Paper documents and filing cabinets have long been used to organize information in offices, but that does not mean they are the ideal solution. Offices worldwide have been transitioning from physical to Electronic Document Management systems for many years and nowadays businesses begin to recognize the immense potential client facing paperless interactions and online fulfillment scenarios for savings in costs and resources.
However, going paperless cannot happen overnight; it is a process that takes time and effort, and many business owners are overwhelmed by the prospect of making this switch.
As intimidating as the concept may be, switching to paperless information management systems is crucial for any business that wants to be competitive in the modern world. The demand for Digital Transaction Management (DTM) apps and services is increasing exponentially as more companies recognize its ability to offer convenience of access and control over critical business data while powering a paperless world.
DTM empowers businesses and workers to streamline internal and external document-centric business processes
and to be on the same page of the workflow. The proliferation of advanced technologies has further simplified the paperless management scenario by digitally managing the flow and content processing of documents. This reduces the amount of time, money and hassle wasted in searching for files and processing them manually.
PALAXO, the company behind the CIRCULARO™ Platform, caters to this need. It enables organizations of every size to exploit the potential of paperless initiatives without the complexities of a traditional ECM solution.
