Document Imaging Designed to Minimize Prep
Implement New Technology
It has never been more crucial to implement technology that empowers you to stay ahead. As popularity for remote and hybrid work models rapidly increase and companies face new labor shortages, digital platforms have become a necessity to keep highly valued employees connected to work. According to a study from Gartner, it’s estimated that in 2022, 53% of the American workforce and 31% of the global workforce will be remote. The agility that digital documents, file sharing, and collaborative platforms provide has overtaken outdated work processes that may have included paper processes and filing systems.
MOVE TOWARDS A DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT
Paper, mail, and physical documents remain a part of business challenges. Aside from all the ways we create and share information digitally, it’s estimated that 95% of corporate information exists on paper. Many organizations still have to deal with paper for payments, loans, insurance, transactions, customer service, records, and voting. With all that information recorded on paper, imagine the inefficiencies and time wasted on searching for business-critical information. Employees spend around 19% of their average workweek searching for, and gathering information.
Working digitally allows your business to find and share information quickly, without the need for inter-office mailings or file storage spaces. The overhead expenses of searching through folders and files, the real-estate savings over storing paper, and the scarcity of people in offices has pushed the need for digital operations well beyond just being more competitive. Digitizing your documents enables you to connect remote employees to your organization and maintain business continuity. By implementing automation into your document-driven workflows, your business will be able to improve throughput, save time, and significantly reduce labor.
Examine the Problems with Manual Document Prep
If you are in the business of scanning documents, whether for your own company or providing document scanning services, it’s safe to say that you are spending more time prepping documents than actually scanning them. Documents come in all shapes, sizes, and conditions that create difficulty during the scanning process, increasing the amount of time and labor needed to complete a batch, or a group of documents. This is the essence of shifting to Right-Speed™ Scanning in capture processes.
In typical document scanning setups, the number of preppers far outweighs the amount of scanning operators, especially when challenging or heavily damaged documents are part of what is being prepped. Damaged paper needs to be taped and small documents need to be photocopied to a larger size. Excessive separators being added to documents also increase this effort. Multiple people handling documents poses risk for private information. Lost pages from document movement to and from multiple workstations, is a trouble spot for business that handle private customer information.
WHAT IS HIGH-SPEED DOCUMENT SCANNING?
Drastically improving both the efficiency of scanning and document handling, Gemini scanners powered by Right-Speed™ Scanning allow you to significantly reduce your reliance on labor by handling documents with only minimal prep work, transitioning between high and low scanning speeds to handle clean, messy, and imperfect documents. As the work becomes messier, Gemini scanners require less preppers, decreasing cost-per-image, increasing your profitability, and significantly reducing labor costs that eat away at your bottom line.
What is One-Touch Scanning?
One-Touch scanning converts physical documents into digital copies but uses a unique out-of-folder or envelope feed method to process mixed (imperfect, and clean) documents. One-Touch scanning may seem slower than traditional high-speed document scanning, but saves the time spent manually prepping, copying, or repairing documents to speed up the overall document handling process. It’s an effective solution for any organization that handles hundreds or thousands of widely varying documents, including non-profits, insurance companies, hospitals, local government departments, law-firms, and business process outsourcers (BPOs).
