ROCHESTER – Every business has a paper document, or series of forms, based on each of its needs. Annually, businesses spend billions of dollars on paper, plus the money for printing, postage, copying and storage.

The United States consumes nearly 30 percent of the world’s paper.

Rochester-based SnAPPii creates apps that ease a business's reliance on paper documents for invoicing, project management, and health and safety inspection. With an easy DIY app creation system, and an on-call service for premium accounts, SnAPPii is helping local businesses go paperless. And with the My PDF Form Manager, SnAPPii is able to directly upload existing PDF documents to Apple and Android products without losing valuable information.

“There’s not a business on the planet that doesn’t have a form, and we noticed that the bulk of the time we spent was actually recreating forms they already have,” SnAPPii owner Alex Bakman said. “I kind of looked at that and said, ‘Well, why can’t we use their existing forms?’ If we could do that, then we could go from zero to 60 in three seconds.”
