When most people think of e-forms, they think of a fillable PDF that is printed, signed and either scanned for emailing, faxed or – heaven forbid – mailed. Whichever scenario you conjure up, a fillable PDF is not a “true” electronic form and cannot provide companies with an integrated solution to streamlining and automating key business processes.
Here are 8 ways in which “true” electronic forms can transform your business. This is especially important since 85% of business processes rely on forms.
- Eliminate the paper from the beginning
- Release the information needed to run your business
- Integrate data with core business systems automatically
- Improve data accuracy
- Kick off automated workflow
- Digitally signed e-forms are legally binding
- Easy to design & set up
- Realize a quick ROI
Not every electronic management company has the expertise and flexibility to help you implement an e-form solution. You should look for a document management service provider that will help your company operate more efficiently, improve your bottom line and strengthen your competitive position; now and as you plan for growth in the future. Experience, flexibility of service offerings, reliability, client-focused services and value-add are all key qualities to look for in an e-forms service provider.
