Today we embrace a future that is free of slow and inefficient processes. The biggest and most common one across all industries is paper. 

The process of collecting data and information on paper has been around for hundreds of years. These were the days when people had simple tools to complete uncomplicated jobs. But in today's world, processes are much more complex.

That is why it is still so surprising that many companies come 2017 will still not have embraced mobile technology to replace their paper-based processes. 

But for the sake of being fair, let's do a quick comparison.

Client expectations are rising every day, and industry competition is increasingly fierce.
