Offsite Storage

Most businesses retain copies of paper documents for at least seven years, some as long as the business has been operating. When it comes to accommodating several years of documents on-site, the task is cumbersome and hard to manage.

Besides having to sort through paperwork manually, onsite record storage takes up valuable office space.

Document Indexing & Data Capturing

  • Document indexing helps you organise and store documents for search purposes or later retrieval, by associating certain information with a specific file or scanned document.
  • Indexing is done from scanned digital images. Each image is retrieved and the critical fields are keyed for the image, or for the digital file.
  • Data capture is the process of collecting information from a document and converting it into data that computers can understand. It is one of the most essential phases of digitization, and if done correctly, it will allow employees to store, organize, search, and retrieve documents in record time.
