How data collected from an online form versus a paper one makes your business more efficient
Vancouver, BC -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/24/2013 -- While caving to peer pressure is usually advised against, many are following in the footsteps of companies like Google, Microsoft and even President Obama: they’re all moving their day-to-day business operations to a paperless system. Many have touted “going paperless” as a corporate priority for years to reduce their carbon footprint and lower costs, but stick with paper for fear of decreased efficiency and time wasted. Does moving operations online really make business more efficient? That depends on the tools you choose.
Like any major shift to your business model, digging out from mounds of paper and moving things online will take some time and energy upfront, but more and more companies are confirming the switch was worth it. The Paperless Project reports that 85 percent of business documents are in paper form. And with 60 percent of an employee’s time spent working with documents, it seems a worthy endeavor. Going paperless saves time and hard costs, avoids duplication and other errors and can streamline processes such as billing, accounting and the collection of information, or customer input.
Whether you’re collecting information for a lengthy financial information form or running an online store which sells jewelry, customer or client input is a core method of interaction. The successful collection of data often determines an effectual transaction or a failure. For many, much time is spent collecting this information. As such, it makes sense to focus here in the move to paperless.
So, where to start?
Like many cloud- and web-based tools, options for collecting information online using an online form builder, range from free to professional grade. Unless you’re a computer programmer with a vast knowledge of HTML, you’ll most likely need a custom form to make the transition online effective and efficient. While this can cost a fortune and require quite a bit of time to build, it doesn’t have to.
