Paper forms, from time cards to safety inspections, you can’t avoid them in the construction industry. These forms are crucial for your business. They ensure you’re compliant with safety and health codes and track your labor and material costs. Without these forms, you’d have a limited idea of what was happening on your various sites.
But, these forms could be costing your construction company thousands of dollars a year. Why?
Paper forms can take hours, days, or weeks to return to your office. This lag slows down tons of your processes. From purchase orders to invoices, paper forms slow down your construction business.

Not only do you lose information, all that time spent filling that form has just gone down the drain. More than a pain, they’re hurting your business financially. PWC reports that up to 11% of paper forms get misfiled or are lost every year.
Paper forms were the best solution for the 20th century. But today? They’re only holding you back.
