How the Document Scanning Process Works


STEP ONE- We will analyse your needs and prepare proof-of concept-samples to explore the options we can provide for you.


STEP TWO- Your documents will then be collected by our Fast and Secure Nationwide Collection Service. We can also provide A3 sized boxes for your documents if needed.


STEP THREE- At our secure scanning premises the fasteners such as paperclips and staples will be removed while your documents are kept in the correct order.


STEP FOUR- The documents are then ready to be scanned using our superfast scanners fully equipped with ultrasonic double-feed, automated colour detection and image processing applications. They can be scanned to PDF or any other format you prefer, including searchable PDF, TIFF and JPEG.


STEP FIVE- Scanned document can then be indexed using relevant data such as title, name, address, reference number or date. Indexing of this type involves; image indexing and index verification, scanning text with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and database creation.


STEP SIX- We provide a one stop service for all of your document scanning needs so we also offer OCR processing to convert your documents to fully text-searchable documents.


STEP SEVEN- Quality checks are then undertaken. We have procedures in place within quality control to ensure the entire process or scanning and digitisation meets industry standard.


STEP EIGHT- Once scanned, indexed and checked, your digital documents can then be delivered to you on one of a range of mediums including CD, DVD, USB, secure FTP and MS SharePoint. If your department or company does not have any document management system we can supply the data in our free document management software, Halogen, or host it for you on our secure Pearl Cloud portal.


STEP NINE- If you are happy with your digital documents, we then offer three solutions for your paper documents. We can return them to you, securely dispose of them via environmentally friendly document shredding processes or we can store them securely at our premises for a further required period.
