Dynamic PDF Stamps are an important tool in the movement of businesses to automate their processes in recent years. And with good reason, as they eliminate costs that are inherent with manual stamping and help increase the speed and efficiency of workflow processes in the modern workplace.
Dynamic PDF Stamps – Not a DIY Business Tool
As is generally the case with almost any business tool (e.g.-software, hardware, process), you tend to get what you pay for. Oftentimes, the seemingly cheap and easy alternative ends up costing companies big time in terms of issues created and those that aren’t fully or properly addressed.
The “I’m going to save my company some short-term dollars” mentality, while commendable, can often cost the business significantly more over the long run.
A Little Knowledge…
One such example is the electronic or PDF stamp. Many companies have made the mistake of believing they need only purchase the requisite software and set their IT department on the task of creating exactly what’s needed to address their issues.
Heck, there are videos online addressing the issue of programming electronic stamps, so how difficult can it be?
Well, as the saying goes, “A little knowledge can be dangerous.”
How often have you heard of, or directly experienced, a disastrous “new initiative” scenario? You know the type, where the company, or unit thereof, decides they are going to institute or rollout a newfangled process or system into the way they’ve heretofore operated, only to witness a train wreck some time later?
Almost every company has experienced this in some manner. In seeking to address an issue(s) or need(s), decisions are made that are intended to improve workflow. But for whatever reason, the fix didn’t work – in fact, oftentimes the initiative created new problems that made things much worse for the company.
One of the most infamous instances involved the baggage-handling system that was initially integrated into the newly-constructed Denver International Airport back in the early ‘90s. DIA was slated to open in October of 1993, utilizing a revolutionary baggage-handling system capable of dealing with the enormous traffic projected to move through the airport daily.
Long and short, the system never worked, eventually being tagged “The baggage system from hell.” It cost the airport authority overseeing the project hundreds of millions to install, and more so to basically scrap for a scaled-down system that was workable. Ultimately, the airport opening was delayed until 1995. To this day, the DIA baggage-handling system disaster is cited as the ultimate case study in a project gone wrong.
It’s All Relative
Granted, the decision to switch from manual to electronic stamps doesn’t rise to that experienced by the Airport Authority with DIA, but productivity, costs and risks are all relative, inevitably effecting the bottom line for companies of any size.
Seek Pro Help
When it comes to creating PDF Stamps, it’s important to recognize that they are only as dynamic as the design and programming built into them.
Frankly, even recognizing the many features and benefits that can be derived from their use is something beyond the typical IT employee.
Fact is, only an experienced programming team can create electronic stamps that are quickly produced, easy to integrate and that address a company’s specifications, branding and overall needs. Moreover, they need to be designed and programmed to ensure they are fully dynamic – user friendly and easily editable to quickly adapt to changing situations and personnel.
So Why Absolutely Paperless?
Frankly, we’re good at what we do and we’ve been doing it for a long time. Founded in 2005 in Brighton, Co., well before the lexicon of workplace automation took hold in the modern workplace, we opened shop to address common office issues that local businesses were experiencing.
We understood then that companies, small and large alike, were burdened with issues stemming from their reliance on simple paper-based processes, such as applying manual stamps or markings to all sorts of workplace documents they dealt with daily.
A Big Problem Then – Even More So Today
The problems of the past are even more harmful to companies today. The issues long inherent with manual stamping have grown well beyond that of being cumbersome, prone to high error rates and often the cause of productivity-killing bottlenecks in a company’s workflow.
The increased costs due to inefficiency, and the resulting detrimental impact on the bottom line, are too serious to ignore anymore – easily as much as a 20-fold impact, which can spell doom for the typical company.
And then there is the issue that as the number of businesses automate (estimated at 7 in 10 by 2025), a company will be forced to jettison their paper-based processes and digitize to simply be able to do business with vendors and their customers in the very near future.
