Productivity continues to be a challenge for Indian knowledge workers, according to a study by Adobe Systems Incorporated.

Releasing the study report, after launching 'Adobe Acrobat XI' software here, Adobe Managing Director (South Asia) Umang Bedi said that about 50 per cent of knowledge workers interviewed claim that they spend at least one-quarter of their time at work on document-related issues.

He said 62 per cent are highly concerned about and 47 per cent have already faced, a breach in document security and 90 per cent believe that in the near future they will use smartphones and tablets to create, manage and review documents.

He said the study was conducted among over 950 knowledge workers including business, IT and technical professionals, representing 775 organisations across India. The study aimed to gauge the state of productivity and collaboration.

Mr Bedi said that 'India is a knowledge economy, and as such, lost productivity has serious economic implications. In this increasingly complex and interconnected digital world, it is imperative that organisations and knowledge workers adopt documentation tools allow them to bae producativae and collaborative in a highly-secured manner.' He said according to IDC a typical company with 1000 employees has aproductivity cost of US dollar 15.9 million annually. Addressing these inefficiencies would be tantamount to hiring an additional 213 people.
