Your agency manages and maintains a mountain of paper, microfilm, plans, maps and other hard copies. You need to comply with Executive Orders 13571 and 13576, but you know your workers don't have the time or expertise to digitize everything by the mandated 2019 deadline.

That's why we offer information digitization as a service in two ways:

  • Back file conversion: Your stored records are scanned, indexed and loaded automatically into a document management system, business process, or delivered to you via physical or electronic media.

  • Day-forward scanning services: Each day, your incoming files are indexed and entered into an electronic document management system.
 
 

Choose onsite or offsite services 

 

Reach your goals for transparency, participation and collaboration. 

 

Converting your permanent records and emails into electronic format is a big undertaking. But our document management experts are experienced with government workflows, and know what to do and how to do it fast and efficiently.

 

  • Purchase only the services you need, with the ability to rapidly scale up during peak periods.

  • Protect documents with chain of custody security systems.

  • Share information anywhere, anytime via the cloud or mobile devices to keep up with the changing preferences of your workforce and consumers.

Whether your hardcopy data grows at 50% or 150%, it's probably getting harder for your workers to keep up and share information in a timely manner. Our Digital Imaging Services team improves agency operations in several ways:


  • Reduce the time your employees spend searching for information, or recreating information that already exists.

  • Help meet your environmental sustainability goals by reducing paper and energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • Use audit trails to streamline your responses to compliance requests.

  • Reduce real estate/office space requirements by cutting back on the amount of paper you have to store.
