who want their employees to be able to link to critical internal resources will
use smart tags. Smart tags will be ideal for process documents such as invoices
or expense reports. For example, suppose that a user is entering a tracking
number. A smart tag recognizes the item, and when the user clicks the smart

document—that particular order in the inventory system. Another option on the
smart tag menu might fill in the details from that invoice automatically, saving
the user keystrokes, time, and error-checking.
