New Software to Digitize Paper Rapidly

As organizations look to meet reopening guidelines a new solution to digitize paper is here to help.

When companies, government and schools reopen, physical distancing will reduce direct contact between everyone. Material handling between parties, including paper documents, will be discouraged. Public health officials at the Centers for Disease Control encourage social distancing as a key method to prevent COVID-19 cases.

Paper forms are a challenge for companies looking to implement social distancing. How do you fill out an order form on paper and pass it to fulfillment from 6 feet away? What happens when a customer needs to fill out a form and hand it to a cashier?  How do employees in an organization pass paper documents from desk to desk if they need to remain six feet away from each other? Do companies need to begin teaching paper airplane folding techniques? 

“Before, digital could ‘wait until tomorrow’, but no longer. Digital delivery is now a business and health imperative,” said Richard Marshall, founder of Concept Gap, a UK-based analyst firm. “You need to adopt mobile and web delivery immediately or risk customer and employee abandonment."
