Storing, transporting, and using oversized, large, and wide format documents can become tedious and time-consuming. Converting these paper documents to a digital file format ensures that projects get done faster, more efficiently and that everyone is working from the same plan documents.
Scanning your large format drawings, blueprints, maps, and photographs can save countless hours of finding the information you’re looking for. It will also help you preserve them for future use without the fear that they will be destroyed or lost.
What Is Large Format Document Scanning?
The large format scanning process converts oversize paper documents to digital files using large format scanners.
Typical large format documents could include the following:
- Architectural drawings
- Engineering drawings
Digital versions of these documents provide high-quality images of the originals and are less cumbersome to store, share, and access than their paper counterparts.
Who Needs Large Format Scanning Services?
Planning and building departments in local governments, architecture firms of all sizes, and even the new homeowner looking for an easy way to collaborate with other users will all find substantial benefits in scanning their large and wide format documents.
What Are The Benefits Of Large Format Scanning?
In addition to preventing wear and tear on paper documents, large format scanning can provide multiple benefits for your organization.
1. Save Time When Sharing & Collaborating
Sharing digital files is comparatively simple compared to using paper. First and foremost, digital documents are easier to find, send, and store. All documents can be found in a central database and sent to collaborators with a few clicks of your mouse.
2. Upgrade Your Document Control Capabilities
Large and oversized documents are difficult to manage, even with the best organization skills. Storing files in a central digital location, such as on a secure, password-protected server or cloud platform, can be more convenient and secure than storing paper files in your office.
3. Search & Retrieve Documents More Easily
Using keyword searches, you can easily find relevant digital files instead of sifting through paper documents. Digital files that have been properly indexed and labeled can also be found by searching for clients, projects, or any other category your company uses to sort documents.
