To contribute to the panorama, technology companies already provide solutions that reduce paper consumption and optimize resources, and fortunately, educational institutions have bet on digitization and today are witnessing its benefits.
Many of the universities in Latin America are digitized and have migrated from physical to electronic signature processes. A transformation that, in addition to contributing to a drastic decrease in paper consumption. Also, it has optimized legal requirements, facilitated both administrative and educational issues, and overcome a series of legal challenges.
Without going too far, the ICESI University of Colombia, recognized as one of the best educational institutions in the country, has become an environmental benchmark for its zero-paper policy, which aims to digitize processes.

In the development of this digital transformation and strengthening of the processes, we worked with the company CYS Technology (as an authorized channel), which together with Adobe and the University, created a series of training sessions so that all the areas responsible for the evolution could join the strategy. The accompaniment of both was permanent and timely at every moment of sale and post-sale, carrying out various training sessions and providing technical support for the solution, he assures Leonardo Jaramillohead of document management at ICESI.
