03, 2012
Last month, MCPL was honored by the Kansas City Business Journal with an ImpacT Award. The ImpacT Awards program recognizes valuable contributions made by local businesses that affect their internal operations, efficiency, and financial performance through the use of new or existing technology. MCPL received the award for our paper-saving advancements in creating a new technology-driven documentation system.
"Saving paper is inherently a good thing. But more important to me than saving paper is all the other resources that are saved with a solution like this one. Much like the Lorax, I would like to think that I "speak for the trees" when I say that BoardDocs is a positive program in terms of our paper consumption," said Library Director and CEO Steve Potter. "Even more than the savings in paper is the savings in time, the savings in transportation and shipping costs, the savings in our storage, the ability to support our meetings in a more timely way, and the ability for the people of the Library district to have more access to their library’s governance."
Before switching to the new digital system, MCPL was using nearly 47,000 sheets of paper to print agendas and information packets for the monthly Board of Trustees meeting. By utilizing our new BoardDocs software, Board members can track decisions and keep updated on projects, and so can you!
