    While it’s true that some positions do allow you to apply online, often they’re simply electronic versions of paper-based applications that require you to duplicate information from one application to another, sometimes within the same application, even if you’re already attaching a resume. It would make more sense to have a single file available so you only have to look up once who your manager was and exactly what month you left the job in 1993, and have all job applications able to intelligently extract the information required from it.

For the world to become truly paperless, the focus needs to be on creating born-digital versions of paper documents with important security measures baked in. These born-digital versions include information that can be more easily repurposed into other uses without time-consuming, error-prone copying or re-entering.

Countless benefits are associated with making processes and documents paperless. In this slideshow, Laserfiche takes a look at nine everyday processes that aren’t paperless yet, but should be.
