Removal of Staples and Paperclips
Prior to scanning, we go through the files and remove any staples, paperclips, tags etc. This ensures a smooth and accurate scanning process takes place and makes for better quality scans.
We only use the latest scanners equipped with ultra-sonic, double-feed and automated colour detection and image processing tools. We scan to your preferred file format such as PDF, PDF Searchable, TIFF, JPEG etc. We scan paper as small as a till receipt up to A3 as well as large format drawings and plans in full colour, greyscale or black and white.
We also offer OCR Processing to convert your documents to fully text-searchable documents. This can be very beneficial when it comes to searching particular documents as your files will be completely searchable by their text and data.
File Indexing and Categorisation
Once scanned we can then index each document by relevant data, for example, Title, Name, Address, Reference number, date etc.
ISO Quality Checks
All our services are fully accredited to ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance standards and in addition to this, we have developed our internal quality-control procedures to ensure that the files meet required industry standards.
The scanned data is normally supplied on CD, DVD or USB. When supplying confidential data, we normally encrypt the entire collection using 128-Bit encryption.
Once you have approved the disks your papers can either be returned to you, securely disposed of via environmentally friendly document shredding or we can store them for a further required period.
