Careful handling is required to scan large documents, especially blueprints which are typically older and more fragile and may have degraded over time. Our staff are fully skilled at restoring and repairing documents as needed as part of preparation for the scanning process. Fragile documents can be placed in acetate sleeves for additional protection during scanning.

Our scanning capabilities also allow us to take a reverse mylar and flip the image so that it is read correctly. Light or faded originals can be darkened during the scanning process and dark originals can be lightened.

Our data entry technicians are fully trained for reading engineering drawings and understand how to correctly index the digital files as part of the scanning process.

Indexing the Scanned Documents

For indexing documents, our scanning solutions include barcoded databases to increase the speed and accuracy of the document conversion, and data entry of the important details contained within each document. This means capturing key metadata from the documents such as building name, project name, document issue such as as-builts, date, paper file location, and disciplines such as architectural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical. Our staff includes archivists who are trained to read and properly index construction documents. The digitized documents can easily be integrated into a document management system after the scanning and indexing is complete.

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. The OCR conversion process converts an image file into a text file then the text file can be searched or edited in a word processor or other text-based application such as MS Word.
To provide our customers with the optimal OCR accuracy we use the most advanced Optical Character Recognition technologies and processes in the industry. It is important to know that the quality and condition of a paper document are key factors in the successful recognition of characters to create searchable text. By enhancing the quality of scanned original page with tools such as advanced color filter technologies to remove any page background colors, multi-light image capture technologies to remove any shadows cast by page creases that could impact image quality or recognition accuracy we achieve great rates of accuracy. However, the software is never 100% perfect, therefore, we offer various levels of service which attract different prices. These range from the basic delivery of the OCR software output (without any human checking or correction) or delivery of a fully verified and corrected version.OCR Conversion Options
