Electronic documents mean not only how you reproduce docs, but also how you make a more efficient process (reducing time, saving money, etc).In this sense, we need to highlight one of the main drivers: “Internet”.
Internet keeps on helping the industry to improve processes through data automation; systems´ interfaces; players networking; etc.
However, in spite of these benefits, there are significant challenges to meet, such as “Worldwide acceptance”…
Automated/Interfaced systems, like edoxOnline, which consistently produce all of these shipping and commercial documents required by the industry, issued under electronic basis, and accepted worldwide by the different players, would definitely impact on the industry´s efficiencies.
In the coming years we will be seeing another high impact because of the so called IOT (Internet of the Things).
Trustworthy information, in real time, from silos to different players´ pcs and/or documents will be available for different purposes. We can now get sensors allocated for real time results like weight, temperature, moisture, volume, protein, etc.
