Our Scanning Process

Our three-step scanning process helps us ensure that things run smoothly, and you get the outcome you desire, on time and within budget. Whether you send us your papers online or come in store, we’ll get the ball rolling swiftly to give you peace of mind. Our process is simple:

  1. Collect – we first collect all of your documents (online or in-person), along with any details or issues you may have. We then put together a plan to ensure your vision becomes the final result. Rest assured that your papers are in great hands, and we will treat them with respect throughout the entire process.
  2. Prepare – this part of the process involves getting your documents ready to be processed through the scanners. This involves sorting, removing staples and removing docs from files. The condition of your papers will determine what is needed to be done to achieve the best results.
  3. Scan & Data Capture – we now scan, arrange and store any type of document with speed and ease thanks to our high-tech gear. Captured images are converted to either PDF, jpeg or TIFF as you need them. These will then be transferred to the media storage device of your choice. The following services can also be provided:
    • 900mm wide, continuous length wide format scanner for drawings and maps.
    • Flat Bed scanner for photo quality scans up to 600 dpi.
    • Auto feed scanning of bulk docs for data storage.
