The Papercloud Opportunity from Watermark Technologies

Do you know what a Document Management System (DMS) is? If you do, then great – this article is for you. If you haven’t heard of it before, or if you don’t know why anyone would ever want to use such a thing, then you have been missing a trick! For your clients, this is little short of a miraculous way to make their lives easier and their staff more efficient; for you, it is a wonderful source of recurring revenue (and you don’t need telling twice about how much you like that!)

The issue that almost all Document Management Systems have had is that there is a long learning curve to get used to using them, they kind of feel like you have one hand tied behind your back and invariably, you wind up with people wanting to use the old ways that they used to do things, and sometimes you even wind up with the old system being run alongside the new! A doubling up of work!

This is all different with Papercloud however: it looks like paper, it behaves like paper and as a result, it is very intuitive for users and trust me, that is a very important thing.

Another way to look at it is that your clients have paperwork: lots of it. Various forms for various purposes from various people. Can you imagine a bit of their paperwork, safely filed away, in a filing cabinet, along with everything else: all in its right place? Now imagine that this client suddenly found out that they were only meant to keep such bits of paperwork for a certain amount of time, let’s say five years, and they cannot get rid of it before this time, how easy would it be for them to find this paperwork at the right time, every time and safely dispose of it in the prescribed way? It sounds like a lot of work to me…

Or, if an individual goes to another of your clients with a GDPR subject data access request and this client has to find everything that their company holds on this person and then present it to them in a structured format, all within the legal time limit. How long could that take this client of yours to go through all the different places that any mention of that person could be? Think about the boxes of old files in the basement or the shed, or in the old building… Paper is not great for this sort of thing as it can only be easily filed under one heading at once.

This is where Papercloud, the Document Management System in the cloud, make such things easy. OCR driven searches, automated document management and many other features.

  • Papercloud can make your clients’ jobs easier, their time more productive and their companies more profitable as a result.
  • Papercloud is also helpful for companies to comply with regulations such as GDPR or FSA.
  • In short, you should be selling Papercloud!
