Who is our paper-replacement software for?

Does my business need to replace paper systems?

Whether your business needs to replace paper systems with digital solutions ultimately depends on your specific needs and circumstances. However, the cost-saving, security and environmental benefits that most businesses experience mean that it is often a preferred and beneficial course of action to take.

Characteristics of paper replacement and document management software

Paper-replacement software, is also sometimes known as document management software or electronic content management software, typically has the following characteristics:

Digital storage and organisation
Paper-replacement software allows you to store documents electronically and organise them in a digital file structure. This makes it easy to locate and access documents, and eliminates the need for physical storage space.

Search and retrieval capabilities

Paper-replacement software typically has advanced search and retrieval capabilities, allowing you to quickly locate specific documents or information within documents.

Document editing and collaboration

Many paper-replacement software options allow for document editing and collaboration, enabling multiple people to work on the same document simultaneously.

Version control

Document management software usually has version control features that allow you to track changes to documents, see who made them, and revert to previous versions if necessary.

Security features

Electronic content management systems offer a range of security features such as access controls, audit trails, and encryption to ensure that documents are secure and only accessible to authorised users.

Integration with other software

Many document management systems can integrate with other software, such as customer relationship management (CRM) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, allowing for more streamlined workflows and greater efficiency.

Mobile accessibility

Some paper-replacement software can be accessed from mobile devices, allowing for greater flexibility and accessibility to documents when on the go.

Benefits of Replacing Paper Systems & Document Management Software

  • Cost Saving

    Digital systems can be more cost-effective than paper-based systems in the long term. For example, the cost of printing, storing, and transporting paper-based records and documents can be high, especially for large organisations. Digital systems can eliminate many of these costs, such as printing and storage, by storing information electronically.

  • Improved productivity and efficiency

    Digital systems can help automate many tasks, reducing the need for manual input and increasing productivity. For example, electronic forms can be completed more quickly and accurately than paper forms, and digital records can be accessed and updated more quickly and easily than paper records. This can help reduce errors and improve the efficiency of many business processes.

  • Better data security

    Digital systems can offer better data security than paper-based systems. Digital records can be encrypted and password-protected, and access to them can be restricted to authorised users. This can help protect sensitive information from unauthorised access or theft, which can be a significant risk with paper-based systems.

  • Improved accessibility

    Digital systems can offer improved accessibility to information, particularly for remote or mobile workers. Electronic documents can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, which can help improve collaboration and communication between teams.

  • Environmental benefits

    Replacing paper systems with digital systems can help reduce paper consumption, which can have a positive impact on the environment. Using digital systems can also help reduce the amount of waste generated by paper-based systems, such as discarded paper and ink cartridges.

    Overall, replacing paper systems with digital systems can help organisations operate more efficiently, improve data security, and reduce costs, while also offering benefits for the environment.

What is the difference between paper replacement management software and document management software?

Document management software and paper replacement software are similar in that they both enable organisations to digitise and store documents in a centralised location. The two terms are often used interchangeably. However, there are some key differences between the two:

  • Focus

    Document management software is primarily designed to help organisations manage, organise, and retrieve their digital documents more efficiently. It typically offers features such as version control, document search and retrieval, document editing and collaboration, and security features to protect sensitive information.

    Paper replacement software, on the other hand, is specifically designed to help organisations transition from paper-based document systems to digital ones. It offers many of the same features as document management software, but also includes additional tools to facilitate the scanning and digitisation of paper-based documents.

  • Scope

    Document management software is typically used to manage a wide range of digital documents, including emails, PDFs, spreadsheets, and other file formats.

    Paper replacement software, on the other hand, is focused specifically on the digitisation of paper-based documents. It is designed to help organisations scan, digitise, and store paper documents in a centralised digital system.

  • Implementation

    Document management software can be implemented in organisations of all sizes and types, from small businesses to large enterprises, in any industry.

    Paper replacement software is often implemented in organisations that have a large volume of paper-based documents, such as healthcare organisations, legal firms, or government agencies. It is often used as part of a larger effort to transition from paper-based document systems to digital ones.
