The issue

We understand that the initial set-up cost to fully switch from traditional paper-based administration processes to current electronic administration software application can be expensive.


As very few organisations have the budget to implement a full chronological historical data transfer, held in old-style and timeworn Burial/Crematorium Registers, index cards, original paper files, microfilm and microfiche archives.

Therefore, one cannot help but end up with a duel old and new administration system in place i.e. pre-software and post software administration processes.

The opportunity

An opportunity to address this specific need of document professionals transferring between old and new current hybrid administration difficulties and frustrations.
