Scanning 101

Document scanning is the task of using scanners to convert paper documents into digital images. Document scanning is a great way to save money, increase your business’s productivity, improve information access, and cut down on carbon emissions.

Why Should You Scan

There are innumerable benefits to document scanning for your small or large business. First, and most importantly, you will definitely cut down on costs. Storing and managing physical paper copies of documents is expensive because it requires filing cabinets. Not only do filing cabinets cost tons of money, but they also take up so much space.  

In addition to this, you can also factor in the time it takes to organize and find all your documents. With document scanning, you can store and retrieve your documents easily online to reduce storage costs and increase efficiency.

Another great benefit of document scanning is that it increases the ease at which documents can be shared. Your information can be shared digitally so it can be accessed by multiple employees at any time. This enhances employee collaboration and increases efficiency as well.

Finally, document scanning benefits not just you and your business, but the environment as well. This is a great bonus of document scanning; use less paper and toxic printer ink to reduce your carbon footprint!

Outsource or DIY?

There are two variations of document scanning: you can either invest in a scanner and do it yourself or send your documents to a company to do it for you. In the end, it is much cheaper and more efficient to outsource your document scanning projects.
