We often discuss the benefits of automating your document-to-PDF conversion processes, but the other side of that coin also needs to be mentioned: the risks involved in taking the manual route. By relying on your end users to convert your business-critical documents to PDF, you can inadvertently introduce a number of complications which can have snowballed ramifications throughout your organization.  

Having worked with a number of organizations in a range of industries from life sciences to insurance, we’ve noted that the risks of manual document conversion can be measured in financial terms. Many of our customers have told us that if document conversion errors and delays occur, they can lose up to $1,000,000 in revenue per day for every day their business is affected.

Take a look at this video with industry experts as they discuss the risks of manual document-to-PDF conversion.

Turning risks into opportunities

While the financial risks of manual document conversion can seem a bit daunting, it’s important to remember that they are actually opportunities for major improvement in document-centric processes.

By automating your document conversion workflows throughout the organization, you can achieve significant benefits including:

  • Consistency of output throughout business units and departments
  • Optimization of human resources where end users can focus on their key tasks instead of document conversion
  • Elimination of manual errors and problems in the workflow
  • Standardization in the diversity of PDF files
  • Savings in time and money

Of course, these are just a few things that can be achieved by taking the automated route. Learn more about how the risks can be managed in this white paper.
