A few years back, when “going paperless” went mainstream, it was practically synonymous with saving the environment. But being green is only one benefit of the paperless office. Ceasing to rely on paper and digitizing processes is an effective way to increase productivity in all types of business workflows.
Empowering information workers to store, retrieve, and share digital documents eliminates the need for time-intensive, low return tasks, like scouring file cabinets for missing paperwork, so employees can spend more time and energy on projects that generate higher returns.
There is certainly no shortage of tools for enhancing productivity in digital workflows—Nitro alone offers two (Nitro Pro and Nitro Cloud). But oftentimes, the initial transition to digital workflows from paper-based workflows is overwhelming, especially if you’re talking mass quantities of files. Where does one begin?
Enter Brooks Duncan, a veritable guru of paperless productivity. Through his company DocumentSnap, Duncan has helped guide businesses and individuals alike through the oft-intimidating process of turning stacks of paper into digital files.
