Document scanning Imaging is the process of converting text, paper documents or other files to digital images. This "analog" to "digital" conversion process is required for computer users to be able to view electronic files. Documents are scanned and converted into digital images that can be easily accessed anytime from anywhere. These images are indexed and correlated with retrieval information and stored in a Document Management System. By scanning and converting paper documents into digital images, records are always safe, secure and close at hand. An important aspect of document conversion is its ability to protect and maintain the original integrity of the data. Every digital document gains a level of security never before offered in the form of physical documents. Digital means your data is secure and at all times protected from wear, disaster, and incompetence.
