HOW ‘PAPERLEZ’ SMOOTHLY DRIVES EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS’ EVERYDAY TASKS?
Educational institutions will have different sections for students, teachers and non-teaching staff. There will also be sub-section for each department.

So there has to be folders and sub-folders in almost all subjects that fall under Paper management. With Document Management in ‘Paperlez’, there is one central repository that manages each folders and sub-folders. All that is required to access these files is a little bit of time. Usually in schools or colleges, there will be an administration department with a few employees to handle the files.
