With businesses of all sizes undergoing digital transformation, the role of printed documents has changed. Many businesses are transitioning documents to digital by using document scanners as well as document management systems. This represents a change in workflow as well as technology. As businesses change their processes to integrate more digital documents, the role and process of print will continue to evolve.
Today’s digitalization trend has turned remote working from a dream into reality. Remote work has been favored by employers not just due to rising real estate costs, but also due to increase in employee productivity where they accomplish more in less time when telecommuting. Telecommuting increases efficiency by eliminating distractions such as spur-of-the-moment meetings, water cooler chat, and noisy coworkers. As is apparent in its name, telecommuting also does away with commuting, so time spent sitting in traffic and finding parking can be put toward actual work.
If your goal is to capture more work from today’s print-embracing marketers, your current sheet-fed digital press might not be up to the quest. Brands and businesses want direct mail, invitations, packaging and other pieces that earn maximum impact for their marketing spend, and when you bring these value-add capabilities to the table, you benefit handsomely. Print service providers’ profit margins on digital print enhancement can be high (50% to 400%), resulting in a quick return on investment (ROI)1 — for printers with the right equipment.
Most of us have multiple skin marks and blemishes all over our body. This makes it quite difficult for the average person to know which blemish is dangerous, and which one is normal. There are many horror stories of skin cancer being discovered too late. This is the main reason why it's really important to have a good look at your skin on a regular basis, and if you find that any of the moles or skin freckles, as they are commonly known, appear slightly abnormal, then do see your dermatologist or family medicine doctor at your earliest convenience.
Robots, looking as we usually imagine them or see in movies – androids or other humanlike robots –still are on their way to a wide use in our business and private life. For now, they are mostly engaged in promotion and entertainment at public events and conferences. Needless to say, they get the wow effect, but still are of little use to business.
How many times have we heard the phrase, “Ignorance is bliss?” When it comes to protecting the business documents, they handle every day – or more importantly, the data contained in them – most small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) have long had the luxury of believing that hackers only targeted large corporation. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.
Over the past decade, we’ve seen a proliferation of smart devices that possess the capabilities of information processing and network connectivity. The defining characteristic of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, previously restricted to their physical environment, are now connected to a computer network. This network could be a home network, an industrial intranet or even the whole internet. This means that a device, or a gateway that connects a device to the network, is accessible by someone who presents the right credentials, or bypasses the credentials altogether.
