5 new ways to boost an agency ambitious brink

Turning a crisis into opportunity is one of the chief goals of any Chief executive officer (CEO). Luckily, that is easier compared to it might look. An in-depth investigation of the company operations and a prompt and sufficient investment decision in information technologies could possibly be, as per DocPath, the medication that the business needs to boost its competitiveness.

In periods much like this, where a worldwide economic crisis threatens various organizations, most businesses tend to worry about what is arriving and choose to minimize budgets in areas that can be strategic when effectively managed, just like R&D, Marketing or Training. Yet, these sectors may basically be the ones to assist the corporation arise potent from a dilemma and be a step prior to its rivals. It is where the 1st business opportunity lies.

– Control over printing bills

Many businesses are so distracted and absorbed by their stressful day by day functions that they omit to focus on activities that are requiring a lot of resources and are causing unwanted costs. Commonly, one of those unnoticed procedures pertains to printing of any sort of document or communication. If perhaps CEOs may rapidly seek out the real costs of printing documents within their agencies, in terms of paper and toner waste, multiple steps might most probably be taken to resolve the issue.

Fortunately, at present, a wide range of document management solutions facilitate businesses to have good control over the number of documents which are being printed out. Most of these remedies generate reports to provide a global idea of the recent condition relating to hardware and supplies demands, but with the appropriate software for document print control, businesses can save up to around 25% in printing expenditures.

– On-demand printing in business office networks

Being able to produce documents in any sort of conditions and optimization of process execution periods are fundamental conditions for any organization. Yet, undertaking these activities will be rather challenging for establishments with large office networks covering different geographical locations.

On this sort of organizations, confirming that every employee is employing the appropriate version of the specified form, getting a printed format of any form whenever required or enabling people to see the form on-screen, can all seem very hard. Once again, to overcome these problems, the very best solution is to go for a way-out that entails carrying-out an in-depth, on demand printing system.

– Documents in check

Typically, one more significant aspect for any company is being able to securely store all its company documents and retrieve them later whenever necessary. In case they use an inadequate document manager then they undoubtedly run the chance of shedding important documents or of documents falling in to bad hands. This, consequently, could tremendously wear down the company image.

The document management system chosen must give total command over all the documents; however should also let per-user accessibility and edit authorizations, to prevent annoying surprises whenever a document is opened.

– Distribution of documents in a Web location

One amongst the significant reasons why businesses expend lots of finances on print techniques can be seen in our recent society, which yet needs a swap of mindset. In fact, receipts, legal contracts, details about modern services, etc. are especially still shipped to clients in paper format. This would mean that organizations are printing high quantities of docs and spending resources on covering tasks and batch sorting activities, among some other chores.

There isn’t any issue that modern means of information interchange, just like the electronic ID card and/or electronic invoicing, are creating innovative communications channels with buyers. As such, buying a solution that facilitates computer users to demand a document to be at once produced and shown on screen thru any browser might absolutely be another step onward.

In this regard, DocPath proposes businesses to evaluate their particular business processes related to printing and to look at the option of employing an adequate document management system. A, great document software diminishes document-related expenditures and efforts over most organizations might anticipate.

A step ahead in document software

DocPath’s Document Software Continues Gaining Ground in Latin America

DocPath’s document and output management solutions are improving document processes for an increasing number of organizations and institutions in Latin America.

DocPath’s success in the area resides in its knowledge of the specific market dynamics and its customer-centric approach in every document management project, fostered by its growing parter network that has been further strengthened with the recent incorporation of InfoIntelligent.

Atlanta (GA), February 26, 2015 – After 14 years in the Brazil market, the combined efforts of DocPath and its Latin American Partners have resulted in the DocPath customer base increasing at a steady pace, not only in Brazil, but across all Latin America. The recent implementation of DocPath’s output and document management system at different Latin American delegations of one of the leading insurance companies in the world and the expansion of its parter network —strengthening its presence by incorporating InfoIntelligent into the company’s Partner network— further showcases the acceptance of DocPath in the Latin American market.

