Paper Cuts

Posted by Charlotte Debenham on 14-May-2019 12:30:00

"Paperless", "Go Green", "Green Office" and "Zero Landfill" are some of the buzzwords of the current era. While more and more businesses are going paperless everyday, some are being left behind. Others lose momentum when they run out of waste reduction ideas. Here are 5 simple ways your office can "Go Green" and stay "Green" by reducing your paper usage.

1. Breaking Bad Habits
STOP. THINK. PRINT. Back to basics, the most simple and effective way to reduce your office’s paper consumption is to quit printing (or at least reduce your bad printing habits). Start by asking yourself simple questions; Do I have to print this? Can this be emailed? Inevitably there will always be something you need to print, think of ways you can reduce your paper consumption:
- Double-sided printing as an option
- Toner-saving mode
- Condensing documents

2. To the Clouds
Save yourself the cabinet space and put it in the cloud. Dropbox, Evernote and iCloud are all proficient off-premise cloud storage applications that will make your fling life simpler, safer and more secure. Choosing cloud storage also gives you and your colleagues easy access to your files whenever and wherever you want.
There is also the option to go digital with contracts and billing using software like EchoSign and Docusign. Not only will online contracts and invoicing save paper, but it eliminates the risk of lost documents and makes modifying contracts simple.

Exposure, Experience and Fun

Posted by Jiarna Zerella on 14-Nov-2018 15:29:18

AFM’s own bookkeeper Jiarna Zerella had the fantastic opportunity to be a part of a historic trip to Croatia held by the Norwood Football Club (wSANFL). This was a great experience for the club and sport as a whole to share what we do in Australia at a local level to the international audience.

Exposure, experience and fun.

Three words that essentially capture the experience of the historic trip to Croatia held by the Norwood Football club (NFC). Shortly after signing for Norwood Football Club (wSANFL), I was invited to embark on their first ever Education and Training camp, held in Biograd, Croatia.

The trip, aimed at exposure for both NFC, the Croatian Knights and Queens, was an absolute success. It was an opportunity for the NFC (both men and women’s) to display their talent offshore, bringing the wonderful game of Australian Rules Football to Europe. The game caused attraction in both Croatia and Australia, with headlines in the Advertiser and an online campaign for people across the globe to watch the game live online. The procedures of the day made for great opportunity for both teams to build a relationship that could potentially cause prospects for Croatian players to come down to Australia and play the game they love in the boundaries of our home country.
