AIIM Survey: winning the paper wars
AIIM Survey: half of those adopting paper-free processes report a payback within 12-month time period
The survey shows specific improvement factors can be used to build a business case for greater investment in the battle against paper and move a business forward.
Spending on mobile capture, optical character recognition (OCR), business process management (BPM)/workflow and accounts payable/accounts receivable technologies is anticipated to increase sharply over the next 12 months.
Areas within organisations that are most likely to benefit are HR (expenses and employee on-boarding), Finance (Accounts Payable and Receivable) and any lines of business that deal with a heavy volume of forms, contracts or logistics documents.
Fifty-two percent of organisations have a mail delivery requirement of 4 hours or less. To respond many enterprises are implementing a Digital Mailroom in order to automatically capture, classify and route documents through the business.
Sixty percent reported mail traceability and compliance improvements as the greatest benefit of a Digital Mailroom, followed closely by improved customer service and better quality of data capture into downstream processes.
