Documentation challenges? You’re doing it wrong, says Nitro

Research by Nitro suggests that the state of document workflows, processes and tools across the average enterprise leaves a lot to be desired – and knowledge workers are suffering as a result.

Just three percent of knowledge workers indicate they’re happy with the way documents are managed at their companies, according to the survey.

Employee satisfaction has knock-on effects for customer experience, so if they’re struggling with paper-based processes or laborious workflows, the ultimate impact is on the bottom line, Nitro confirms.

“Many CIOs I speak with aren’t aware of how much the lack of digital document tools is truly impacting their business,” said Sam Chandler, CEO and founder of Nitro.

“Not only can digitisation help companies improve the way they manage and process documents and help workers be more productive, but the positive impact it can have on employee satisfaction and customer experience is undeniable.”

Key findings

*Knowledge workers perform an average of seven different actions when working with documents, with a majority performed multiple times throughout the day

*53 percent are still printing documents multiple times per day
