    Each application that comprises Bashen’s Green Technology Suite shares one component: case document management. Case documents are stored electronically, thereby reducing the amount of paper usually required to work a case. So just what are the Green Savings? The Paper Industry Association Counsel states:

  • The average office worker prints 10,000 sheets of paper per year
  • 1,410 of those sheets are “wasted” at an average cost of 6 cents per sheet
  • Only 56 percent of discarded paper was recycled in 2007
  • Related paper expenses include:

  • Cost of the paper
  • Ink and toner - Did you know that printer ink is one of the most expensive fluids on Earth?
  • Printers
  • Even with disposables, these are still a major investment
  • Consider the cost of disposal when printers fail
  • Are printers recycled? Most printers are plastic
  • Fuel, time and pollution to haul away
  • Maintenance cost
  • Enhanced security measures for bulk storage or disposal of paper
  • Time lost while waiting on print jobs
  • Cost savings include:

  • Less fuel is used to cut, haul and process trees
  • Less pollution is generated from manufacturing
  • Less paper has to be produced
  • Less paper has to be purchased
  • Fewer printers have to be bought and maintained
  • Paper disposal systems are reduced or eliminated
  • File storage space is greatly reduced
  • Green Technology LeafYou will notice that we use a dark background and color scheme for this site. This was an intentional Green choice. As hard as it may be to believe, it takes a significant amount of electricity for the monitor to create white or brighter colors. By using a dark scheme, we are saving electricity for every visitor to our site.

    Software as a Service (SaaS) is defined as a model or method of software deployment that is accessed by users across the Internet. The SaaS model saves the customer money by freeing customers from the cost of installing the application software on their own computers, thereby also reducing the burden and costs associated with software maintenance, installation, configuration, and ongoing operations and support.

    Bashen’s suite of products, which includes our flagship application LinkLine®, is designed to provide an extremely affordable cost of “ownership” and is easily used and accessed by customers from any location in the world. We are constantly developing new applications and functionality in addition to our existing applications. By utilizing SaaS we can bring improvements to our clients much more quickly than has traditionally been possible with enterprise applications. We plan our updates in terms of weeks instead of months or years.

    Bashen Growing GreenIt is no secret that SaaS is generating tremendous interest and enthusiasm among many customers for its performance and easy use. Unlike clientserver applications, SaaS delivers a faster return on investment, as well as easier implementation and user acclimation.
