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.
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.
