Not only are these forms long and arcane, they’re often legal-size documents that don’t easily fit into file drawers. In addition, they often require an absurd number of signatures, sometimes in the presence of a notary.
Many people believe that a paperless office is a dream that will never come true. And it’s true that, in this age of electronics and electronic documents, there are still way too many important aspects of life that must be recorded on paper, often with actual physical signatures.

These born-digital versions include information that can be more easily repurposed into other uses without time-consuming, error-prone copying or re-entering.