Expanding Business

Latin America’s economy is growing. And as businesses continue to expand, the need for more advanced process and workflow systems and services has arisen. As observed by DocPath, document management as well as output management software and scheduled print services seem to be on top of the investment list of many companies.

As a result, DocPath is firmly expanding business across the American continent. With support from its main strategic business partners in the region, such as Ricoh, Quality Work, InfoIntelligent and SGS Team, DocPath has become one of the leaders in a niche where companies are waiting for next-level document management software.

DocPath’s solutions are currently installed at national and international banks —including the major financial institutions of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Mexico–, retailers, manufacturers and important insurance companies. In fact, DocPath has significantly increased the number of document management projects in Latin America from 2012 to 2015 and the coming years look even more promising.

DocPath started its business activities in Latin America more than 15 years ago and I can safely say that it has been a very positive process for all of us. The excellent results and favorable prospects of the Latinamerican market are more than enough reason to continue and expand our presence in the region,” confirms Julio Olivares, DocPath CEO.

Geared Solutions

To address the unique user behavior and purchasing patterns in the different Latin American countries, DocPath has made sure to include a wide range of specific features in its document and output management software. As such, all of DocPath’s Solutions are multi-language and allow clients to dynamically generate their documents in the language required by their final users.

Common business needs with regards to document management in Latin America seem to consist of distributed and controlled generation of documents across a network of branch offices and online services, which includes efficient distribution of high-quality documents. For this reason, DocPath’s most successful solutions in the area are DocPath Remote Office Printing, aimed at banks and insurance companies with a large office network, DocPath Business Suite Pro, a complete document management solution for small and medium-sized enterprises, and DocPath WebDocs Generation, for companies that need cover document management and output requirments in Web environments.

The New Land of Opportunity

Over the last decade, many Latin American countries have been experiencing important growth, despite rather timid expansion numbers registered in recent years. In fact, according to studies by World Bank and IMF, the average GDP of Latin America exceeds the world’s average, creating a market that is ready for new technological products and services. For example, for 2015, the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) expects regional growth to increase to 2.2%. ECLAC also forecasts Brazil’s economy to be the growth engine of the entire region, which means that the country still more than deserves its “B” in BRICS, an acronym that represents the world’s fastest growing economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

One of the direct effects of the current economic situation is the impressive growth of the Latin American ICT market, and especially of the mobile user base. According to recent reports published by GFK, one of the world’s leading market investigation companies, in 2014, the Latin American smartphone market enjoyed the highest growth worldwide.

The reasons behind Latin America’s positive economic growth and favorable ICT climate are encouraging regulations, supportive governments, multilateral actions and a renewed business confidence that is leading to investments in new technologies. And as organizations are expanding, being able to manage their data and documents effectively and rapidly across all their offices and delegations becomes vital.

Una superpotencia tecnológica

Hace años, China irrumpió en los mercados como una nueva potencia tecnológica. Con el transcurso del tiempo, el gigante asiático se ha reposicionado en el ámbito de las TIC y ha pasado de ser la gran fábrica mundial a tener una posición cada vez más dominante en el mercado tecnológico.

Además, con casi mil cuatrocientos millones de habitantes, China es el país más poblado del planeta. En las últimas décadas, se ha convertido en el mayor productor y consumidor de tecnología del mundo. Los expertos coinciden en que este crecimiento en TI desacelerará ligeramente a lo largo de la siguiente década, pero continuará al alza. Concretamente, la consultora IDC predice que el mercado de las TIC crecerá en China alrededor de un 7% este año. Además, las cifras señalan que los ciudadanos chinos gastarán unos 1.050 millones de dólares en tecnología, lo que sitúa a este país como el tercero en consumo, detrás de los Estados Unidos y Japón.
