With COVID-19 self isolation, workers have been adjusting to a new daily routine. Major businesses, and small brick-and-mortar private businesses, have had to quickly adapt and prepare for shifting document workflows online, bracing themselves for higher volumes in online transactions over in-person interactions. Right now, technology is crucial to keeping customers connected to stores and services.
