Paper to eForms

    Most people would prefer to fill out a form electronically rather than on paper, yet so many business still rely on paper forms.  It seems that old adages like "well that's the way we have always done it" or "why fix something that isn't broken" are keeping companies from making the change to electronic forms and they are failing to capitalize on the benefits because of such attitudes.  They most likely have little idea about how much that paperwork is hindering productivity and increasing costs.  Anything on paper has a risk of being lost, must be physically stored somewhere, can be hard to locate, and paper is expensive. Electronic forms on the other hand can have multiple copies, shared with multiple people regardless of the location, can be backed up, and digital storage is a whole lot cheaper than physical storage.  You can buy paper made from recycled materials in an effort to be environmentally friendly, or you can choose to just not use paper at all.

    Contracts are probably the one paper form people are most reluctant to switch to electronic, yet electronic contracts yield some of the greatest benefits.  People can legally sign contracts from almost anywhere on any device. Gone is the need to have everyone in the same office in order to sign or sending the papers back and forth with a carrier service.  The time it takes to execute a contract can be reduced from weeks to minutes.  You can even monitor who has and who has not signed a form in real time.  You can send a form out to be signed by multiple people at the same time or you can specify what order they should sign in and everything is handled automatically.

    If you would like to increase revenue, cut costs, improve security, and be more environmentally friendly take an inventory of what paper forms you are still using and then make switch to electronic.  The Applications Development Team at Excedeo can help you.
