Learn how the right PDF editor can make work easier for your employees, no matter where they're located.

Flexibility is a top priority for the modern workforce. As employees continue to work on the go, across different locations, from multiple devices, they expect the right tools to help them do their best work.

Are you empowering your teams with the digital tools they need to be collaborative, efficient and happy?

In this article, we’ll show you how a quality PDF editor can make their workflows stress-free.

1. Collaborate From Anywhere

Dispersed, digital and no longer solely operating from the desktop, employees want to have a say where, when and how they get their work done. But a recent study revealed that only 51% of knowledge workers say their company provides them with collaboration tools to work remotely.

While business leaders continue to debate the optimal working model, organizations must be prepared with the right technology to empower every employee.

Secure PDF collaboration tools support real-time teamwork and working from anywhere, so your teams never miss a moment:

2. Integrate Your PDF Editor With Your Favorite Tools

On top of evolving work norms, today’s teams rely on a diverse range of tools and applications to get their work done. And that can mean switching between multiple applications throughout the day—time that could be spent on high value projects.

Your employees deserve a stress-free, end-to-end digital document experience.

To support high performance and seamless workflows, Nitro’s PDF, eSigning and analytics solutions integrate with each other and many of the most common business-critical programs and systems, including:

  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • Microsoft 365
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Dropbox
  • Salesforce
  • Zapier
  • And many more

3. Get Documents Signed in Minutes, Not Hours

Are your teams signing a lot of documents? If they’re stuck in manual signing processes, spending hours printing, scanning and filing, then they’re not working as efficiently as they could be.

Investing in an integrated tool that combines secure PDF collaboration and signing is the way forward in building an agile and flexible work environment. Employees can eliminate slow, outdated processes and say goodbye to the hefty price tags that come with it.

By standardizing their PDF workflow solution with Nitro, they’ve streamlined processes, accelerated productivity and eliminating the need for—and cost of—additional tools.
