One-click ordering. Two-hour delivery. Spur-of-the-moment video calls. Pay friends by mobile phone. Technology has transformed these everyday tasks, freeing consumers from annoying and repetitive activities, like entering credit card information into a retail website order form.
PDFs—they’re absolutely essential for modern business. When functioning properly, they’re a largely invisible part of the workday. It’s when things don’t work so smoothly that people start to pay attention. Most users need more functionality than simply reading a document—such as converting a PDF, obtaining a digital signature, or controlling access to the document. These more complicated tasks are where simplicity and ease of use are particularly essential. This is where Kofax Power PDF comes in.
Continuing with business as usual—you know that isn’t going to get your organization where it needs to be and where you want it to be.

For years, T&L providers were trapped under the weight of manual business processes. In fact, one study found that 3 out of 4 logistics providers have not automated key customer-facing processes like scheduling shipments, monitoring changes and updating customer statuses.
If it seems like everything is happening in the cloud these days – it’s not your imagination. Organizations of all sizes are recognizing the many advantages of cloud computing for business. Aberdeen research found from 2017 to 2018, “on premise” ERP dropped from 21% to 12%, and SaaS increased from 21% to 36%. And according to Gartner, 40% of new ERP deployments for large businesses will be cloud SaaS by 2021.
While robotic process automation (RPA) is at the heart of many digital transformation efforts, it’s all too common for organizations to roll out their software robots in a piecemeal manner. For example, a company’s accounting department deploys a robot to automate invoice processing, while operations rolls out another to expedite shipping requests, without coordination between the departments. This decentralized approach presents a risk – one that leads to problems later.
