A Major Business Trend in The Digital Document Revolution

January 15, 2016

With ever advancing technology, our world is changing at an incredible pace. One of the biggest areas of change is the switch from static hard copy printed documents to entirely digital cloud-based interactive documents.

Cloud-based digital documents will soon completely replace hard copy static documents

As more people and businesses move their document creation and hosting to the cloud, one of the biggest areas of change will be that business proposals and contracts will become entirely digital and interactive. Instead of business documents being dull, static, and almost completely text based, business documents such as business proposals and contracts will move to a cloud based digital format, and include video, audio, web content, multiple file types, and full multimedia interactivity.

Tom Gosner, a tech guru at Techcrunch, recently explained in an article that one of the biggest business trends in the next 3-5 years will be that static printed proposals and contracts will move entirely to the cloud based digital realm (Source:

Gosner predicts that static business documents, such as business proposals and contracts, will completely disappear in less than 5 years. We at ClientPoint couldn’t agree more. We strongly believe that moving to an entirely paperless electronic system for document creation, tracking, and management is very beneficial for business of all sizes and obviously, incredibly beneficial for our environment. That is why we created our cloud based ClientPoint business proposal management system, and why it has quickly become the leading cloud based business proposal creation and management solution in the world.

Why this massive change to cloud-based digital documents?

Traditional static print documents are quickly being replaced by digital documents. Physically needing to scan, print, fax, sign, or ship documents has become an unnecessary and time consuming task, and a waste of resources. More and more business transactions are being performed online quickly and inexpensively using new tools such as digital signatures. Soon we will rely solely on cloud-based services to manage all documents and transactions.

Cloud-based digital contracts and agreements will replace all static paper-based agreements and will be permanently connected to the identities of each business and their clients. As contract objectives are met, digital agreements will be updated.

The main reasons behind the adoption of cloud-based agreements is the increased efficiency of processes, a major reduction in costs, and an improvement in the end-user experience. For example, which would you rather read—a traditional printed business proposal that is almost entirely text or a beautiful digital proposal that is interactive and contains, video, audio, web content, and interactivity? It's like comparing an old rusty 1980s Volvo station wagon to a new Ferrari sports car.

Financial services, real estate companies, government agencies, health care, high tech, and even insurance companies are now turning to cloud-based digital agreements as the best option to sign and manage new contracts.

However, it is not only large corporations from prominent industries that are switching to cloud-based digital agreements. An increasing number of small businesses that offer B2B services are eager to capitalize on this exciting new trend. Soon contract creation and management will never be the same because now with cloud based solutions, managing contracts is so much faster, easier, more accurate, and financially economical.

These “cloud agreements”, as Gosner calls them, are already part of the present business environment, and are being enthusiastically adopted by countless businesses in several industries and niches. The future we were expecting for so long is now here.
