It’s not about the physical files–it’s about the data. When your business shifts to using electronic forms exclusively, there’s no limit to how much your workflow can improve. Here’s five ways that they will revolutionize how your company does things.
One way that electronic forms will change your business is by changing how your information is stored. Online forms allow your company to receive information instantaneously and to store it in one place. No longer will there be a delay in getting what you need because it’s waiting to be written up.
Similarly, the data already exists. As soon as the client fills out the online form, you have it. No longer will you have to pay an employee to read and enter information from a paper form. When the data is already where you want it to be, your employees can focus on what the data means.
Since the information is already in the system, employees can focus on using what they’ve learned to improve processes and make change happen. With data in one consistent format, it is also possible to observe how things have changed. It is also possible to use the data to plan for future projects.
Another idea to consider when moving to electronic forms is that changes to processes can happen much more quickly. As customers use forms to communicate with the company, something great should happen: you should learn something. When using paper forms, it is nearly impossible to remove all the old forms from use. Now, updates can remove the old versions from use.
Finally, using a variety of electronic forms allows information to be available anywhere in your network. When all parts of the systems work well together, productivity is another added benefit that pays off. More time used doing the actual work is less time wasted planning to work.
