The Problem with Paper-Based QA Systems

Despite their long history, paper-based QA systems come with a host of challenges:

  • Data is often difficult to access and analyze, buried in paperwork.
  • The manual entry of information is prone to errors, compromising the integrity of quality records.
  • Storing and retrieving physical documents can be cumbersome and space-consuming.

These limitations hinder the efficiency of QA processes, affecting decision-making and the ability to quickly address quality issues.
