The UK aerospace industry is the second-largest national aerospace industry in the world. With a global market share of 17%, it employs hundreds of thousands of people and boasts around 3000 companies. As a forward-thinking industry, the sector is always looking at ways to progress using new technology. And Pearl Scan, one of the UK’s premier scanning companies, has highlighted the incredible benefits digitalisation through document scanning can help improve the industry further and cement it as a force to be reckoned with.
The aerospace sector must meet and adhere to a range of legal requirements. And in order to do this, documents, records, maintenance files, technical data, and quality checks must all be kept safe, secure and easily accessible. Yet this is often easier said than done with thousands of individual documents and files.
“With a large volume of industry paperwork, keeping it all on paper files is no longer practical,” said Naveed Ashraf, Managing Director at Pearl Scan Group. “The aerospace industry is one of the most advanced engineering sectors in the world and should be leading the way in technological advancements. And one of the best ways to do this is by implementing electronic document management.”
Aerospace companies are required to have lots of information to hand for reference in order to meet requirements for audits. Storing documents electronically allows them to be located at the click of a button, shared easily across departments and third party companies and keeps them safe from harm’s way.
Pearl Scan offers a complete scanning solution for all industry documentation. Files such as aircraft paperwork, maintenance and technical records, orders for parts and supplier invoices, quality checks, company audits, parts catalogues, HR and payroll files, project files, legal documents and flight manifests are all easily converted in order to be placed in easy to navigate and locate files. Specialist aviation engineering documents, such as blueprints and technical drawings, CAD drafting, microfiche, microfilm, aperture cards, aerial photography and historical and heritage records can also be digitised in order to create more streamlined filing systems that can be easily backed up and stored.
