DocsCorp, a leading provider of enterprise productivity solutions, today published a new report into PDF editing workflows for portable devices. Nearly 300 people were surveyed about how they digitally edit and review documents on different devices to try to pinpoint why the demand for paper continues to increase – suggesting most organizations have not been able to go completely paperless.
Global Marketing Manager at DocsCorp, Kerry Carroll, said the report comes at a time when businesses are investing more in portable devices than traditional desktop machines.
“It’s common knowledge that businesses want to use less paper since paper usage doesn’t just cost the planet. Gartner estimates that up to 3% of company revenue is spent on paper, printing, and filing costs. To be more paper-light, organizations are investing in tablets and other portable devices – whether it be supplied to staff directly or brought in by the user as part of a BYOD program- to encourage people to work with documents digitally as opposed to on hard copy. What the report found was that the devices themselves may be the issue.”
DocsCorp’s report found that people are most reluctant to work on tablets. Less than 10% of people surveyed said they do most of their work on a tablet. Even less saw themselves mostly working from a tablet in 12 months’ time (only 9.86%).
