If you’re familiar with the Discovery TV show MythBusters, then you know how the cast of the show uses methods to debunk or verify specific myths, rumors, adages, and other commonly held assumptions. We at Microtek often find ourselves in similar situations as the cast of MythBusters when we work to disprove certain myths regarding the benefits and advantages of our services. In a recent conversation with a potential client, they continued to maintain their belief that scanning and digitizing their files and records would be more expensive and less efficient than their current paper and labor intensive physical search process. So we put on our hats as MythBusters and changed their mind!
For almost 50 years, the professional team at Microtek has worked day in and day out with clients who maintain paper, microfilm, and microfiche files and records from weeks, months, years, or even decades in the past. Our specialty is helping our clients understand the facts regarding document scanning efficiencies and savings, and then making sure that their archived documents are readily and easily accessible for all of their daily needs.
Here are 3 common document scanning myths that we at Microtek have disproved with our clients:
- MYTH: Maintaining a non-digitized system isn’t that costly. FACT: Upon scanning project completion, a major insurance company client reduced employee overtime required to manage their old system by more than 50%!
- MYTH: Searching through paper files doesn’t really take up that much time. FACT: Upon scanning project completion, a local equipment manufacturer client saved hundreds of work hours annually due to the new ease of document access and retrieval!
- MYTH: Paper files really don’t take up too much room. FACT: Upon scanning project completion, a major university in Missouri client vacated large amounts of storage space, allowing them to expand their operations for more important needs and requirements!
Once we share these facts regarding efficiencies and savings that are recognized as a result of scanning paper, microfilm, and microfiche files and records into easily accessible electronic files, our potential clients see that we are able to bust the myths they hold so true.
