Professionals in a growing range of fields are discovering the utility and convenience of large format scanning. With the requisite wide format scanner, one can quickly digitize 18+-inch documents for incorporation into (and future access through) an ECM system. Though you might pick up on some thematic overlap—‘It’s convenient! It’s easy!—here are some more specific reasons why your business should consider trying out this incredible tech.
1. Discovering the Ideal Scanner for Your Business Needs
By now, there are enough wide format scanners that you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect model for your company. Whether you have space constraints, prioritize speed above all, need realer-than-life clarity, or have never before met a printer you got along with… you’ll be able to find the right device to match your unique ambitions, skillset, and practical considerations.
2. Intuitively Indexing Large Format Documents
With a wide format scanner, you can customize the manner in which documents are indexed, eliminating clutter and confusion. Once integrated into your document management system, access is easy cross-device.
3. Saving Time and Saving Money
It takes significantly longer to reach an off-site storage facility, wait for a third party to retrieve a 50-inch drawing, then lug it back home or to the office (and later, of course, back to the storage facility) than the amount of time needed to touch a button that immediately produces a reproduction rendered perfectly via large format scanning. Not having to the pay storage fees for hefty collections of hefty documents is an added bonus, so to speak.
4. Getting All of Your Legacy Documents in One “Place”—Often With More Detail and Clarity Than the Originals
Whether you want to scan a four-hundred-year-old map or a corporate manifesto created on (and long since abandoned in) Windows ’97, your wide format scanner is equal to the task and then some. -Say it’s a four-hundred-year-old map printed on vellum. Large format scanning won’t break a sweat, and piggybacked with the right digital enhancement software, will yield a digital rendering that could conceivably reveal details previously unnoticed or indistinguishable on the original. In this manner, you can work through legacy docs and vastly expand your ECM library at your own pace, then never be without it.
