As the business of records retention management transitions to a digital environment, organizations are finding value in working with service providers who specialize in integrating paper records with today’s digital technologies. ARMS, Inc., a leading provider of records storage, and document and microfilm scanning, offers physical document storage services alongside digital technologies that provide a range of options to fit any comfort level or access need.
“We offer a hybrid approach that features the advantages of physical records storage while integrating paper records with digital technologies,” says Eric Haas, president and CEO at ARMS, a trusted provider of records management and destruction services. “Many of our clients like the idea of going paperless, but it’s not necessarily a task they want to complete all at once.”
“Day Forward” Scanning Can Play a Role in Integrating Paper Records
One of the more popular strategies ARMS recommends is a “day forward” paperless environment in which the company scans existing hardcopy documents and microfilm images on a scan-on-demand basis. This alternative to a full back-scanning file conversion effort reduces the client’s capital expenditure while gradually integrating paper records with digital technologies.
“A full back-scanning initiative can be a significant investment,” Haas says. “Most of our clients understand they need to be moving toward digital solutions, but they may not have the resources or desire to make the leap all at once.”
ARMS is a leader in consultative and digital conversion with specialists who offer guidance for clients in determining the most cost-efficient and task-effective storage options or integrating paper records with digital technologies.
