Scanwerks provides high-volume document scanning services, back-file or day forward, by employing a batch scanning strategy utilizing state of the art software & high speed scanners. Our scalable infrastructure allows us to ramp up for high-volume capture projects within a minimal amount of time. Our systematic approach and procedures enable us to execute projects very efficiently.
Capture data while Scanning
Our technology enables us to capture data at different points in our production process, including the paper scanning phase. An example of this is reading barcodes that can contain valuable information that relates to a document, i.e. file number or document description. These barcodes are interpreted by the software and electronically assigned to that document while the data values are stored for later use in the production cycle (the indexing phase). The flexibility of our production software allows the stored data values to be assigned to any level of document organization; i.e. box, folder, document or page.
Image Enhancement and Scan-QC
Image Enhancement and Scan-QC are standard procedures in ALL Scanwerks imaging processes. Image Enhancement is an automated process whereby all images are digitally cleansed of background noise, skews, and borders. Scan-QC is a quality control process where a technician visually compares each and every page to its respective image, ensuring 100% capture of all client documents. If the quality of an image does not meet our standards the page is rescanned to provide the client with the Best-Image-Possible (BIP). These two processes, when used in tandem, provide a two tiered image quality safety net that ensures the capture of every page and the highest image quality.
Key characteristics of our Scanning and Importing Processes
Scanwerks has extensive experience in deploying on-site scanning configuration to accommodate custodial guidelines when documents cannot leave the client site. We will go on-site and provide any number of scanning and post-scanning services. In most cases, once the images have been captured and verified, they are sent to our central production facility in Houston for further processing. If clients cannot allow the electronic images to leave the site, we will deploy a complete on-site setup that can accommodate all post-scanning production needs.
Large Format Scanning
Scanwerks provides large format scanning services to digitize engineering drawings, blueprints, well logs, EKG print-outs, and maps.
