Electronic Forms Management


Everyone knows using paper forms is an outdated, inefficient and costly way to do business, but do you know what it really costs you?

AIIM published a whitepaper in 2012 that includes the results of a survey conducted with 477 of its 64,000 community members.

In the AIIM survey, respondents estimated how much it costs them, per document or form, in printing, distribution, mailing, collection, and sorting, prior to either scanning or paper-based processing (Source: © AIIM2013 www.aiim.org)

  • The average cost per form is $4.56
  • The median is $2.00
  • 20% of respondents spent more than $10 per form!
