How Government Document Scanning Works

1. Prepare your documents to be scanned by placing documents and files into labeled boxes to be transported for scanning.

2. Contact Record Nations at (866) 385-3706 or fill out the form to receive free quotes from providers in your area. Choose the provider that best fits your needs and budget.

3. The scanner takes the records and transports them securely to a facility to begin the conversion process. However, if you need to conduct the process on-site, they instead take their scanners to your location.

4. Experts then scan and convert your documents to a digital format, ensuring accuracy every step of the way.

5. Records are converted into desired formats and stored on a document management system of your choosing.

6. Physical files are either returned to the office or are sent to an offsite storage unit until the retention period expires.

Benefits of Document Scanning and Management for Government

Enhanced Security

Document scanning and management systems provide robust security features, including encryption and access controls, to protect sensitive government information from unauthorized access and breaches.

Improved Efficiency

Digitizing documents streamlines access and retrieval, reducing the time spent on manual searches and allowing government employees to focus on more critical tasks, leading to increased productivity.

Cost Savings

Reducing physical storage needs and minimizing paper usage can lead to significant cost savings on storage space, printing, and administrative expenses.

Better Compliance and Record-Keeping

Document management systems help ensure compliance with regulatory requirements by maintaining organized, accurate, and easily retrievable records, facilitating audits and inspections.

6. Protective Measures: Consider using archival-quality folders, sleeves, or envelopes to protect individual documents within the boxes. This can help prevent damage from handling, moisture, or environmental factors.
