In terms of labor cost, your standard four-drawer filing cabinet will cost about $25,000 in man hours to fill with documents.
That same four-drawer filing cabinet will cost about $2,000 per year to maintain, factoring in storage space, labor, etc.
One study showed that a $5 ream of paper ends up costing the average business $155 in associated labor costs.
