  • Paper is still a key form factor for data collection - simple, cost effective and quick to implement

  • Legal precedence has not kept pace with the digital world - written signature vs digital signature

  • Processing of paper based information is costly - data re-keying and slow corrective measures

  • Unable to audit resulting in lost information - lost opportunities and poor customer satisfaction
