Productivity and paperwork in the public sector

Productivity and paperwork in the public sector

Given the responsibility that rests on their shoulders, day-in, day-out, it’s natural to want assurance that government workers at all levels are provided with the tools and systems to run smoothly. We all know that devising, discussing and implementing policies and amendments to legislation can be an intense and drawn-out process. Helping public service staff who are working for us achieve a suitable level of productivity should be a priority for federal, state and local authorities.

Given that printing is not going anywhere yet, the time is ripe to focus on making the entire process as efficient and effective as possible. Think about the network of printers and multifunction machines that stretches across virtually every office, and how much it typically costs a business to keep that network up and running. Other than the obvious financial costs, there are also a whole slew of impacts that might affect a business in negative ways. Loss of productivity, disruptions, waste …

Document Management Technology Roadmap – A CIO’s Vision

Recent research conducted by Fuji Xerox Singapore shows that whilst businesses are interested in cloud computing and mobility to make information available for their workers, and to enhance their document management requirements, many are still concerned about security when sharing information via the cloud.
