“We are experiencing a period of rapid changes that are combining to disrupt conventional work practices as the conversion to a digital workplace occurs. This is particularly so within the office environment where there are a number of significant trends affecting the way we are starting to operate.
-The increased use of software for automation
-A transition away from purchasing via individual transactions to bundled services
-Reduced print volumes
-Increasingly mobile workforce
-Leveraging connectivity and the internet of things
-Smart phones along with the 24/7 access to business information they enable
These trends are combining to transform the workplace, a transformation that is reducing costs and improving efficiency. Businesses that leverage these efficiencies start to build competitive advantages because they have lower costs, and because they have access to actionable business intelligence which enables them to make faster and better decisions.”
