Should I buy a scanner or outsource my scanning?

Scanning in-house requires investment in software to save your scanned images to a viewable format. You will spend time and money for training your employee(s) on the software and hardware usage. Many companies find outsourcing their scanning to be more efficient. You save on the time and expense for setting up in-house scanning. Your work is done by professionals with expertise in document scanning and conversion. Upon the documents arriving at our office they will be secured and then put through our document litigation process to prepare them for scanning. This involves removing all binding artifacts such as staples, paperclips, rubber bands, and etc. As well as correcting any folds or tears that may inhibit the document from being scanned properly. During this phase the documents will also be checked for small attachments like taped on scratch notes and sticky pads. These will be either scanned separately or attached to the paper securely before scanning. If an image is deemed “un-scanable” by our high speed scanners it will be removed from the batch and set aside for flatbed scanning or post-litigation. This pre-litigation serves as the first step in our quality control system Contact us for a more detailed discussion of the benefits of outsourcing.
