Document Scanning & Digital Conversion Solutions

Turn Your Paper Into Text-Searchable Digital Files

For businesses and government agencies with large paper archives, our document conversion services can give you instant-access digital files that can be retrieved with just a few clicks. We’ll handle every aspect of the document scanning project from pick-up and delivery to preparation, scanning, data extraction, and media delivery or document hosting.

Record conversion is important, but the process to scan and capture the images and data from those records and convert them into easy-to-retrieve digital files is where we really provide value. We’ve been converting documents for over 60 years and have the people, technology, and infrastructure ready to make your project a success.
