What is Document Scanning?
With document scanning, a scanner is used to convert your paper files into digital images. The images are then stored on CD/DVD, in the document cloud, or both.
What is OCR?
OCR (optical character recognition) identifies the words in your documents, and stores them as searchable data in a PDF file.
Why Should I Have My Documents Scanned?
There are several good reasons to have your documents scanned. First of all, you save space – you no longer need file folders and cabinets. You also save money, because you no longer need staff to manage all those documents. And best of all, you no longer need to worry about your valuable documents being lost or damaged in the event of a fire, flood, or other disaster.
When you have your documents scanned, it’s also very easy and cost-effective to have multiple backup copies on CD/DVD in different locations, again protecting you against disaster. And of course the cloud provides the ultimate backup solution.
Couldn't I Just Do It Myself?
Many businesses and private citizens who deal with only a few documents do, in fact, handle their own scanning. however, if you’re dealing with thousands of documents (or even hundreds), outsourcing is the better solution – you don’t have to purchase and maintain equipment or train staff, so you can focus on other tasks. At eRecordsUsa, we use high speed, state of the art scanners that deliver top-quality images, usually at a far lower cost than if you handled the scanning in-house.
What Happens to My Originals?
If you want your originals, we will return them to you. Most of our clients, however, prefer to have us shred the originals, once they have approved the scanned images.
What About Confidentiality?
Many of our clients (doctors, lawyers and accountants to name a few) are in occupations that require a high level of confidentiality. Accordingly, we never outsource. All our scanning is done in our secure facility, and our employees must pass rigorous background checks. Then they are required to sign non-disclosure agreements, and are monitored via CCTV. We fully guarantee confidentiality from the time your documents are delivered to us until they are returned to you or shredded.
If you want them back, we can return them to you. However, the majority of our clients prefer to have us to shred their documents for them. Your documents will be returned or shredded once you have reviewed and approved the scanned documents.

We needed to have notebooks scanned and eRecordsUSA did just that in no time. The final file was more polished than I expected considering the notebooks had to remain intact. If you need a professional service with a quick turnaround time at very reasonable prices, I highly recommend eRecordsUSA.

I had a box of fading Newsweek and freelance clips. eRecordsUSA did a great job digitizing them. They look great, are searchable, and are conveniently located on one disc rather than in a haphazardly organized box. I recommend eRecordsUSA to any journalists and to anyone who wants to organize their office/life!

We needed many boxes of information scanned and shredded. eRecordsUSA picked up the documents, which was very convenient, and sent us the scans shortly thereafter. The on-site shredding service was an added bonus. All in all, eRecordsUSA helped our law practice truly become a \"paperless\" office

eRecordsUSA did an outstanding job. Considering that we requested the job to be done during the Christmas holidays they delivered the job on time for us to be able to pull out the data needed for our publications. Clinical forms were scanned with high quality and they are easily searchable. Great job eRecordsUSA! I recommend them and I am sure I will ask their help in the future when needed.

As a member of the Sequoia Audubon Society of San Mateo County, we asked eRecords USA to scan old newsletters into PDF searchable files. They successfully scanned 2,853 pages representing 421 files. The newsletters were scanned in B&W at 400 dpi. Prior to beginning the project, eRecords USA provided us with a written estimate. They initially estimated the project to take 4-6 weeks but the project was completed in just 2 weeks. During my initial meeting with eRecords USA, Sharma took the time to ...
I am a happy repeat customer for over 3 years now! eRecordsUSA scanned all my course readers so I could go to class with my ipad instead of a heavy backpack full of paper. Very happy to have found them! Fast and reasonable turnaround time. With OCR, so all my documents are searchable. Thank you, eRecordsUSA!
Very professional. Scans quality is quite good considering the age of the documents. Great customer service, and very good turnaround time. Highly recommended.
I found eRecordsUSA and have been extremely pleased with the work they did, and are doing, for me. I gave them numerous unorganized boxes of genealogy records, miscellaneous documents of all shapes, sizes, quality, and kind, family photos of various vintages, even yearbooks from 1917 and 1918. They have efficiently, and very importantly, created quality scans of all the documents. For the books, they returned the books unharmed. The quality of the scans of photos from nearly 100 years ago, an...
ErecordsUSA was great! They provided us with high quality document scanning and printing and everything was done on time even when we gave them a tight window to work with. Everyone is very friendly and professional and very easy to work with it. They communicated with us very well and got all our scans done in time. I highly recommend eRecordsUSA
I can't imagine a better Newspaper scanning service provider than eRecordsUSA. They are fantastic! We had them scan our bilingual newspaper, El Tecolote, and it was not an easy job because in the early years of our publishing (1970s), the reader flipped the newspaper to get one language or the other. This job required a lot of careful work on the part of the eRecordsUSA staff. I honestly think this company beats every other scanning service in regard to quality and price. Super nice people too!
eRecordsUSA provided a great Magazine Scanning job in several missing issues of a magazine in two languages, and then applying dual-language OCR to make the text searchable. The quality of the scans was outstanding. Recommend them most highly.
Our company needed several magazine articles scanned - apparently a smaller than usual Magazine Scanning project for these guys - but they took it on nonetheless. Some of the pages in the first round of scans were slightly crooked, but they straightened and cropped the problematic pages quickly and efficiently, ultimately delivering great scans. The original magazines were returned in perfect condition.
