Benefits of Paper Scanning Services

Clear Clutter & Save Money With Digital Scanning Services

The whole reason you want to scan your documents in the first place is to efficiently clean up the clutter on your desk or in your office. Make files readily available and indexable while creating more space for growth. Creating electronic files from paper documents offers many business advantages, including:

  • Clears clutter and lifts morale. An organized and uncrowded desk/office provides a psychological lift. It makes your business appear more modern, organized, and professional to your staff, potential new hires, and your clients/customers or patients.
  • Makes files easily shareable and readily indexable for your search queries, analysis, and group projects.
  • Frees up physical office space for growth and/or reduces your need for office square footage to save money.
  • Enhances data security, keeping sensitive information from accidental or intentional loss, destruction, or unauthorized viewing. Digital files are easier to secure than paper files.
  • Reduces operating costs associated with filing, organizing, securing, and pulling data from paper documents.
  • Increases staff efficiency and productivity. Highly trained staff can be focused on higher-level tasks, and/or headcount may be reduced due to simpler filing and file management.
  • Simplifies your business disaster recovery plan. You’ll be able to restore from a secure digital repository and arrange regular, automatic backups.

Why Digitize Your Documents?

SIGNIFICANT COST REDUCTIONS — Most organizations who start scanning do so to realize significant cost reductions, particularly those associated with:

  • Managing and storing medical records
  • Managing and storing financial records
  • Photocopying
  • Faxing
  • Physical storage space
  • Shipping
  • Expenses
  • Employees
  • Overtime
  • Courier services
  • Administrative costs (such as filing and retrieving)
  • Legal document production

LEGAL COMPLIANCE – Organizations of all sizes now must comply with laws, requests, and audits from HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and FOIA. Many of these regulations provided an initial grace period for smaller businesses, but the time to comply is now at hand. This has created a need to implement document retention policies and strategies and to seek technology that can help manage all business information more efficiently.

DISASTER RECOVERY – We are living in a time when there is an unprecedented number of natural disasters, including tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes. When taken in concert with man-made disasters such as fire or terrorism, businesses of all sizes are highly vulnerable. Unless the affected organization has a fully implemented disaster recovery plan, it is likely its operations will be shut down. Inc. reported that 75% of small and medium-sized businesses have no disaster recovery plan and that 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster.

Your business’s future depends on the choices that you make today. Give Imagex a call at (703) 883-2500 or reach out to us online to schedule your document scanning service in the DMV region.
