Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970. On April 22nd of each year more than 192 countries participate to support environmental protection. ICM Document Solutions services and products support environmental protection every day, every year.
Using electronic files means no more printouts or copies; which saves paper. If you add a content management system, all future documents are created, stored, retrieved and distributed electronically; saving even more paper. All this reduces a company’s carbon footprint and helps the environment.
An EPA study estimates producing 10 million pages of paper destroys 2,500 trees, burns 56,000 gallons of oil, fills 450 cubic yards of landfill space and consumes 595,000 KW (kilowatts) of energy.
Here are some points to ponder:
ICM has scanned over 207 million paper pages for its clients
Once scanned, paper is shredded and recycled for reuse
2,500 trees are saved for every 10 million paper pages avoided
The US Department of Energy puts average tree cover at 700 per acre
So, indirectly, ICM products and services save thousands of trees and many acres of forest. That’s pretty good!
If the culture of your company promotes environmental awareness, going paperless can have a significant impact. What’s more, going paperless is smart for many more reasons than helping the environment.
The ViewCenter system has transformed our business and enabled us to serve both our global staff and our customers much faster and more efficiently.
Andrea Zublin Administrator,
ViewCenter is one of the best tools I have ever used! I was looking for a solution that would allow me to easily scan and store numerous documents and make them readily available to my customers without having to manually index each document. . . . Not only are my documents now digitized, no one had to manually index them, the OCR function works great and continues to improve the more you use it. . . . If the quality of the product were not enough, the level of customer and technical service I receive is outstanding!
We hired ICM Document Solutions to help us get a handle on our historical documents and establish new document management practices that will enable us to drive a more efficient future for our business.

It has been a joy working with you on this project, and we constantly speak highly of the work you did for us.
Everything is looking very good and our reintegration of the image files into our system is going virtually flawless.

With electronic document scans we don’t worry about misfiles anymore. Retrieval is easy and quick. Plus it’s much easier for the public to access documents, which reduces the need for clerk-provided assistance.
Virlynn Tinnell Clerk of the Court,
The college chose ICM ViewCenter for its replacement solution. As a Web-based and open architecture document management software, ViewCenter has proven to be secure, flexible, easy to use, reliable, and scalable. Some features important to GCC were version control, and retention control, all of which ViewCenter handles with modular plug-ins chosen to suit each customer’s needs.
