Paper and the legal system - a seemingly inseparable pair that causes significant daily challenges for those tasked with storing, managing, and accessing it. The management of this information - contracts, agreements, legal filings, and more - is critical given the need for information on demand while insuring confidentiality and data security. And, when courts or legal filings are involved even a single form can cause a lengthy and expensive headache. And, as legal enterprises grow, merge, and change over time the demands from attorneys, clients, and their associated workforces put an even greater strain on manual paper processes.
Workers in administrative roles find themselves in very much the same position as well - applications, files, notices, reports - the list goes on. There truly is a need for powerful tools to make sense of the mountains of paper that legal and administrative organizations must cope with.

As technology has advanced, new options for data processing have emerged that have had a immense impact on how our businesses and organizations are run. However, in many cases old paper data still remains, locked up in dusty filing cabinets and expensive storage facilities. Access to this data requires labor, travel, and at times exhaustive searching to find a critical document. The cure for this burden is backfile conversion - converting all those paper documents to digital information that can be stored, accessed, and managed remotely. And, digital files mean that multiple users can access a piece of information at the same time without leaving their workstations. Backfile conversion also allows you to adhere to document retention laws without the burden of expensive and inefficient storage. PaperFree is experienced in backfile conversion and offers many solutions customized to your needs.
All citizens at some point in their life require the services of an attorney - for trusts, wills, court cases, and many other reasons. However, legal entities often have a need to offer particular services at lower rates or extended terms to selected, approved groups of clients. These programs are a huge benefit to those who qualify, but at the same time come with a lot of overhead in managing the application, approval, and maintenance aspects of offering a service outside of the norm. PaperFree offers solutions that support these programs from application processing all the way to managing customer profiles, all while managing the costs and labor necessary.
By making information quick and easy to access, the process of retrieving and processing information for customers will be improved.

Banking and financial institutions are one of the most highly regulated industries today - Check21, the Patriot Act, and FDIC regulations are only a few of the standards that they must adhere to. Enterprise content management systems ease this burden by enabling your industry to maintain accurate, comprehensive reports for regulatory review. Powerful workflows assist in making sure that no steps are missed in the process and that all of the correct assets are available. And, documentation for legal cases can be easily organized and reviewed by only those with permission to do so.
Customers trust financial institutions with their money, and are more and more relying on them to protect their personal information as well. This is often achieved through digital security measures, but occasionally there are paper forms that contain sensitive data that must be protected.
