Only 35 per cent of office workers print important emails and file them in a place that can be accessed by other members of staff.

That is one of the headline findings of research conducted by Canon, which also indicated that 71 per cent of people keep such documents stored in local computer folders that no one can get to but them.

The study, launched alongside Canon's latest document management solution, suggests that more efficient printing solutions could encourage more people to keep a paper copy of important documents.

Canon UK's head of office marketing Tracey Fielden said: "Our research highlights the need for a comprehensive document management solution that can be used across small and large enterprises."

She suggested that the companies 'Therefore 2009' program includes innovative ways to manage print and documents to ensure that information is shared adequately throughout an office.

Recently, Yahoo highlighted the fact that print costs can be significantly reduced by choosing to use fonts that use up less black ink on the page.
