Document Scanning

Our document scanning service will convert your papers and hard copies to digital records saving you time and space plus giving you a digital backup in the process. Entire file cabinets can be reduced down to one CD that can be easily backed up to keep your data safe. Where records are subject to hazards such as floods, fires, theft, and deterioration, data can be kept password protected, free from degradation, backed up, and duplicated to prevent loss of those important records.


With our OCR (optical character recognition) software we can convert those documents into various forms of editable text files. Lists and tables can even be scanned into Excel files. All documents can be scanned into .PDF files for better security and navigation.


File Formats:

Documents can be scanned into the following file formats:


  • PDF
  • CSV
  • WPD
  • JPG
  • RTF
  • XLS
  • TXT
  • DOC


These are just some, others are available as well. Let us know what you are looking for!


Extras: (Prices below)


  • Organization. Many have arrange their documents just the way they like them using, folders, boxes, envelopes, etc.. With this feature we replicate that same organization onto the computer. Instead of all scans going into the same place, they all are put in respective folders on the digital media mimicking the organization we receive them in. For example, if you had 3 boxes, we'll say for expenses, purchase orders, and invoices. Instead of all documents being scanned into the same folder, there would be a separate folder for each. Folder 1 would have all the documents from the expenses box in it, folder 2 would have all the documents from the purchase orders box, etc...
  • Labeling. Labeling is the next step in organization. If you've labeled your boxes, envelopes, or even individual documents etc.. we too can label the folders and file names to reflect those. For example, if you had a box labeled "2010 invoices", and within you had invoices individually labeled for customers, we would create a folder called "2010 invoices", and within we would name each respective scan to match it's hard copy name such as "HelperTek Invoice, 07/07/2010"
  • Increased Resolution. With the latest in DPI technology we can increase the resolution of the scan on each document to increase it's dimensions and size bringing clarity to fine print, hard to read documents.
