CIO OPINION
For companies that have turned to remote work , tech adoption has meant using equipment such as document scanners , mobile devices and multifunction printers as specific needs arise .
This automation requires taking a close look at business processes , reengineering them as needed and investing in technology that goes beyond simple document capture .
For instance , when faced with these issues , Xenith Intelligent Workplace Solutions teamed up with Kodak Alaris to create a new Scan @ Home Solution with preconfigured automatic workflows . Built on Kodak Alaris ’ INfuse Smart Connected Scanning Solution , the offering enables workers to save information to the right place , send documents to the right person and scan directly into line-of-business systems from home – all without a PC connection or local software .
Businesses that follow in Xenith ’ s footsteps will see greater productivity , with faster information onboarding and accelerated workflows , accuracy with better information capture technology and thus fewer data processing errors and profitability with cost-saving efficiency that boosts the bottom line .
A cultural shift
Society ’ s perception of remote work – already inching toward greater acceptance in recent years – has undergone a significant shift .
While many statistics focus on job losses during what has certainly been a challenging economic time , the other side of the coin reveals that we have gained numerous new remote workers because of the pandemic – and almost two-thirds of those working from home during COVID-19 want to keep it that way .
Remote work seems to be here to stay , and Digital Transformation will continue to facilitate it . For companies that haven ’ t embraced it , now is the time to invest in the strategies that enable remote work and in the technologies that spur Digital Transformation . p
