What are the benefits of Large Format Scanning?
1. Enhanced quality. The scanners we use to convert paper to digital are able to pick up feint lines and clear up areas on documents, ensuring an exceptionally sharp digital image – perfect if you’re then sending the file on to one of your clients.
2. Saved space. Gone are the days when you’d have to find room in your office to house large paper documents. Instead of herding your employees together like sheep in an attempt to free up some space, digitising your documents will ensure that Ben from the drawing team and Sally from facilities are not restricted for office space.
3. Protection from damage. Converting your large documents to digital files means that you will always have a back-up of your hard copies, whether you choose to discard the paper version or not. Losing an important document that is attached to a crucial client isn’t a situation that any business wants to find themselves in.
