To help you decide which file format you would like us to scan your documents to here is a summary of each one we offer:
Normal PDF: The most common type of PDF, used for storing Word/ text documents. It will show the full text on the page and produce a close copy of the original whilst still being a relatively small fi
Image only PDF: This is a PDF created from scanning in images. These files will not contain any searchable text but still be a true representation of the original, showing images in a PDF 'wrapper'.
Searchable PDF: If you prefer to have your documents converted into a fully text searchable format, then we can offer OCR Processing. This can be particularly useful when trying to track down specific documents, which once processed will be searchable by both their text and data.
JPG is the most commonly used image file format. Digital cameras and web pages normally use JPG files - because JPG compresses the data into a smaller file- ideal for document storage. However, during the compression process, some of the quality is lost so this may not be the best option if you want to store high quality images.
At Topwood, we specialise in bulk scanning of documents and images as well as regular scan-on-demand services. We often combine our storage services with out scan on demand service through the indexing of archiving at file and box level. Customers can then request a file to be scanned on demand and sent electornically to the customer. This saves the hassle of delivering the file if a scanned copy is sufficient.
Alternatively bulk scanning offers customers the ability to covert their hard copies into electronic documents and moves them towards the first step of a paperless office. Visit our scanning pages to see what we can offer. Or contact us through our contact form.
