Disruptive Innovations in Document Management

Almost half of all activities can be automated — with technologies already available today. And when machines are able to understand natural language, it won’t be just 45 percent but as much as 58 percent. 

Management consultancy McKinsey published these figures back at the end of 2015. They relate to the American employment market and are a clear indication that the fourth industrial revolution will not even stop short of activities carried out by the knowledge workers.

A radical upheaval has begun. It will bring opportunities for enterprises and for the workforce in that machines will be able to do arduous, monotonous, repetitive and dull jobs in future — around the clock, 365 days a year. Swiss Post Solutions, an arm of the Swiss Post Group, is pushing this development — in its document management processes, not only in Switzerland but also internationally.
