You may already be mindful of the three Rs mantra: Reduce, reuse, recycle. #EarthDay2018, which has been celebrated on April 22 since 1970, brings public attention back to the importance of reducing the pressure that we put on the Earth’s resources.

The most recent AIIM industry survey – just released – paints a thought-provoking picture of the current state of digital transformation.

At DocuWare we’re dedicated to providing document management and workflow automation solutions that are affordable, flexible, easy to use and quick to implement – and so a cloud-first approach is the strategy we are focusing on.

Employees stuck in repetitive, time-consuming processes with scattered, incomplete information work hard but can’t deliver the effectiveness that they know they’re capable of. It’s time to give knowledge workers the right tools they need to achieve results.

The rise of mobile has transformed how and where business is done. If your knowledge workers are outside a central, physical office, the only way to keep them connected and productive is through mobile access. Whether the company provides the devices or they use their own, knowledge workers – especially the increasingly large percentage who are remote – need mobile, cloud-based tools to save time and get the job done.
