  • Dhanvir Nannen South Africa Paper-based documents has been used by man ever since paper was invented. However it is widely held that keeping and maintaining paper-based documents is unnecessarily cumbersome and costly, now that we have the option of maintaining electronic versions of documents. It is estimated that between 85% and 90% of corporate information is not accessible through computer networks because it exists in the form of paper documents. Existence of these paper-based systems means that there are wasted man hours spent filing, searching, retrieving, and re-filing these documents. In today�s business environment where organizations are trying to cut costs and increase productivity, paper filing systems are outdated and need to be replaced with a document imaging system. When information existing in hard copies is freed from the physical limitations of paper, and transformed into an electronic document, it becomes a strategic resource. The time saved retrieving electronic documents is enormous. Not taking advantage of this can literally be costly, that could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In today�s business environment where organizations are trying to cut costs and increase productivity, paper filing systems are outdated and need to be replaced with a document imaging system. When information existing in hard copies is freed from the physical limitations of paper, and transformed into an electronic document, it becomes a strategic resource. The time saved retrieving electronic documents is enormous. Not taking advantage of this can literally be costly, that could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Here are some problems of a paper-based system: The average document in an office gets copied 19 times. 7.5% of all documents get lost, 3% of the remainder get misfiled. Professionals spend 5-15% of their time reading information, but up to 50% looking for it. Of all the documents that get handled each day in the average office, 90% are merely shuffled. 90% of corporate memory exists on paper. There are over 4 trillion paper documents in the U.S. alone � growing at a rate of 22% per year. To convert paper-based documents into digital documents the technologies that may be used include scanners, photo scanners, microfiche scanners, digitization of postal mail. Scanned documents need labeling and cataloguing. Such labeling allows the scanned documents to be searched. Some technologies have been developed to do this that involve either human cataloging or automated indexing on the OCR document.

  • Franklin King Liberia Paper based documentation is the traditional form of user documentation. It consists of manuals and reference guides that would be available in the computer section of your local bookstore or library. It also includes documents produced in-house that are specifically designed for the system. User manuals are the most common form of paper-based documentation. They cover, in a tutorial format, the steps required to complete the sort of tasks that an end user would perform on a routine basis.
