Convert to MS Office

Are you one of the many businesses that rely on hard copy documents? Maybe you’ve got an archive full of static digital files, such as image-only PDFs. While these serve their purpose, there comes a time when you need to make subtle updates to them. Typically you’d find the digital source file, make the necessary changes, then reprint or reformat the document.

But what happens when you don’t have that source file? Who gets burdened with recreating that document from scratch, and at what cost? You could assign the task to an internal worker, meaning it’s just an internal cost, or you could outsource it to an agency. Either way, it’s a time-consuming and expensive way to make those minimal changes that often happen throughout a document’s lifecycle.

So, what options do you have to minimise the impact to your business in terms of cost and productivity?

While there are numerous solutions available, managing additional desktop software packages or subscribing to cloud services for occasional use may be a bit excessive, especially if it’s only needed sporadically.

This is where Xerox® Workflow Central Platform comes in. It’s designed to support those ad hoc business requirements such as converting hard copy or image-only documents to editable Microsoft files (Word, Excel or PowerPoint), while keeping the original format of the document intact.

Beyond MS Office conversion, Workflow Central offers so much more, making it a compelling alternative to enterprises and individuals with occasional needs. It eliminates the need for multiple individual tools that require proactive monitoring and maintenance.

So how can Workflow Central's "Convert to MS Office" workflow help keep your business productive while keeping cost down? Here are a few examples:

Workers on the go no longer need to call the back office to make last minute changes. Easy access from mobile devices ensures they can edit documents or screen captures on the fly and avoid time-consuming calls or even journeys back to the office.
