Paper Forms Disadvantages:
Most businesses require their workers to fill a lot of forms. These forms can be related to Safety, Health, Environment or other areas. These forms are still in a large part paper-based. There are several pain problems associated with filling paper forms:
Compliance: Workers could be using obsolete forms which is a compliance hazard.
Safety: Using outdated forms may result in executing wrong procedures that can lead to accidents.
Data Integrity: Frequently, forms are filled by workers in the field, and then data entered in systems by someone else. This can result in errors and inaccurate data. Data is not synced up with backend systems like SAP, Maximo and others that can result in sub-optimal decisions.
Audits: When data is on paper, it becomes very difficult to do audits, and are time-consuming.
Costs: Fines due to non-compliance and duplication of effort increase costs.
Reporting/Analytics: When data is on paper, it is very difficult to perform analytics, observe trends, and make good decisions.
