Digital Conversion Provides Flexibility for Hardcopy Records

ARMS digital conversionARMS Inc. Integrates Paper and Hardcopy Records with Digital Technologies

Companies looking to enhance operational efficiencies and ensure the long-term viability of valuable information are embracing digital conversion strategies. ARMS Inc., a leader in digital conversion, provides cost-effective services focused on integrating hardcopy records with digital technologies.

The development of software that enables easier searching of digital assets is providing the momentum behind a growing emphasis on digital conversion. Organizations that historically had relied on physical storage and searches are contracting with service providers such as ARMS to integrate paper records into a modern digital environment.

“Scanning of paper documents comprises a significant portion of the digital conversion process, along with digital conversion of microfilm, photos and other physical records,” says Eric Haas, president and CEO at ARMS. “Organizations also benefit from converting images, microfilm and other media to a digital file.”

Top Reasons for Digital Conversion

Companies of all sizes are transitioning to digital formats because of the cost and operational efficiencies they offer. Each of the following benefits carries significant value for an organization, and the advantages become even clearer when considered in total:

  • Space savings – Dedicating hundreds, if not thousands, of square feet to storage of paper documents and other hardcopy records is not the most effective use of a very expensive asset – your building.
  • Remote access – Traditional box storage systems require in-person access either by a member of your staff or a storage service provider. Digital assets make it possible to establish controlled access from anywhere, anytime.
  • Ease of searching – Imagine how quickly and easily you can access specific files when all you have to do is type it into a search function. The time savings from this feature alone makes converting to digital files a cost-effective benefit.
  • Protection from disaster – Converting paper and hardcopy records to a digital platform protects your data from fire, smoke, water and other environmental catastrophes. The ability to more effectively control access through password protection also complies with HIPAA and other privacy regulations.
