Having a large pile of registers storing all necessary information is kind of hectic and difficult to maintain, but with advancement of technology, all this can simply be stored on a drive, it may be a physical drive or may be a virtual one. With the introduction of automated systems, people have been losing their jobs because they are replaced by a much quick and efficient tool which hardly requires any maintenance.
