Convert your paper documents into usable information

Immediate and constant access to accurate data is essential to every organization. Competitive businesses require the ability to share and collaborate with that information in today’s technology-driven market.

That’s why organizations of all shapes and sizes are adopting new ways to scan and convert paper documents into electronic formats that provide reliable and accurate data.

Document Scanning Outsourcing

The return on investment to digitize analog paper, microfilm or microfiche documents into an electronic format such as PDF or TIFF is usually based on the following three organizational needs, (1) Instant 24/7/365 access to their documents. (2) Ability to simultaneously share documents with a large group of people sometimes in multiple locations. (3) Regulatory requirement to store documents for long periods of time.

The benefits of electronic files are that they are more secure, when properly hosted, cannot be lost, or destroyed by fire or flood.  Having the PDF or image is the first step in harvesting valuable data that may be locked in paper.

Outsourcing to a professional company provides specialized expertise, equipment and technology such as AI for indexing digital images.  No need to hire and manage staff, need of the physical space or buying expensive equipment.  Adherence to governmental compliance such as The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) M-19-21 and Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI).
