burnout, working from home

So, I just asked the tech guy at one of our clients why every other PDFs I receive from them have been scanned as images. Everyone there is using the latest MS Word. All you have to do is Save As PDF. Apparently one there, won't do that. They print the Word Doc from their workstation to a printer in another room; then walk across that room to a copy machine; scans the document; and then sends the scan, now an image PDF, from the copier back to their workstation.
