Learn the benefits of outsourcing your document scanning needs.

Document scanning is an important step in your business’s evolution. Scanning the countless paper files and records in your office is a massive undertaking. It’s great that you’ve made the decision to scan your documents and convert them into an easy-to-search solution for your office, but who is going to do the scanning? Document scanning is a great service offered by Micro Records that can save you a huge amount of time and money.

The Cost of Document Scanning

Since we already have the equipment necessary to scan and catalog your documents, we have no start-up costs for document scanning. If you choose to do so yourself, you will need to invest money in document scanning scanners, image capturing software, and training for the employees that are going to be doing the scanning.

The Strain on Human Resources

Human resources are another critical element of document scanning, and Micro Records already has the staffing in place to handle your job. However, do you have a few extra employees lying around who can spend day after day document scanning? To skip the hassle and human resources cost of hiring new employees and training them, choose to partner with an existing document scanning service company.

The Massive Real Estate Needed

Did you know that each preparation, scanning, and indexing station needed for document scanning takes up at least 30 square feet of office space? How much space do you have to spare? If you partner with a document scanning service, you won’t need to worry about sectioning off any extra office space for scanning. Keep in mind that scanning should always save you space, not use up space you don’t have.

The Steady Flow You Need

Finally, when you try to tackle document scanning on your own, you will encounter a great deal of inconsistency with how the project is completed. Hiring a team ensures slow and steady scanning that will be completed on time. Busy week at work? Your document scanning will still be getting done.
