Document Scanning

High-volume document scanning services

We recognize that your documents are a vital aspect of your business. We also realize that scanning and managing extensive document collections can be overwhelming, whether paper or electronic. Our scanning and conversion services grant you a truly customized solution for your company.

We offer document scanning services for all types of documents:

How it works:

1. Preparation: Often overlooked, document preparation is a crucial part of MSI’s document scanning services. This step will be completed as a separate process before scanning your documents and includes the removal of acco fasteners, staples, binder clips, tape, re-positionable notes (such as “post-it” notes), and tape. In addition, folded documents will be straightened, and torn corners will be taped.


2. Document Scanning: The document scanning process will be completed using Kodak and Canon high-volume scanners which have excellent output quality, reliability and ensure there is no damage to the documents.

All documents can be scanned in either a TIFF or PDF format. Color images can be scanned in color and duplex scanning may be necessary to capture information on the back of documents.

Our document scanning services also include systems that support blank page detection and removal. Document cleanup measures, such as de-skewing, de-speckling, and other common production scanning techniques, are also provided document scanning services.

3. Index & Data Entry: As part of our document scanning services, MSI utilizes manual data entry procedures and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technologies to create index records for your company. Accurate indexing of your documents ensures efficient future retrieval of your files.

Depending on your document scanning service needs, we can utilize both on-shore and off-shore data capture solutions as well as the latest in full text and zonal OCR  and ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) software.

Our machines and software also utilize OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) capabilities which provide our customers with high-level metadata and index values that allow for easy text searches and can be used to search by attributes or by records in a database.

State-of-the-art scanning facilities

Most of our clients choose to send their documents offsite to our Colorado or California facility, where an advanced 24/7 security system keeps records secure during the conversion process. 

Our operations centers utilize state-of-the-art technology and equipment to meet all of your document conversion needs.

Onsite scanning

Some clients are faced with unique situations wherein their set of documents can not leave their current location. For this, MSI offers onsite scanning services. Our team will arrive with all the necessary equipment and be ready to scan within minutes!

FAQ

Q: Do I drop off the records or do you pick them up?

A: Records can be dropped off or picked up depending on your needs.

Q: How do you name/organize my records?

A: We typically start with file-folder level naming and then get more complex from there if it is required.  i.e. Bracket/section-level, document-level, etc.

Q: Can I ship my records to you?

A: Yes of course!  Please just first reach out to confirm which location, how to properly prepare, and that our team knows they're incoming so they can prepare to receive them in our tracking systems.

Q: What do you do with my paper documents after you convert them?

A: All documents are either returned to the client or securely shredded by our 3rd party vendor who maintains the appropriate certifications of shredding for us. All boxes to be shredded are tracked in our system, palletized and shrink wrapped before the vendor backs up to our dock to pickup in enclosed trailer for secure transfer to their shredding facility.

Q: Do I have to pull out all the staples?

A: No, you do not need to remove staples before scanning. As part of our bulk scanning and scan on demand services, we can do that for you and if you would like your files returned to you we will replace all the staples afterwards too.

Q: What happens if I need some of my documents back?

A: Access is always available throughout the processing project. We’ll retrieve and re-file anything you need during the conversion.

Q: Do you take on small document scanning jobs?

A: Yes we do, but we specialize in high speed and high volume, so minimum fees may apply. Contact us for a customized quote.

Q: How much does document scanning cost?

A: The price of your projects will vary according to exactly what you are looking for. It’s important to determine how much you have to scan, and any special features or service options you need. Contact us for a customized quote.
