More often-than-not, paperwork doesn’t start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. For many professionals who travel outside the office or work in the field, heavy reporting requirements can oftentimes extend the 40-hour work week as they strive to keep up with documentation and other reporting demands.
Social service professionals need to diligently complete paperwork as part of client assessments, or when preparing collaborations with other professionals. Insurance adjusters are required to fill out and submit assessment when responding to and completing claims. Legal professionals often take notes during client meetings, to be set aside for later transcription back at the office.
Professionals who work in these document-intensive industries need to meet critical reporting deadlines and ensure accurate and timely communication, oftentimes to meet business and regulatory requirements – all in the course of a regular work day.
If you’re like many of these professionals, you may constantly find yourself dividing time between the office and the road. So, it’s important that your productivity tools support a fluid workflow—one that lets you start documentation in one location and finish it in another without any hassle.
Today, thanks to robust, cloud-based mobile dictation solutions, professionals who often work outside the office are better equipped to get business paperwork done from anywhere. Documents, reports and forms can be dictated in real time, not only for immediate productivity gains but for improved accuracy and specificity. And content sharing platforms, like Evernote, provide immediate access to and sharing of content across devices from any location.
Intelligent mobile and cloud-based applications may not reduce the amount of documentation you face each day; but may help maximize productivity so you can get more done between 9 and 5.
