Businesses hit digital roadblock due to paper processes


“A survey of business and IT leaders has found that paper-based processes are creating inefficiencies.

Despite the growth of computerisation in recent decades, businesses still use paper in key processes.

The Coleman Parkes study – based on interviews with 735 senior business and IT decision makers – found that, in 75% of organisations, a fifth of data is still held in hard copy.

Half of organisations still hold five to 10 years of data in paper form. But only 13% said they were confident accessing data that was between 11 and 20 years old.

When asked about the importance of digitising their organisations' data, 38% said it would enable them to improve forecasting, while 32% said it would enable them to make better decisions.”
