An article that was posted in HR Magazine last September made a very bold statement in the world of human resources - ‘It’s time HR got smart about smart technology’. While this article was urging HR professionals to utilise smartphone technology, apps specifically, in order to operate in the working world that is increasingly becoming more mobile and flexible, we agree that HR professionals should also be embracing another technology in order to implement change. This technology is document scanning. When using digitisation techniques, HR document management is revolutionised in a way that can give any business a competitive edge.
How does HR files scanning work?
When using our HR document management and scanning service we collect all of your files directly from your office. Our document scanning service is available in London, and we can gather documents from the north, south, east and west areas of the capital. From here, they are stored in our secure facility, then systematically digitised in our dedicated scanning bureau. We use the latest technology and machinery in the scanning industry and are capable of processing traditional documents as well as forms, surveys, photographs, books, records and more. Once digitised, we run them through OCR software to convert them into fully text searchable documents. We then present them to you in your chosen digital format, including PDF, JPEG and TIFF. All of our customers are also given free access to our cloud storage platform, Halogen Cloud. This document management software was designed with HR departments in mind, enabling you to quickly access important files whenever they are needed.
What are the benefits?
When working in HR, whether you are responsible for recruitment, training, internal communications or payroll, your role relies on you having access to lots of information on a daily basis. And often when completing your tasks, you will also generate a lot more paper work that also needs to be filed and considered for later use.
Employee file scanning, invoice scanning, record scanning, feedback form scanning and more can help to create a digital HR document management system that can save time, remove margin for error and reduce cost. What’s more, with huge amounts of data stored in a digital, OCR searchable and indexed format, new insights can be found from the improved analysis that this instant access enables.
In addition, businesses looking to utilise smartphone technology, as suggested by HR Magazine, can do so with a digital document management system. No matter where an employee is based, files can be sent and viewed in an instant.
Tasks can be completed much faster with the documents required available at the click of a mouse boosting productivity, efficiency and eventually, profits. With these benefits, HR document scanning gives your company a competitive edge.
At Pearl Scan we offer our document scanning in London for a wide range of organisations, working closely with many HR departments to help them dramatically improve their processes.
