Mobile technologies have helped a large number of small businesses to increase productivity and remain agile by enabling them to work remotely, or supporting BYOD1. However the new ways of working also pose challenges for efficiently and securely entering and accessing information into document management systems and workflows. Whether it’s processing legal documents that need to be signed by different departments, or searching for documents that are stored centrally, a lot of time can be wasted if the correct processes aren’t in place.
According to a study recently commissioned by Canon, as many as 20% of decision makers in small businesses across Europe spend most of their time on administration, with almost a third of decision makers in SMBs saying they suffer from too much paperwork.
Cloud solutions are widely recognised as being hugely beneficial to remove these administrative headaches. However despite this, only 11% of SMB business owners surveyed strongly agreed that their organisation understands cloud-based solutions and how they might help their business.
This pocket guide gives insight into how SMBs can benefit from cloud solutions to improve their information management and digital workflows, helping to streamline processes and reduce time and money spent on admin.
