The State of Document Management in Education 2017/18

Following the 2017 Association of School Business Administrators (ASBA) conference, Fuji Xerox sent a survey to conference attendees asking for feedback on the state of document management in private education.

Many businesses also struggle to get a handle on the cost of office printing and document management, which can seriously impact their bottom line in ways they don’t even realise. Lastly, many businesses are struggling to take full advantage of mobile technology, which …
