No Need for Redundant, Manual Data Entry

Paper-based forms are still commonly used by many organizations to capture customer, client, patient, or internal information. Yet, certain steps in paper-based forms processes create slowdowns that your organization simply doesn’t have time for.

Your organization needs to capture information from customers, clients, and/or patients for a reason. However, when capturing data involves a paper-based form, it adds an extra and often time-consuming step: manual data entry.

Manual data entry consumes far too much employee time. There’s the initial time it takes to an employee manually rekey data from the form into the system. Add on the time it takes to interpret handwriting. Add still more time for when the handwriting is misinterpreted and creates errors that need to be corrected. All in all, that time adds up—and no one in your organization has time to spend on a manual process that could be easily automated.

From capture to entry, a paper-based route to forms management is filled with slowdowns and redundancies. But with a data capture and forms management solution, your organization can change all of that.

“Our sales and service people go to customers’ plants frequently. Now, they can be at a customer location, get on the Internet and pop up the information they need. Using any browser, all you need is a password to get at the information. It’s just awesome.”
