How much does a scanning service cost?


It usually costs around 7-12 cents per page to scan. However, the price will depend on the type of document, size of your project, the complexity, any additional features such as OCR, and whether you want to implement any of our digital or off-site storage options. When you contact us with the details of your project, our service providers will be able to give you a more accurate price quote.

How secure are your scanning services?


All of our service providers prioritize confidentiality and integrity. They are all compliant with state and federal privacy laws, such as HIPAA, HITECH, FACTA, and more. They also have physical security, restricted access, and encryption, and can securely destroy your documents after scanning if needed. Most have an industrial-grade shredder at their scanning facilities or partner with a shredding service.

What kinds of documents can I scan?


Our service providers are equipped to handle any type of document, including paper documents, photographs, slides, medical records, legal documents, financial records, blueprints, architectural drawings, and more. They can handle any size, shape, and format you have.

Do I need to prepare my documents before my service?


Generally, you should organize your documents in the way you want to index your files digitally and keep them free from any damage or debris. You should also remove any staples, paperclips, rubber bands, and other bindings. While this is not required, it helps your service run more smoothly and efficiently.

What is the typical turnaround time for a scanning service?


Your project’s timing will vary based on the complexity, quantity, and any specific requests (indexing, redacting, etc.). Once you connect with your service provider, they will give you a more in-depth timeline.

Will I be able to edit my scanned documents?


You can edit your scanned files if you request OCR scanning. Your documents will be converted to machine-encoded text that can be edited through a PDF.

How does indexing work?


Indexing is when you associate documents with different “search terms.” This allows you to easily search for files using the keywords of your choice. Some examples you can index by are case number, dates, patients’ names, invoice number, order numbers, addresses, and more.

Can you scan double-sided document?


Yes – our service providers’ scanners are made to scan both sides of your documents at the same time. 

What is the difference between imaging and digitizing?


Document imaging only takes an “image” of your documents where it can’t be edited or manipulated. Digitizing typically incorporates OCR technology, allowing you to edit your digital documents, drawings, and more.

What industries can benefit from scanning services?
