How PDF Forms Processing Can Simplify Remote Work

Like it or not, working remotely is here to stay. Even before the global COVID-19 pandemic reared its ugly head, remote work was already gaining popularity among many industries. Now, it’s pretty standard procedure, as most of us are still locked down and offices remain closed. The good news is, the necessary shift to remote work during COVID has been quite successful, and the attitude toward it has been trending positively, from business owners and employees alike. According to a recent study by PwC, 83% of employers now say the shift to remote work has been successful for their company, which is up from 73% in June 2020.

Although remote work is becoming more favorable among the masses, it can still be challenging, especially if you are used to in-person collaboration or face-to-face business transactions. Thanks to advances in technology, your remote workflow can be highly efficient, and something that can help a lot with that is by using PDF Forms processing in combination with digital signatures.

Optimize Your Remote Workflow with PDF Forms Processing

In this age of remote work, operating without an automated PDF forms process can leave you performing manual data entry along with the associated employee costs. Forms processing technology allows for the efficient collection (and management) of information from your customers, prospects, employees, students, or partners spanning many different sectors including government, finance, healthcare and education sectors.

How PDF Forms can help with your remote workflow:

  • Quickly capture the data you need, securely and electronically
  • Streamline gathering bulk form data by using barcoded forms
  • Improve your customers’ experience by making filling out and signing digital forms easy for them
  • Eliminate scanning & faxing or emailing paperwork by converting your paper forms into digitally signable ones

Using Digital Signatures Along with PDF Forms

You can also keep your digital documents secure and valid while working remotely by using an important counterpart to PDF Forms: digital signatures. As more paperless, online interactions increase, it is important that incoming business documents like contracts, medical forms, tax forms, etc. are authenticated and compliant. Using digital signature technology can make sure you achieve that electronically.

How digital signatures can help simplify your remote workflow:

  • Get all necessary business documents signed quickly & electronically – i.e. contracts, legal documents, HR agreements, client/employee onboarding documents, etc.    
  • Easily validate the authenticity of a digital signature
  • Allow your remote employees to capture customer consent via any device, including on mobile devices
