Accusoft sheds light on document management practices in today’s workplace through a new data study

TAMPA, Fla. — Sept. 29, 2016 — Accusoft, the leader in content and imaging solutions for developers, , released a data study uncovering standard workplace practices around document management. The report addresses common document management policies and offers solutions to create a more efficient, secure workflow.

More than 100 U.S. IT managers and 250 full-time employees were surveyed to reveal what document management challenges organizations face, and how these needs are addressed.

It’s important for us to understand where companies are struggling when it comes to document management,” said Accusoft CEO Jack Berlin. “Accusoft sets out to help solve those problems, and by gathering data around these challenges, we can continue to create tools that address top business challenges and enhances the document lifecycle process.

Key findings from the study include:


The study also takes a look at the growing use of mobile devices in the workplace and what this means for document management and security. According to Accusoft’s findings, 74 percent of organizations have implemented some form of a bring your own device (BYOD) policy, but only half of this group require that employees have their devices approved by the IT department. As more employees move toward mobile, IT departments have a growing need to create adaptable and secure processes.

“Our ultimate goal is to improve business productivity,” said Berlin. “In the study, we offer actionable solutions for organizations to fix broken processes and ensure document security.”
