1. Scanning Services Will Save Costs
In the long and short term, it’s true that using document scanning services will save you money. There are a number of ways in which they can do this such as removing the need for using costly document storage companies, as well as changing the way your staff work for the better which in turns leads to more work being done in less time thanks to the new, easy to use digital environment.
2. Low Cost In Going Digital
One of the biggest misconceptions about going digital and getting your files scanned is that it will cost a lot of money. In a lot of cases updating technology means that the companies that provide such services will charge a lot because it’s new and shiny. Not so in the case of scanning. Our company for example charges as little as a penny per sheet and sometimes less for even larger quantities.
3. Gives Back Much Needed Space
Whether you have one filing cabinet or entire floors dedicated purely to storing and filing documents, you can save a lot of space. Once the scanning and digitisation is completed the files can be securely shredded and you can reap the benefits of the new found space. If you do indeed only have one filing cabinet and it might seem like overkill to say that you’ll save space, you might be surprised. A quick office shift around and you’ll find that that small area can make a huge difference.
4. Boosting Efficiency
A lot of companies use scanning services to help them save space and costs but quite a lot also come back to us and say that efficiency is boosted significantly too. It’s no surprise that this would happen. Because having your documents scanned provides you with a digital platform that is very easy to use and documents that are now even easier to access and far more flexible, more work can be done and working is easier for staff to complete. This often results in better morale in the office as well. adhd wisconsin
5. Better Organisation
It’s true what they say; no paper means no mess. Because all documents are available freely on your own systems, you know exactly where they are and, considering the folder location is locked, files can’t be removed or deleted by mistake. Comparing to a paper based system, the advantage there is enough, but if you have had your documents OCR’d, making them text searchable, you can find all documents related to a particular person, number, address or anything else of relevance.
