I scanned a lot of the current day to day projects to eliminate those files and also looked at WHAT the paper was that I was using and carrying around, this was mainly paper that I created and put into my workflow rather than paper that come in from the outside.
My job involves designing and quoting security systems for buildings, so working through large, complex technical specification documents and building plans in PDF's, I realised that in the most part, I had been printing these documents and maps and then marking them up and drawing over them, I have since tried to annotate the specification document in Adobe Reader using the highlighting and commenting tools, but still need to find an application to annotate the plans and drawings, I should then be able to manage being around 70 - 80% paperless.
