Document Scanning Services
At Images-On-Line, we have extensive experience in all aspects of document scanning and related services.
Do you need a scanning company to assist with your imaging for standard A4, A3 documents, large format A2 to A0 drawings, smaller formats, colour, black and white or greyscale, book scanning, photo and 35mm slide scanning or microfilm/microfiche/aperture card scanning?
We can provide scanning for multiple document types via our award-winning production scanners and management software from Kodak Alaris. In addition to this, our leading-edge bureau production software allows cross-system compatibility with a number of document management systems, together with office applications like Microsoft, SAP & SAGE.
Production Document Imaging or Scan-On-Demand
High volume production document scanning or scan-on-demand options are available for different applications, with each coming with its own cost benefits. Our latest-generation Kodak Alaris production scanners create high definition document scans, without loss of detail or quality.
A number of our clients have highly confidential records, meaning restrictions apply to these documents leaving the premises. In these instances, our specialist on-site team can move our equipment to your office or work premises to scan the records, meaning you won’t need to worry about any confidential information getting into the wrong hands.
We can also work around you, either working in conjunction with your own staff or autonomously, to accommodate your ideal timings.
Colour and Black & White Production Document Imaging
Your document records can now be captured selectively, either as a colour image (for those records with a visual impact, brochures, P.O.Ds, invoices etc) or as black & white monochrome images. The latest generation of production document scanners is colour enabled, breaking the barrier of price and performance for colour document scanning.
The big benefit of using colour is how great the Document Image Clean-up images look, distinguishing between similar tones.
In addition, our advanced production software provides a number of methods to further enhance the appearance of the original document images, including:
- Deskew straightens tilted scanned document images.
- Despeckle removes random noise (specs) from the original scanned document image.
- Character Enhancement improves the quality of scanned document images, particularly beneficial for handwriting, signatures and dot-matrix type fonts.
For a fraction of the cost of conventional systems, we offer the cost-effective document scan-on-demand Facility.
With this option, documents requested by e-mail, fax or telephone by registered users, are manually retrieved from our extensive hardcopy storage facility. The retrieved documents are then scanned and published over our secure website, and made available via a secure password-protected internet connection.
Large Format Production Imaging or Scan-On-Demand
Images-On-Line provides scanning for all sorts of large formats. Whether it be A0, A1, A2, posters, maps, plans or an engineering drawing, our bespoke service also offers the ability to digitally enhance artwork in readiness for mass production.
Microfilm & Microfiche Scanning
Many companies hold large document archives on microfilm or microfiche and often find it cumbersome and problematic to locate and view the documents. Images-On-Line can scan the microfilms to create a digital library with all of the advantages of storing documents electronically. The scanned document images can then be indexed and treated in the same way as scanned paper documents – either via our innovative online retrieval software, hyperlinked CD/DVD-ROM’s, or as images to be used in your existing Electronic Document Management (EDM) system.
