You can decide whether you want 100 percent conversion of all your historical records, or reduce the cost by selecting specific files or categories of files for conversion. After backfile conversions are completed, all new records can be converted on a day-forward basis. This will minimize your need for additional future backfile scanning.

Backfile and on going daily / weekly Document Scanning provides:

  • Intelligent purging of inactive and unneeded records
  • Expert guidance on which specific files or groups of files should be scanned
  • Indexing and off-site storage of all your files
