Now, the pandemic seems controlled (at least we hope so), but companies didn’t hold on their digital migration efforts. People has adapted, and a lot of us still work and study from home!
Let’s get to the point here… all businesses workflows, decisions and operations are made based on a data analysis. In a daily base, this data usually come from documents handled by the company’s different departments.
