PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Shifting Preferences

Lisa Lee, CEBS, FLMI

My company has long offered public-facing forms in both paper and online formats. The idea, of course, is to be easy to do business with. I wonder if other organizations have observed the shift in preferences that we’re seeing.

Have We Reached the Digital Tipping Point?
