Paper is a highly fragile medium for its place as the foundation of so many business critical processes. It can become illegible, damaged by the elements, or worst of all lost. If any of those occur, not only does your company foot the bill, but you created a negative experience with your client in the process.

Your current paper-based system is time-tested, and everyone knows the drill. The thought of implementing new processes, systems, and hardware is just too much to take on.

What you should know: Digitizing your proof-of-delivery process and integrating technology into your world is easier than ever--and you don't even need to replace your current ERP system.

Baby Steps
