Work efficiently thanks to digitization
Being right and being righted are not always one and the same. The situation is similar with entrepreneurial decisions about which path to take for a successful future. The industries that deal with helping their customers to get their rights or to find the right way for the company are lawyers and management consultancies.
Lawyers as members of public law have a special status, but also a special responsibility. In management consultancies, for example, there are often also lawyers in addition to engineers and business economists. In a very complex social and economic structure like that in Germany, practically every step is accompanied by possible legal consequences. Probably the most important foundation for these structures is the, ideally, complete documentation of all processes.
That's exactly what PaperOffice DMS is, a document management software that can do much more than just manage documents.
There is no way around automation for lawyers and management consultants
For lawyers & management consultancies, this means maintaining a very extensive client or customer file, which must also have a few special features. For example, the principles of the GDPR must be observed and, of course, lawyers are bound by the absolute duty of confidentiality, which not only applies to oral statements, but also to the safe storage of documents protected against unauthorized persons. There is also an obligation to comply with legal and contractually agreed deadlines.
In some cases, non-compliance with these deadlines can have criminal consequences, but mostly only civil consequences. For management consultancies, the protection of their clients' trade secrets is also of paramount importance.
PaperOffice meets the highest security standards such as authorization management, various access levels and the assignment of access authorizations. The user defines the individual work steps in exactly the same way as they are carried out in the company, for example the "recording", "checking", "release" and "booking" of invoices.
Responsibility can be assigned not only to individuals, but also to user groups such as "Accounting" or "Tenancy Lawyers" so that a colleague can step in immediately if an employee is absent.
The OCR technology not only recognizes the document content, but also all tax-relevant data fields such as document number, date, net, tax and gross amount. The imported data is available for controlling evaluations, payment transactions and financial accounting. This saves tiresome entry work and reduces posting errors.
With just one mouse click, the data including the archiving location can be exported to your client or vice versa. These can also be provided with passwords.

In Germany there are currently around 150,000 individual regulations from federal and state laws and regulations. Every area of social and economic life is regulated.
