Business challenge

Energy companies need to maintain compliance with a large and evolving set of regulations, with a growing focus on sustainability. An abundance of paper records can count against sustainability efforts, consuming trees and providing ample landfill fodder. At the same time, a mix of physical and digital documents makes it difficult for users to get information where and when they need it, while maintaining data security and compliance.

What if you could

Digitize physical assets and aggregate them with digital‐native assets in an intelligent document processing system that can help you overcome traditional energy sector data challenges, to:

  • Become paperless or paper‐light, contributing to sustainability goals while reducing costs.
  • Increase efficiency and productivity, saving employee hours previously spent searching for archived or misplaced records, physically updating files, and printing paper documents.
  • Improve your data security and compliance capabilities.
