Of course paper work has been replaced by the electronic files or soft copies or data as we call it. For every successful business a good management of these documents is necessary. For office use some office apps will be required. Android is an OS from Google and hence Google Doc is a superb office app which is available for free for Android tablets. All you would need is an internet connection. “Documents to go” is another superb app with many functions like a PC office suit.
