Top Stories in the December 2018 Issue:

  • The Editorial:  “This Work Don't Flow”Workflow is neither a new term nor one that’s crossed over into the everyday vernacular of most business people, let alone the unwashed masses. Conversely, it’s become almost de rigueur amongst those in the office imaging world.
