Benefits of Document Scanning

  • Documents are preserved - paper deteriorates while CD's are rated to preserve data for 100 years

  • Paper takes space and space costs money - up to 50,000 images (equivalent of a three 4-drawer filing cabinets) can fit on a single DVD.

  • Cost reductions to general and administrative accounts, as less time is spent on retrieving records.

  • Information is found faster when images are OCR'ed into Word or Acrobat - instant retrieval of documents by word, phrase, or keyword

  • Can transmit to others via email or FAX at the press of a key

  • Portable - can carry necessary documents with you on a laptop 

  • More than one person can view a document at a time

  • Internet Access - the data can be copied to a server where access by the Internet might be required. The included Boolean and Fuzzy logic technologies and the template field searches help to pinpoint hard to find information.

  • Able to recover from disaster by storing data in more than one physical location.
