The outbreak of the Coronavirus affects all of us and our everyday lives drastically. Meetings become Zoom calls, the daily way to the office turns into a walk to the living room, and all kinds of paperwork are exclusively processed online. Since we have dedicated our work to the digitalization of workflows, these recent changes were not too challenging for the Scanbot team. But how about companies that are still working conventionally? If this situation teaches businesses one thing, it’s the vital necessity of making every part of the process accessible via online tools, for both employees and customers.
During the past years, everyone working in the insurance industry thought about the pros of a digital workflow and how it would make their everyday work more efficient. Some companies implemented online features like basic communication or information systems for their employees and clients to cover different parts of their workflow. They are able to enjoy the benefits of those already, especially now at times of social distancing. Others were still hesitant, even though the realization that the future is digital was and still is omnipresent. At this point, conventional companies should see the current crisis as a wake-up call and start acknowledging and implementing online-functionalities.
Since all sectors that can benefit from digitalization are dealing with personal and partly confidential data, privacy is the crucial factor. Offline solutions offer maximum protection of the processed documents. They are exclusively stored and processed on the user’s mobile device and, therefore, never reach any third-party servers. This method makes it possible to extract data, even offline. This type of offline-based solution is compliant with complex security standards, such as the GDPR. No need to worry about the safety of private data or man-in-the-middle attacks!
A digitalized workflow contains numerous advantages for both employees and customers. Especially now, in a time of many changes and uncertainty, one fact becomes pretty clear: The future is digital! No matter how the current crisis is going to develop, it stressed the need for a mobile revolution for sure. Companies should not be hesitant to create mobile solutions for their customers and invest in modern technology.
In this development, privacy should be a major priority. Focusing on offline solutions will result in the highest possible privacy standards and is the top solution for implementing features in your mobile app. Protect both you and your customers from attacks and make them benefit from convenient functionality all in one!
