The digital tools powering today’s modern businesses make work faster, easier, and more accurate. But there’s still one tool that many companies have yet to adopt – the electronic signature.
See how electronic signatures equal big benefits for everyone in your organization.
• Business leaders say that improving document processes could yield 23% reduction in business/compliance risk
• Research shows a potential 30% reduction in cost and 36% increase in revenue.
• 45% of business leaders say departmental productivity would increase
• 72% agree that improving document processes would increase customer satisfaction and/or increase brand value.
Electronic signatures can have a dramatic impact on your organization’s digital transformation initiatives, helping to increase productivity, accelerate sales, strengthen collaboration and simplify a wide range of processes across all departments.
However to truly leverage e-signatures, you must ensure that your solutions adhere to the most stringent guidelines for security and regulatory compliance. Here are the most important and pertinent questions to ask potential vendors about security.

The outlook for online electronics sales is bright, with global sales set to surpass $300 billion in 2018, a 10.7% increase over 2017. The US and Europe are anticipating healthy growth as customers (particularly millennials) become more comfortable making larger purchases online: Best Buy’s 2017 Q4 revenue from online sales in the US was up 17.9% over the previous year. But the largest contributor to this surge will be China, where the enormous population is rapidly adapting to shopping online.

Email marketing continues to be the best digital channel for ROI, so delivering dynamic, personalized messaging to the inboxes of your customers is of the utmost importance. In fact, for 77 percent of consumers, email is the preferred messaging channel, dwarfing demand for SMS, push notifications and social media communications.
When you are determining the right email marketing strategy for your business, it’s natural to wonder how the industry leaders are conducting their campaigns. A¬er all, if they’re on top, then they must be doing everything right...right?
To glean best practices, we analyzed the email marketing strategies adopted by the top 100 e-retailers in the United States to study how they engage with their customers. These companies represent industries ranging from apparel and electronics, to auto parts and pet supplies, but all have the single goal of getting their users to go from inbox to checkout.
We note what companies are doing across the board, as well as what spec

Over the past few years, improvements in mobile devices, Wi-Fi, and
cloud computing have made mobile point of sale (POS) solutions
e ective and a ordable for businesses of all sizes.
Tablets have emerged as the most popular platform for mobile POS
solutions, and you may have already heard the buzz about them.
There’s a reason for all the hullaballoo. In addition to integrating
payments and making retail transactions more e cient than using
a traditional electronic cash register (ECR), tablet POS solutions can
provide robust management data.
A tablet POS solution makes sense for many retailers, particularly if
you’re looking to:
• replace an ECR or want to have a mobile POS in place on opening day
• unlock new pro t-making and cost-saving opportunities
• expand your business
• keep pace with ever-changing customer expectations
Figuring out which tablet POS solution is the best for your business
may seem like a huge challenge. But don’t worry. Taking the right
approach, by using too

Despite the business-transforming upsides of data from the Internet of things (IoT), there’s a downside: security. Porous networks and lax users offer tantalizing access for hackers. Although most security spending is at the enterprise level, a shift is needed to secure IoT applications and provide improved governance and accountability. Electronics companies must create secure environments that safely collect, consume, share and store data on their networks. But they also must go beyond devices and consumers to close holes to factory, ecosystem and partner networks.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are necessary, but were not designed to anchor population health management (PHM). This is partly because they lack semantic interoperability, which is the ability of disparate information systems to share data and enable communications among users in a meaningful way.
This paper explains how an approach that includes a care collaboration platform can manage population health by aggregating and normalizing the necessary data.
Rapid changes in technology and software, and the nearly universal shift to electronically stored information (ESI), has made eDiscovery more complex and expensive. In a movement to simplify and standardize their procedures—and dissolve some of the extra tensions surrounding litigation—many organizations are bringing phases of the eDiscovery process in house, in particular legal hold.
Among other benefits, Code42 eDiscovery simplifies legal hold management. Litigation preparation can be a large task crossing over many departments, but will consistently feature two main players: Legal and IT. This document focuses on those two groups, and aims to enable one to see the eDiscovery world through the point of view of one group—or the other. Read more to find out the details.

Corporate computers and information and communications systems (collectively, “electronic resources”) remain the workhorse for most businesses, even as alternatives, such as third-party text messaging services, external social media, and cloud computing, flourish. Employees rely on corporate electronic resources for e-mail, calendaring, business contacts, Internet access, document creation and storage, and a multitude of other business applications. Consequently, for employers, it is critical to establish and maintain their right to inspect all information stored on, and to monitor all communications transmitted by, corporate electronic resources. The corporate acceptable use policy is the linchpin of that effort.
The ten tips below are intended to aid employers who either want to implement an acceptable use policy for the first time, or who need to update their policy.
Electronic infant protection systems have, to date, been department-level solutions. A new generation of Wi-Fi technology, however, expands infant protection hospital-wide, presenting new opportunities. This white paper reviews the steps required for healthcare IT professionals to select, design and deploy a Wi-Fi Infant Protection solution, in cooperation with clinical and security peers.
Over the past decade, businesses have had to adapt to an array of technical changes, including an increasingly hostile cyber environment. We saw the early precursors of cybercrime decades ago when computer use was limited to a relatively small group of specialists and electronics enthusiasts. Innovative programmers, some still in high school, would find ways to display annoying messages on their friends’ computers and from there spread to other devices via shared floppy disks.This kind of part practical joke-part vandalism form of malware has been overshadowed by the more serious, technically complex, and financially lucrative form of today’s cybercrime.
In this guide, we will examine major types of threats to information security that businesses face today as well as techniques for mitigating those threats. One of the most important tools available to us is SSL technology.

Without a doubt, technology has revolutionized the way business is done. The vast majority of internal and external communication is now done through email, instant messaging, VOIP and other types of electronic communication. In addition, most business documents exist in digital form. The digitization of business has had significant implications for litigation. Legal eDiscovery is now an essential part of settling cases between organizations. Previously, many companies believed that eDiscovery was only for organizations that were public or highly regulated, but now most companies recognize that electronically stored information (ESI) regulations are applicable to all organizations and there is an ever-increasing need for cost-effective eDiscovery.

The paper also provides an overview of the HITECH Act, which addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information, in part, through several provisions that strengthen the civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules.
Any organization that stores or transfers health or insurance records electronically must comply with HIPAA, from health care facilities to HR departments. PKWARE offers straightforward strategies for managing protected health information.
For most electronics and high tech companies, the Bill of Material (BOM) is the central hub of product definition activities. It conveys the information needed by various departments to get the product to market. However, current BOM development processes are not well-suited to today’s requirements.

System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.
