There are many reasons why a business may choose to scan and convert paper documents into digital files. If your business has compliance requirements or regulations for data retention, paper files can be cumbersome and much more expensive to store than their digital counterparts.

After scanning, your documents are carefully indexed and organized by any identifier(s) on the documents of your choosing, allowing you to locate any file almost instantaneously by a simple text search, greatly improving efficiency.

The cost of storing paper files tends to be far greater than the cost of digital storage. For that reason, our document scanning service tends to pay for itself. Plus, if you require even infrequent access to your data, the efficiency of searching digital files vs. rummaging through a filing cabinet is a huge time/cost savings.

A digital mailroom is a hybrid mail and scanning service where incoming mail is scanned, converted into digital files, and delivered as an electronic communication. A Digital mailroom is a modern solution that deals with the issues many organizations face when dealing with the processing and distribution of inbound mail.

Organizations generally consider automated mail pipelines to solve issues related to:

  • Remote employees
  • Multiple business locations
  • Mailroom real estate and associated costs
  • Staffing and workforce costs
  • Slow mail processing times
  • Frustration with outdated processes

After each piece of mail has been scanned, your digital files are manually reviewed by our team to ensure they meet our high image quality standards. Any documents that do not meet these criteria are rescanned.

After the imaging process has been completed, we identify each piece of mail and organize by date received or other key information. Any important items or critical mail will be forwarded to your place of business.
