Utilizing electronic business transactions that can be automatically uploaded into your business and operational support systems substantially reduces costs and greatly enhances productivity.

Cost Benefit Analysis

Studies show that it costs, on average, $8.00 or more for many companies, to handle a paper form. Add in the costs for manual data entry, storage and retrieval and the costs are higher. Moving to a paperless, automated, electronic file environment saves a substantial amount of time and money. EC Infosystems® will evaluate your current processes, volume/type of transactions, systems environment, and Trading Partner relationships to formulate the optimal business case and ROI of transitioning to an electronic format.
