About this webinar:

When the Portable Document Format (PDF) was introduced in the 1990s, few foresaw the fixed-layout standard being at the centre of so many business processes decades later. Yet, after years of evolution, it is with good reason. With the right software behind it, the PDF enables device and OS-agnostic connectivity and collaboration, allowing stakeholders to avoid cumbersome feedback over email. It also allows businesses to boost productivity and reduce their carbon footprint by moving away from paper-based proofing and contracts (the latter thanks to e-signatures).

In the age of multi-cloud and cloud-based productivity tools, it’s also vital to integrate PDF tools with the infrastructure in which successful digital businesses operate today – reducing friction between the large range of tools the modern office worker must contend with.

Across all of this, cyber security is paramount. The desire to control document access and internal workflows, enforce compliance and avoid shadow IT, takes up huge amounts of senior leadership and IT time. The PDF has a key role to play here.

This research will gauge the extent to which PDFs are integral to the workflows of organisations today, highlight common objections and misconceptions, and explore how businesses can better exploit the PDFs enduring potential. It will also reveal the time, money and carbon savings to be had, and the efficiency gains on offer.

In this Computing webinar in association with Adobe we will find out to what extent the PDFs is an integral tool to the workflows of organisations today, discover what the common objections and misconceptions are, and explore how businesses can better exploit the PDFs enduring potential.
