It sure can! It isn’t odd for people to like having some things in paper form and EMDECS certainly has plenty of print buttons throughout, but it is possible to operate completely without paper.
Work orders can be printed from the 1st generation of EMDECS with job bar codes for technicians to scan onto, but they can also indicate work being done directly on screen. With the 2nd generation of EMDECS, technicians can indicate the work they are doing in real time and completely end their need for paper.
When reports or invoices are printed from EMDECS, they first appear on the screen as PDF files which can be read and distributed electronically – without the use of paper.
