3 ways to improve document productivity

3 ways to improve prouctivity Seeking to uncover the hidden costs and time wasters that still hamper productivity in the workplace, Nitro partnered with the PDF Association, a global organization that delivers vital information about implementing PDF technology, to conduct a survey of 1,200+ knowledge workers about the ways they use documents on a daily basis at work. The survey was developed around the hypothesis that only businesses actively working to eliminate paper-based productivity killers and modernize sharing and collaboration habits can begin to operate near peak efficiency. It reaches three fundamental conclusions about knowledge worker priorities:

  • Speed up signing
  • Improve collaboration; make it smarter
  • Modernize document sharing

The PDF Association helped conduct the study, and by agreement with Nitro, the raw data is available to PDF Association members.  Watch Nitro’s Sam Thorpe present the survey results at PDF Day in Washington DC.
