We could talk for hours (and we do) about factors that contribute to and detract from productivity in the workplace and tactical approaches to address these but for now, let’s take a look at six common use cases for implementing next-level PDF productivity identified by experts at Zebra, Continental, Howden, JLL, Swiss Re, and T-Mobile. Happy reading!

1. Deploy document solutions across a newly acquired team

Whether standardizing PDF tools across an existing team or quickly bringing a new team up to speed, it’s important to keep productivity high and lost time low as people get used to their new way of working.

For example, after an acquisition, Zebra quickly grew to over 7,000 employees. During this transition, change management was essential so that team members felt supported as they adjusted to new tools and workflows. As a result of the acquisition, more employees moved to Nitro to edit and manage PDFs. Zebra depended on the Nitro onboarding team and training materials to quickly get comfortable with the product.

2. Equip more employees with affordable PDF solutions

Equipping every knowledge worker—not just the “lucky few”—with the digital tools to accomplish their most common workflows quickly and easily will help your organization move towards a more efficient and modern workplace.

IT stakeholders at Continental faced several challenges with their deployment of Adobe® Acrobat®. The complicated licensing model was expensive and hard to expand beyond a select group of users, leaving many employees to find ad hoc document solutions on their own. They turned to Nitro to standardize PDF workflows on a single, affordable platform and reduce the amount of waste from printing and storing paper contracts.

Simple, straightforward pricing and expert onboarding support helped Continental make the transition with ease and equip their entire team with tools for PDF productivity and eSigning.

3. Smarter technology procurement and world-class security

Technical complexity and outdated systems put your company and data at risk. The good news is you no longer need to choose between usability and security.

The IT team at Howden wanted to scale by combining global workflows for PDF editing and eSigning to a single platform and increase data security. They eliminated old versions of the PDF software in use at the time—many of these were outdated and were eating into the IT budget.

Howden turned to Nitro to ensure users got the PDF editing and eSigning capabilities they needed from a single, secure platform. Now they enjoy a lower risk of non-compliance, more cost savings, and increased productivity right across the organization.

4. Global digital transformation

Make large-scale moves toward digital transformation by leveraging Nitro’s support team to educate new users and facilitate faster, paper-free workflows.

When JLL implemented its five-year plan for digital transformation many of their document processes, like invoicing and AP workflows, were still paper-based and manual. For the global commercial real estate firm, their plan included greatly reducing paper contracts to eventually eliminate them altogether. Only a fraction of employees had access to PDF editing tools, creating workflow bottlenecks and limiting the adoption of digital processes.

They chose Nitro for its innovative roadmap, strong customer success offering, and proven ability to drive user productivity to equip their employees with the best document productivity solution.

5. Scale and reduce waste

To truly go digital, you need to expand employee access to tools that allow them to stop using paper.

For instance, Swiss Re undertook a huge initiative to overhaul its document processes, specifically migrating all insurance contracts to an electronic format. Nitro worked closely with the Swiss Re IT team to tailor implementation and deployment to meet these unique requirements without exceeding expected costs, resulting in an unprecedented scale of paper-free document workflows for the company. In the end, Swiss Re was able to equip 9,000 users with Nitro to manage its digital contracts.

6. A smooth switch from Adobe® Acrobat®

You can improve document workflows for everyone and get simple, straightforward pricing and licensing options for your IT procurement.

Driven by the goal to provide a better experience for its 1,300 Austrian employees, T-Mobile Austria was on the hunt for an alternative to Adobe® Acrobat®. Like many large companies, T-Mobile wasn’t standardized on a single version of Adobe®. They wanted to eliminate old or disparate solutions, simplify IT procurement, and see cost savings. They enlisted Nitro as their new platform for document productivity. As rollout commenced, the T-Mobile team felt confident in Nitro’s one-on-one support. The Nitro team also helped the company fulfill its unique technical needs, making compliance a top priority before and during implementation.
