How Document Scanning in Liverpool Works?


Before any document scanning project starts all documents will be prepared, this is the time when we will de-staple, unfold, and repair the documents prior to scanning. Any drawings will be marked in the original file and placed with the large format scanning team all other documents will be scanned by our small format team, every image created will utilise auto colour where necessary to make sure any boundaries, red areas or photographs are correctly captured. Any large format drawings or over sized documents will be merged at the end of the small format, or returned to their original place in your new electronic file.

Indexing and OCR Process (Optical Character Recognition)

All electronic records created are indexed by one or more pre-agreed key field indicators, such as invoice number, surname, given name or file information. The newly created PDF files will then be OCRED, this then allows you to search for any text – alpha or numeric within that document/file or group of documents/files for additional search functionality.

Quality Checks

In accordance with our ISO 9001:2015 quality accreditation our teams carry out regular and audited quality checks during the entire processing procedure. Prior to despatch we complete additional checks on each job for quality, clarity and integrity.

Return of Electronic Images

The electronic images are transferred to encrypted and password protected USB or Hard Drives which will then be returned by hand to you on a prearranged date and time.

Destruction of Original Paper Records

Original documents will be stored for a pre-agreed time after the electronic files have been returned, we would then ask you for permission to destroy the originals, no records will ever be destroyed without your prior written permission. Once we have your permission the file will be cross shredded to European standards prior to recycling.
