Document Scanning Services
Save time, money, and space by turning your physical documents into digital ones.
Benefits of Document Scanning and Digital Storage
Considering the move to electronic documents does more than just free up office space – it takes the burden of managing thousands of records off your staff. It saves you and your employees countless hours of time handling documents each day and empowers better communication, collaboration, and flow of information through your entire organization. The benefits of moving to digital documents include:
Central Point of Access
One centralized point for accessing your documents from anywhere, even when workers are remote.
Find Documents Faster
When documents are scanned, they can be OCR’d so that they are full-text searchable in an archive or storage system like Content Central DMS.
Free Up Space
Physcial space in an office can be costly. Moving to digital documents means you gain valueable office real estate back.
Automated workfows can route digital documents from one place to another, facilitating communication and collaboration across departments.
Securing digital documents is less expensive and easier than doing the same for physical ones – plus it’s likely easier to meet compliance requirements too!
The Cost of Paper-Based Processes
Despite the hassle they create for employees and the vulnerability physical documents present, many businesses today still use physical copies of documents for day-to-day operations. In a paper-based office, the average employee spends up to 15% of their time reading information and 50% of their time just looking for the info they need. Each document costs $20 to file and store while it costs an additional $120 to find and/or replace misfiled documents. Plus, when documents are in a physical format, it’s hard to share them with others – especially if your workforce has gone remote.
