Paper is so yesterday. The steady march toward digital information is changing the publishing industry, making photo labs increasingly obsolete, and even prompting emailed receipts instead of physical ones.
At Burnsville-based CoraCove
, that evolution is taking shape for forms processing, giving professionals the opportunity to replace paper forms with digital ones on tablet computers.
The uses are broad, notes CEO Chris Zweber. An insurance agent might use CoraCove to process a claim instead of pulling out a stack of forms, or a repair person could tap into customer history instead of sorting through a paper-filled file.
In addition to saving time during initial input, the application can create efficiency because it significantly reduces data entry later. Analytics in the software can show field reps important information, such as time spent on service calls.
"In many ways, we're like a combination of Oracle and Salesforce.com," says Zweber. "But we're also unique, since we can customize applications for clients. Basically, we're taking what people already do and making them 10 times faster."
The company got its start in 2011, and Zweber sees plenty of growth ahead as the application gains traction. He says, "We're fine-tuning our ability to scale out already."
