Companies and organisations often think they have to pick a small amount of important documents to be scanned so as not to break the budget. What they don't realise however, is that larger scale scanning often doesn't cost as much as you might think and they also bring bigger benefits!
Bulk scanning is exactly that; the process of scanning a large bulk of documents. Companies who still store documents in paper form will usually have filing cabinets, folders and boxes full to bursting with them. Once they have made the decision to go digital with their document management system, it makes a lot of sense to scan all of those documents rather than just some.
Almost any document previously stored in hard copy can be scanned in bulk. From till receipts and invoices to archives and heritage collections.
Standard document scanning alone can bring cost savings in the form of reduced paper and printing use as well as lower storage costs but if the scanning is completed on all of the documents you hold, these savings can potentially be massive. Imagine being able to abolish all of your storage costs or reduce the amount paper you use to almost zero (or even none at all if you want to try out a paperless office). Profits will be through the roof and who can say no to that?
Once your documents have been scanned, they should be OCR processed and converted to the format you need. When you outsource your scanning project to a document scanning company like Pearl Scan, your documents can be managed with bulk document management software, Halogen. Since they have been fully indexed, you will only need to make a simple text search in the software to retrieve the documents and information you need.
