Llyod’s Paperless Inbox

There is an interesting article I read in today’s Wall Street Journal http://online.wsj.com/article/SB118696052762295422.html (Reg Req. Sorry) about Lloyd’s that I thought I would mention.  There were a couple things that stood out to me:

  • Kudos to Lloyd’s for having vision to hire talent over experience.  Their CEO Richard Ward, had no previous experience in insurance but a proven track record of problem solving.  Insurance companies tend to be some of the most closed organizations to outside talent in business.
  • Mr. Ward is waging a war against paper to gain efficiencies.  He estimates Lloyd’s was generating 4 tons of paper EACH DAY.

After reading the article, I was wondering if any of you had any stories about companies that seem to have good long term strategies for dealing with paper?
