Document Conversion

The benefits of document conversion for businesses, municipalities and organizations is demonstrable. Scanning, digitization and electronic organization of information now provides instant access to valuable information. Every day hundreds of thousands of pages of inventory records, patient files, payroll information, and court records are being digitized. Once digitized there is no longer a need to waste time and energy searching through paper files taking up costly office or warehouse space. Plus, electronic documents can be readily shared with staff members and posted online, facilitating work flow while minimizing errors and redundancies.


Why Choose Document Conversion?



Digitized documents can be made easily accessible to everyone in your organization and/or available to the public online, whether it be across your internal LAN or from a cloud-based system.


Document Security

Access to digital documents can be limited by network permissions – granting one or more individuals or groups access. Documents saved in secured environments can only be accessed by authorized users.

Paper documents can be easily misplaced, lost or damaged. Digital images offer a level of security not available with paper document.



Unlike paper documents which can deteriorate, get damaged, misplaced or lost, digitized documents are always accessible. Electronic images can be arranged, sorted and accessed by users quickly and efficiently. The risk of damage due to environmental factors is virtually eliminated. The ability to archive as backup gives you added piece-of-mind.

Market Research

OSC’s proprietary data capture system revolutionized the way the market research industry processes questionnaires and surveys. But the real key to OSC’s success is our ability to anticipate our clients’ needs by adapting our software and personalizing our services to meet their specific needs.

OSC’s patented data capture technology, written and supported by OSC software specialists, is the fastest, most accurate system available for extracting valuable information from paper surveys. In fact, OSC’s Fast Accurate Capture Technology System (FACTS) is the only data capture system that automatically processes all forms, even damaged or torn surveys, with no modification needed to your form design. And FACTS can distinguish cross-outs, erasures and stray marks from ‘real marks’ with very high accuracy.

● Choice - Service Bureau, licensing or on-site service

Opinions and information from members, customers, and employees are critical to our company’s continuing viability. Whether you entrust your paper surveys to our experts at OSC, license our technology or have our team process at your location, OSC provides all the support and expertise you need to get the job done right.

● Quality Control and Security

All client surveys are handled with care. The security and preservation of all documents we receive is top priority. From the moment your documents arrive at our facility to the moment your project is complete, they are controlled by OSC’s proven security systems. Our reputation for quality control throughout the data capture process is unblemished.

Features of the FACTS system

  • Patented Image Mark Recognition and analysis ensures that erasures, cross-outs, straight lines and other marking patterns are handled accurately.
  • Optical/Intelligent Character Recognition (OCR/ICR) – Pre-printed or handwritten entries can be automatically digitized eliminating hours of manual keying.
  • Workflow – The Workflow Management System allows you to manage, prioritize and monitor the distribution and flow of work within the FACTS system.
  • Embedded programming language – Provides a means to extend the functionality of the FACTS system by allowing users to write custom code that can be executed at specific points in the capture process.
  • System Statistics and Reporting – All activity within the system is tracked and can be reported by job, by day, by operator, etc.
  • Data Entry – Allows for the entry of manual data that could not be automatically captured into the FACTS system. Features are designed for maximum performance and accuracy.
  • Data Verification – a standard double check procedure that ensures accuracy of any or all captured data.
  • Verbatim Coding/Keying – Open-ended questions can be keyed exactly as written or can be custom coded based on the client’s parameters.
  • Telescoding – In-depth analysis – captures multiple levels of data, from a single open-ended response, providing a more valuable, in-depth profile of the respondents’ views.
  • Sound files (telephone interviews) processing  – The playing of sound files can be controlled to facilitate transcription and/or coding.
  • Snippet Creation – Print to hard copy or save to file the entire or sections of the survey.

Ballot design. Outgoing mail handling. Missing ballot requests. Daily mail receipts. Online voting. Paper ballot processing. Nothing that we ask of the AAA & OSC is overlooked or can't be handled. Their partnership has so simplified the election process that we can focus on our members rather than many details of the election process.
