Electronic forms allow you to have full control over the fields you require the submitter to complete. This includes the type of data you need for a specific field, whether or not the field is mandatory and even character limits.
With this amount of control, the accuracy of the data in electronic forms is far better than the paper-based counterpart. Electronic forms eliminate most of the human error involved with filling out forms.
This also makes reviewing them a lot easier.
Time and Money
Switching from paper-based forms to electronic forms have a significant impact on saving your business time and money.
Without the need to print, scan, mail, file or revise forms, your business will reduce the amount of paper used throughout its workflows – and paper costs money.
Not only do these paper-based methods cost money due to the paper, but they also involve quite a bit of remedial administrative duties. This also interferes with productivity and adds additional overhead costs to pay employees to take care of these tasks.
Employees that spend their time doing these mundane tasks are wasting valuable time within the business that they could otherwise be using to add value to the business.
Electronic forms are a great way to automate workflows from start to finish and free up this time for the employees.
