Digital Scanning And Document Management For Planning & Building Departments
We provide document scanning and data management solutions to help you increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your records management processes. If you’re looking to scan and convert your archive of microfilm, microfiche, and aperture cards or have a room full of plan sets and permits, we can take care of the work for you. We also offer day-forward scanning services if you need someone to scan your new plan sets.
With our large client base of city and county building, planning, and community development departments we’re familiar with all manner of document management systems and can prep your digital files for easy import into your systems. And if you’re having any trouble moving from an old doc management system into another, we can help out with the conversion and migration.
If you’re looking for some more information to help you along your digital conversion decision journey, below are some recommendations:
“How Much Microfilm And Microfiche Do I Have?” gives you a couple of methods of figuring out how much film, fiche, and aperture cards you have in your collection.

“How Does A Microfilm Conversion Project Work?” briefly illustrates the process we use to run a microfilm scanning project. There’s an infographic for an easy-to-read visual.
