Do you have aperture cards that are difficult to access? Would you like to be able to access the drawings on them at the click of a button and even edit them? We think it's time you go digital and get your aperture cards scanned.
It can be expensive to keep aperture cards in storage and time consuming to search through them all for the drawing you need. With CAD software amongst other technology, it is becoming increasingly easy for architects to create their new designs in digital format.
Benefits of Going Digital
It is easier to access digital records as they can be searched by name, date or other details and found in seconds as opposed to searching through piles of aperture cards.
Once a drawing is in digital format, it is easy to edit and make changes to whenever you need to without having to create a new aperture card.
Rather than having to share the aperture card in its only hard copy, you can send a digital copy via email, USB or through an online platform.
Digital drawings are safer than stored aperture cards. They are protected from the loss, theft and damage risks that come with hard copy storage.
Why outsource your aperture card scanning?
The two main reasons you should outsource your aperture card scanning services is due to cost and time. If you attempt to scan your aperture cards in-house, you will need to purchase an aperture card scanner and also hire someone to do the scanning for you. These costs will run up and if this person isn't particularly experienced in this field of scanning, they may take a considerable amount of time to complete the scanning and digitisation. There will also be more room for error.
By outsourcing a company to complete your scanning for you, you will also get a range of options for your scanning solutions including which medium you would like your digital copies provided in such as TIFF, PDF and JPEG. You can also choose from CD, DVD, USB, secure FTP, Halogen or our Pearl Cloud hosted portal to receive your digital copies on.
Here at Pearl Scan, we offer aperture card scanning services tailored to your needs. We have the facilities to handle both small and large scale projects. We can even show you our aperture card scanning process.
