Document Shredding

Off-site Document Storage Services

While document scanning and digitizing files is a common practice, not everyone realizes the advantages of this technology. In fact, many people might be surprised to learn that document scanning can help improve their organization since it can avoid the need to print and reprint old documents, thereby saving on printing expenses.

In addition, with the advent of digitization, not only does document scanning allow for more freedom in storing files and documents, but also makes it easier to access information while saving on precious office space.

This is a great advantage but also a convenience for present and future users of these files. As a result, workplace productivity is improved while saving on printing costs, time, space, and effort. On top of that, scanning documents makes it easier for different teams to collaborate on documents for creating successful outcomes.

Invest in Document Scanning Company That Meets Your Needs

We provide premium document scanning and storage services at affordable prices. We also offer our customers a wide range of document processing and storage options, including:

Document Restoration: Our restoration services extend beyond just cleaning up old documents. We can restore information from damaged or faded documents so you can get the most out of your information.

Scanning: Scans are used to help maintain the quality of your documents. A scan preserves the integrity of an original document by capturing its entire layout on a hard drive for future use.

Conversion: Conversion includes converting paper to digital image files for safekeeping on the computer, external hard drives, USB flash drives, and CD / DVD media.

Storage: The storage part of our service involves storing these scanned images on our servers so that they can be accessed from any location via a secure HIPAA, DOD, and NIST security standard connection. This helps secure the original data from being lost or damaged in case of fire disasters or other life events that affect us naturally.

How We Create Editable Documents

There are certain times during document scanning when it would be helpful to be able to edit files. For example, you might have a scanned file where the formatting of the text is just wrong or blurry. Most of us have had this experience before, whether it’s an old mortgage document that wasn’t formatted correctly, or just a scanned document with some sort of formatting that makes it hard to read or edit.

That’s where optical character recognition (OCR) comes in to make old documents editable again.

Our OCR software works by reading scanned images and converting them into editable files that can be opened in Microsoft Word or other popular word processors, using the text in the original document as a starting point for creating new text in your word processor of choice.
