Who doesn’t want to deliver excellent quality work, meet business deadlines, and have close to zero problems during the completion process of every project? It is not surprising that almost all organizations’ C-level personnel or people at higher authority are eager to meet the demands of their organizations. And the phrase ‘I’ll get back to you’ isn’t what top management, or even customers, want to hear. But, the question often remains: how?

The challenge is closely intertwined and continually evolving. Business information is a critical resource, plays a crucial role in organization’s success and must be properly maintained. From handling compliances to receiving/delivering goods, to get approval and more, organizations constantly deal with paper-based forms. Since creating, filling in, and routing paper forms can be time-consuming, expensive and cause delays in business processes. However, cumbersome paper-based forms can hinder organization’s workforce productivity and force them to spend searching through stacks of files instead of focusing on real work. For an instance, if any transaction gets delayed, certainly it may impact on delivery/receiving of the products/services and further related processes. Organization’s revenue and reputation get affected and it may lose new opportunities.
