Document Management Solutions for Insurance
BMI has a long history of providing document scanning (back-file and day-forward), microfilm conversion and document management solutions for title insurance, life insurance and health insurance companies. Our customized solutions automate the digital conversion, storage, retrieval and management of large libraries of historic property or claims-related records.
Your insurance records are often permanent records and completing your record conversion project right the first time is critical. We have over 50 years of experience in these conversion projects along with many insurance company references. Our secure facilities and experience handling poor quality paper and microfilm records are reasons insurance companies turn to us for their record conversion projects.
Document Scanning and Microfilm Conversion Solutions
- Preserving the original context of historic data is extremely valuable during the digital conversion process because original context enables more accurate searches. A key to reducing losses in title claims is accurate determination of all recorded exposure. There are often unique methods of record keeping in the old records, depending on the organization. Frequently, title companies have inherited several plants (datasets), each created in its own fashion and none of which matches the current posting methodology. Our experience with historic title plant data assets (e.g. lot books, geographic books, maps, posting procedures) and life insurance records (e.g. policies, claims) enables us to digitally scan your assets from paper and microfilm while keeping the history and knowledge base of the old records intact but making them accessible within your current searching environment.
- We specialize in material that has illegible images, uniquely presented, whether from microfilm or paper. A life insurance policy that has illegible sections or a lot book page whose posting cannot be read is not very valuable, no matter how quickly the digital records are displayed on a screen. We have developed methods using grayscale and adjustable grayscale technologies that add a unique photographic quality to all PDF and TIFF records to enhance legibility. Added to this is a process that traps the images in context unlike any other available system, thus preserving the intent of the original authors.
