According to research, filing a single file requires 5 minutes on an average. This average time doesn’t take into account time spent on document search and its retrieval. Spending time on printing and storing paper documents is hugely wasteful for businesses. Furthermore, with increasing physical paperwork, you need to account for opportunity cost of real estate space used and the added purchase of cabinets. Also there is a high risk of document loss through misplacement or damage, when they are retained in physical form. To reduce the need to manage documents physically, General DataP. Limited was established.
