What do they do with it? They record its information into a desktop PC, and throw the paper away.
Way back when PCs were new and still running MS-Dos 2.11 I set a probably unrealistic goal of “Whenever anyone anywhere presses a computer key to enter a byte of data, no one should ever have to press a key to enter that piece of data again.”
Not there yet, but very much closer.
