Default Digitization of paper documents

I need to discuss something related to digitization of paper documents. Recently I found a case study here Success Stories - Global Telecommunications Corporation - Ash Conversions. They were facing an issue in managing bills. I am working in the same industry, and facing issues like this. I would like to know about the accuracy when using this kind of service. If somebody knows about this, please share the details.

I never used paper in my business so I am not sure about removing it from your workflow.
All my paper documents from outside sources are scanned to searchable PDFs and filed and the paper is shredded.

mostly OCR is very good.

especially if the original material is clear and legible.

nothing will replace your need to double check what ends up being copied from paper to digital (which would still be faster than manual entry, and a step still required with manual entry anyway.)

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
