Today is World Paper Free Day, an initiative by AIIM (The Global Community of Information Professionals) to reduce the amount of paper generated in workplaces by everyday tasks.
The UK government's Cloud First initiative is helping organisations embrace digital document processes. This helps drive efficiencies and reduces the costs associated with ink-signing paper documents, scanning and returning them.
The Cabinet Office GOV.UK Verify project also provides the ability to check someone's trusted identity when they need to authenticate themselves. What is needed are trusted document workflow and signing solutions that make it easy to embrace simplicity with high security and long-term protection against unauthorised or fraudulent changes.
