Receipts contributed by service providers, cash balance documents, or medical certificates - store managers deal with a high amount of paper documents that need to be transferred to the headquarters every day. Usually, they are being collected in folders for months or sent to the responsible office via fax or postal mail. These ways of treating documents often lead to damage or loss, and slow down the workflow since mailing them can take up a lot of time. On top of that, the quality of a faxed image is usually a lot lower, and faxing machines tend to be more susceptible to failure than the average quality provided by a smartphone camera.
