Safeguard Your Documents

A digital version of your historical document collection means those words and images are safe from disaster and decay due to time. Document scanning followed by our image cleanup and optical character recognition (OCR) process accurately preserves history and makes it accessible to future generations.

All Types of Originals

We work with documents, books, photos, memorabilia, and much more.

Careful Scanning Process

Not all items can survive an autofeeder. We select the best scanner and scanning method for each item.

Image Cleanup

Sometimes you want to to display an item but the original is degraded. Digital image cleanup can fill that gap.

Scanning for Paperless Offices

Many small businesses are moving from file cabinets to searchable file databases. Does your small business’ data still exist only on paper? Has it already been digitized, but poorly? Document scanning services are the solution. Anderson Archival’s team of document conversion specialists keep your business efficient and your data safe from loss, natural disaster, and outdated technology.

Digital databases should be accessible and efficient, meaning a quick keystroke can bring relevant documents to your screen instead of hours wasted looking through boxes. Digital copies and guaranteed backups circumvent malware, ransomware, or data loss from natural disaster or human error.

Scanning for Periodic Audits

If your office isn’t already operating paperlessly and is frequently subjected to audits, having organized, readable, digital copies of your work is essential. Digital files are readily available to send and share, making the audit process quick and painless.

Scanning in preparation for audits can occur on the timetable you choose: monthly, quarterly, yearly—whatever best meets your needs. Our team quickly and accurately scans your data, keeping originals organized and un-damaged. Do your scans need to be searchable? Our team can add metadata and even perform OCR.
