Conducting Business During Ramadan

So Ramadan has started and as we all observe and respect the rules and traditions associated with the Holy Month whilst trying to continue with ‘business as usual', we wanted to remind our followers of the basic etiquette for doing business at this time. The basics The first step towards being culturally sensitive during Ramadan is understanding the basic requirements of this religious period.

With this month’s focus on Earth Day and all the talk in the news recently about missions to Mars, it’s actually a good time to think about what each of us can do to protect our own planet - the things that we can actually change to make a difference. We spend most of our time at work, so let’s start there. How environmentally friendly (‘green’) is your office? How highly do you score on the checklist below of green workplace initiatives? 1. Do you really Reduce, Re-use and Recycle? The three R’s help us to limit wastage, saving precious resources, energy, time, and money. Don’t print unless you really have to, and when you do, try to print on both sides (duplex). Save old printouts and scrap paper for taking notes at meetings instead of breaking open a new notepad.

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) may have limited resources, but this doesn’t mean they cannot make efficient use of these resources.

Xerox named 2017 Document Imaging Software Line of the Year

At the end of a very successful 2016, Xerox received notification of a final prestigious accolade in recognition of its extensive software portfolio for document application imaging for the fourth year in a row!
