Relaunching Your Supply Chain for the Digitial Age

Although most aspects of daily work have shifted online, one major activity has stayed grounded in the 1970s: data entry. Even today, where almost everybody has a host of electronics at their disposal. the vast majority of data entry for tasks like orders and purchases are still done via pen and paper. While this may seem simple, there’s a lot of reasons to switch to a digital data entry system

1. Saving Time

While filling out a few forms may seem faster than a fully digital process, the numbers add up. 15 minutes a day, for example, adds up to almost 11 work days in a year. Piling this on top an already complex and physical paper-based filing system only serves to further increase the time sink. A fully digital system can be automated to a high degree, in some cases only requiring a digital signature to be complete.

2. Prevent Errors

All humans make mistakes. We lock the keys in our car, forget to buy milk at the store, and add a few zeroes onto the end of an order. These mistakes can cause serious problems for both you, and anybody else in the supply chain. An automated system can remove all chance of this happening, saving you from a potential disaster

3. Stay Organized

Do you remember where you kept that purchase order from January that you need to review? Or the invoice from 2014 that you need to send again? Keeping track of documents is vital for any business, and having them in paper is a serious liability. Using a digital system however, a 20 minute search for an order from 2009 turns into a 20 second keyword search
