4 ways PDFs can help improve work productivity.

There’s no such thing as too much work productivity. If you want to maximize efficiency in the office, here are four ways PDFs can help.

Fill and sign.

The working world is filled with forms and contracts. Especially if you’re a freelancer or in human resources, the ability to fill and sign forms quickly and easily greatly increases your work productivity.

With a PDF, you can create fillable fields that someone else can complete without altering the rest of the form. Plus, they can add their legal signature with the click of a button, making your forms and contracts official.

Merge files.

Need to send several documents to someone? Most email platforms limit the number of attachments you can include, but you can solve the problem with PDFs.

It’s easy to merge several documents into one manageable PDF file. Then, you don’t have to worry about attachment limits or losing important information. It’ll all be there in one easy-to-read document.

Simplify collaboration.

It’s often helpful to be able to collaborate on a document with a coworker. PDFs help you skip the frustrating back-and-forth by letting you leave comments, sticky notes, and more right on the document. To make it even easier, you can edit PDFs online right from your web browser using software like Adobe Acrobat online services — no software downloads necessary.

Assure top-notch security.

Collaboration means sharing your files. Sharing files could leave you exposed to security threats, unless you use PDFs. PDFs are highly secure documents that conform to industry and governmental security standards, so you never have to worry when collaborating with colleagues.

Maintain formatting.

Avoid the formatting issues brought on by viewing documents on different devices. PDFs are viewable on just about every device and maintain their formatting every time. That way, you can spend less time fixing formatting issues and more time completing projects.
