Paperless life is in sight

COMDEK network services manager Josh Bovell believes that electronic commerce can make an office truly paperless.

Being as time-short as most modern executives, Mr Bovell uses every time saving web-based transaction available to free himself up for leisure.

His grocery shopping is completely conducted over the Internet.

Ordered in minutes, consumers can specify where they would like their groceries delivered at an exact time.

“I chose the services of a smaller supermarket chain over a larger, well known supermarket because they offered online shopping,” Mr Bovell said.

“This is an illustration of how some companies can beat traditionally stronger competition by embracing new technology and methods of business.

Mr Bovell has not used a postal stamp in years and has never owned a chequebook – thanks to increasing opportunities to conduct online direct debit transactions.

“People are still blown away when I”m asked over the phone to send a payment of some sort and I respond: “I’ve just sent it”,” he said.

“Some say there are adverse social aspects to electronic commerce but I’m not fooling myself about the value of physically visiting a bank and talking to a teller.”
