Drowning in Paper?

Backscanning is the solution

  • A recent Price Waterhouse study required a paralegal to find 20 documents out of 20,000. After 67 hours of searching, the paralegal found 15 of the requested 20 documents. Given the same task, a document imaging system found all 20 documents in less than 3 seconds.

  • Scan4U BackScanning can assist

Are you battling to cope with the increasingly high costs associated with inefficient management of paper documents? A paper dependent office usually means wasted space, limited accessibility, and poor productivity. Filing cabinets take up valuable space and are often unorganized. Accessibility becomes an issue when multiple users want access to the same document. Furthermore, employees waste valuable company time searching for business critical information.

Scan4U Scanning Services can assist by converting these paper documents into searchable digital images through the utilisation of high volume, high quality scanners, superior software and experienced Data capturers, who “index” the documents for later search and retrieval.

Our goal is to provide you with the ability to instantly access business critical information through scanned images of your paper documents. Rather than spending time LOOKING for information, you can spend your time USING that information.

Imagine never leaving your desk again to find a document. You would simply retrieve the document image on your computer and then review, print, fax, or e-mail the document as needed. Consider a work environment without filing cabinets or document storage management headaches!

However, document retrieval isn’t the only important aspect to our scanning services…

Businesses today should have contingency plans in place to cover the catastrophic loss that could happen as a result of flooding, fire, terrorism or other disaster. Most companies have regular tape backups of their electronic data but what about backups of all your paperwork? A recent report indicated that companies which suffered a major loss of information due to fire typically went out of business within 12 months. Scan4U’s document scanning and archival enables you to have multiple copies of your documents on and off-site and these can be re-instated within minutes of any disaster so that staff can carry on with their work.
