Going paperless is an oft-repeated dream for many companies. Management believes in helping the environment and sincerely wants to be more efficient, eliminating waste, but somehow, the steps are not taken to make the dream real. But one company made the commitment and has now gone paperless.

In its "The Cooling Chronicle" e-newsletter where it made the announcement, Lytron Inc., Woburn, Mass., says it has improved "operational efficiency" while reducing its impact on the environment.

At Lytron’s headquarters, the sales, engineering and production teams have moved to a paperless electronic sales-order processing system, which has "significantly sped up our sales-order processing while also saving trees," according to the e-newsletter.
