What is digitization in business?

Transitioning from paper-based processes to a digital office is a must in today’s world. Businesses are looking for documents automation solutions that allow them to reduce costs on paper and office equipment, eliminate document errors, and delight employees and customers with an intuitive digital experience.
The first step in beginning your digital transformation is choosing intelligent document solutions that convert paper documents into digital format.
Working with digital documents allows organizations to:
Save time by preparing accurate documents for multiple recipients
Sign documents and collect digital signatures online
Fill out documents on any desktop or mobile device and submit them in seconds
Instantly share documents with customers and partners
Efficiently organize and store documents in bulk

Data digitization for streamlined and efficient processes

Completing a digital transformation stands to benefit companies in any industry. Digital workflows are especially effective when implemented in finance, legal, education, and healthcare industries, where the cost of data errors and lost documents is high.
Let’s see what business processes you can quickly digitize in organizations of any size:
Employee onboarding and offboarding
Performance reviews
Contract negotiation and execution
Collecting patient intake forms
Sending invoices
Loan approvals
Insurance claims management
New equipment requests

What do we need to go digital?

Start your digital transformation by identifying the parts of your workflow that take up the most time and resources. The next step is to digitally scan documents you use for this workflow such as NDAs for employee onboarding. Save these documents as PDFs and organize them in folders by department or employee. Even minor steps like these simplify the process of sending, accessing, and updating NDAs within your organization.
The next step is to choose the right document management solution. Consider these factors during your search:
Features you need for your everyday tasks
A pricing model and an estimated ROI model
Security and compliance standards
Out-of-the-box integrations with the services you already use or will use in the future (CRMs, ERPs, clouds, mail services, etc.)
pdfFiller is the first step on your road to digital process automation. pdfFIller allows you to create, edit, share, and securely store your PDF documents online, from any desktop or mobile device.

How to measure KPI when implementing a digital transformation

pdfFiller changes the way customers create, edit, manage and send their documents by eliminating any need for printers, scanners, document delivery services, etc.
Track these factors to measure the effectiveness of pdfFiller in your organization:
Money and time savings
Our customers report that pdfFiller saves them 37.8% in working hours per week, totaling $132 per employee every week. Moreover, pdfFiller saved users over three million dollars in courier costs in the past year — assuming that each document sent for signing would need to be shipped using USPS Priority Mail Express each way. Having to overnight a document for signing just once a month is already more expensive than a monthly pdfFiller subscription.
Increased productivity
pdfFiller simplifies data collection across multiple industries. Accountants, medical professionals, real estate agents, and insurance brokers all take advantage of the ability to save time by using pdfFiller to collect the information they need to do their jobs most efficiently.
Improved customer relations
pdfFiller reduces the amount of time spent on creating and editing PDFs, sending documents for signing, collecting customer information, and keeping recipients updated on the latest changes.
