One such stride is what I like to call a “desktop productivity Swiss Army knife,” – a single software app that can be a game-changer. For example, whether a document you need to be able to access or transform is paper or digital, Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you need a tool that can help you turn it into an accessible and searchable PDF, quickly and easily routing it within your document management system without losing fidelity.
Got a big PowerPoint presentation that you need to send to a colleague? You can PDF it and ship it, and it will meet your recipient wherever they are. Have a report you’ve been working on, but you’re about to head out on a business trip? Put down that pen – we’ve moved past the days of marking up copy in ink on the train and then retyping the whole thing. The limits on documents that have existed are being done away with – and workers – whether at their desktops or on the road – are better off as a result. Not being able to easily transform documents
used to be so frustrating, and new technology has been a total productivity game-changer for me and those who I help in my personal and professional life. Editing PDF forms is also another hassle that workers are all too familiar with and can use new solutions to convert into fillable forms via PDF or Microsoft Word. How many of us have printed a locked PDF, filled it out by hand, only to have to scan and resend it again?
