Adjusting to Your Remote Work Reality

People all over the world are adjusting to their remote work reality. Either that or because of these times, they’re searching pages like and many others in order to find a job and start working from home. That being said, there is no denying that working from home can pose a wide range of unique challenges. For example, if you now have to keep expensive computing equipment or sensitive workplace documents in your home, then it is crucial that you have a home security system in place. Naturally, no one likes to think too much about the possibility of being burgled, but if a criminal were to steal your work equipment, the consequences could be devastating. Consequently, if you are working remotely and have not already done so, it is strongly recommended that you take the time to research Verisure Alarm Systems and other home security measures to protect yourself from crime. At the very least, installing an alarm can act as a deterrent for potential criminals. Putting the dangers of working from home to one side for now though, Nitro’s solutions have always been ideal for those times that lead to working away from the office, such as an unexpected car break down or while caring for a sick child at home. In the past month (as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has progressed) we’ve seen Nitro users working 100% digitally more than ever: already we’ve seen a 50% increase in eSignature requests sent per week via Nitro Cloud and a 51% reduction in overall printing activity through Nitro Pro.

Overcoming Hidden Document Challenges at Home

Here’s a common scenario when making the switch to working from home (WFH):

Mark works as a legal services proposal manager and recently moved to a home office. He was compiling proposals on his computer at home when he realized that he was missing a way to combine documents. While Mark had a digital document solution on his computer at work, his home laptop did not.

Mark required more than just converting Word documents into PDF files. For his most extensive proposal, he needed to insert multiple, complicated files as appendices. To make matters more stressful, his client warned Mark and his boss that they had an overly restrictive firewall, meaning the overall file size couldn’t be too big or files wouldn’t be transferable over email.
