Ultimate guide to Document Automation
What is document automation, how can it simplify your professional communication and grow your business?
Every day, almost all organisations deal with paperwork. From internal contracts, supplier agreements, invoices and policies, the average worker uses around 10,000 sheets of paper each year – that’s a little more than one tree’s worth. It’s a lot of paper for one person but multiply that by the number of people in a medium-sized business, and that one tree becomes a forest’s worth.
But paper doesn’t just take its toll on our environment. Paperwork drains two of your business’ most valuable assets – time, and people. In fact, Human Resource (HR) professionals can spend up to 12 hours per week managing paperwork. Further research from the UK and US, reveals that employees can spend up to 25 minutes searching for just one document. That inefficiency is exacerbated by the fact that 68% of employees only find what they need after three attempts, while 80% take up to eight attempts.
