Before the turn of this century, most businesses were literally drowning in paper. Every document generated by any business was printed on paper, sometimes multiple copies for distribution, read off of paper, filed on paper and eventually stored on paper. The ubiquitous file cabinets grew larger and larger. Entire industries developed to handle the printing, distribution and storage of paper documents. Entire forests perished for these documents. FedEx was founded on the idea of getting paper to and from customers overnight! Entire mega-sized warehouses existed to store nothing but paper. Looking at that period in the history of business from today’s vantage point makes the practices seem wildly inefficient.
These days the internet has emerged as the most effective and convenient way to transfer data, overcoming physical and geographic barriers in the blink of an eye. If your data doesn’t currently exist in the digital realm, it will soon need to. The process is called Document Digitization.
In brief, the digitization of a document is the conversion of a paper document into various digital formats. With the advent of digital technology, it is now possible to convert physical documents like newspapers, periodicals, books, images, texts, and other business paperwork into a digitized version such as pdf, doc, Xls, XML, jpeg, gif, HTML, CD, tape.
The migration from paper to digital can be painless if you plan carefully and choose the right partner. Career Prime routinely handles this kind of work. We are safe, professional and reliable.
