Document Scanning Services

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive



Document Scanning is proving itself to be one of the most effective ways for a business to modernise and is a bi-product of the ability to be more efficient and save space and money. 

Unlike regular document scanning, when documents are scanned for organisations in bulk they are scanned in their hundreds every minutes utilising the latest technology. All documents are scanned, checked and processed into high quality recognisable formats such as PDF and TIFF. Read more about how Pearl Scan can help you with your document scanning needs.

Additional benefits of document scanning

On top of this, when documents are scanned they can also be indexed by particular criterias such as name, reference number, client ID and much more. They can also be converted to fully searchable documents through the use of OCR (optical character recognition) which recognises the characters on the page and adds an invisible layer containing the text so that it is findable and selectable.
