Looking to become more efficient this year? We have some great tips on how to make your documents work harder so you don't have to.
Resolutions, goals, intentions, dreams—whatever you want to call them—end-of-year pressures are real! The “new year, new you” mindset, the forced fresh start, and the (often inevitable) feeling of defeat if things don’t work out as planned.
What if this year you made practical, actionable changes that could help digitally transform how you work. Because who wouldn’t want to free up time, improve focus and boost morale?
In this article, you'll learn 5 ways to improve document productivity so you can set yourself up for success in the new year and beyond.
1. Stop reinventing the wheel with every document
Starting your documents from scratch for each task or project is a waste of your valuable time. Luckily, there’s a much more efficient way of working.
By having access to a library of customizable document templates each time you start a task, you could save considerable time. No more playing around with document colors, fonts, sizes and layouts. No more digging through your archives looking for past projects. You’ll work faster, be more consistent and you can adjust your templates as your needs evolve. It’s a productivity no-brainer.
Whether it's for personal or business needs, Nitro’s free collection of thousands of PDF templates will save you tons of time.
2. Automate your end-to-end document workflows
Using automation to its full potential is one of the fastest ways to take your productivity to the next level. With streamlined workflows and digital documents, you can eliminate repetitive tasks that could be draining your efficiency levels. Not to mention a host of other benefits like improved accuracy, reduced errors, better visibility into the progress of your tasks and faster turnaround times. That means you can swap hours spent dealing with documents for strategic, high-value projects.
With Nitro’s trusted PDF, eSign and analytics solutions, you can create, send and sign documents in just a few simple steps. You can also integrate with your existing systems, processes and applications to take efficiency to the next level. It’s time to say goodbye to tedious, manual document creation for good.
3. Make security and compliance a breeze
With identity fraud, data breaches and cyberattacks on the rise, security and compliance is top of mind for most people and organizations today. But let’s be real, staying up to date with legal and compliance requirements isn’t always straightforward. If you’re in a highly regulated industry or doing any kind of business or transactions across borders, eSign requirements become even more complex. That’s why leaving it to the experts can give you the peace of mind you need.
At Nitro, we are dedicated to protecting our customers, without compromising your experience. For organizations, our Nitro Sign solution is one of the most secure and compliant eSigning solutions on the market. We offer industry and country-specific certifications as well as global legal compliance verified by DLA Piper.
4. Give yourself the flexibility to grow
Having the right digital tools means you can communicate, collaborate and work on documents whether you are in the office or working remotely.
5. Be more strategic by leveraging data and analytics
Data is a powerful ally in a company's digital transformation. IT and business leaders must drive growth and make strategic decisions—particularly for software investments. By gaining visibility into user adoption and performance, you can analyze and optimize how everyone works.
Nitro's powerful analytics tool provides real-time usage data for Nitro PDF and eSign solutions in one streamlined, easy-to-use solution. These actionable insights can help you streamline processes, increase ROI and pinpoint opportunities for growth. There’s even an automatically calculated Productivity Score in the platform to monitor performance at a glance and identify where efficiency improvements could be made.
