Scan Plans for Emergency Situations

Improve access to documents for remote teams while maintaining compliance

Digitizing may not have been considered a priority before COVID-19. But paper based systems are still in place and are now causing a challenge for companies trying to meet their work from home requirements.

Scan Plans can help companies who are not ready or do not have the budget to digitize entire collections of documents.  We can help identify what is most relevant and vital to business continuity by simplifying the process. It doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” initiative.

Bradford Systems has smart and affordable scan plans that can be customized according to your budget and your company’s unique needs. We have a team of records management professionals that can guide you through budget friendly options and meet your current needs while still providing options for future enhancements.

Benefits of Scan Plans

  • Our team will safely pack, track, and transport your documents to our secure facility that aligns with the CDC precautions.
  • Scan plans are customizable and provide you with the tools you need at a cost you can afford.
  • Free secure storage for your hard copy documents during the duration of your scan plan.
  • 12-24 month plans available. Longer durations available for large collections.

Use our scanning services only for as long as you need to. Once all your documents have been scanned, you have the option to safely dispose of your papers instead of keeping them in an off-site storage facility. No more paying for mountain-high storage fees every month!

Sample Scan Plan

  • Intake & inventory of 500 boxes (we can also provide packing labor and materials if needed)
  • Identification of key records that are relevant now.
  • Monthly or quarterly scanning based on your budget amount
  • On demand scans with no service fees during your scan plan

The Importance of Quality Control

The Importance of Quality Control

Quality Control

Our reputation as a quality provider of secure scanning and digital conversions is based on consistently exceeding our client’s expectations. We achieve this by having a comprehensive Quality Control Plan and strict adherence to rigorous quality standards.

Standards of process and procedure have been developed and are included in all our records and information management projects. Standardization enables high-quality production of goods and services on a reliable, predictable, and sustainable basis. Standardization assures us that important elements of a process are performed consistently and in the most effective manner. Changes are made only when data shows that a new alternative is better. Use of standard practices allows us to:

  • Reduce variation among individuals or groups and make process output more predictable
  • Provide “know-why” for operators and managers
  • Provide a basis for training new people
  • Provide a trail for tracing problems
  • Provide a means to capture and retain knowledge
  • Give direction in the case of unusual conditions

Our standard process incorporates a “single task” function that enables team members to conduct Quality Control (QC) of the previous task before conducting their assigned task. These controls allow for a 4-point QC system that has been developed over 20 years to address expected errors. Each error is always documented and tracked to identify the root and process changes are made accordingly. We have developed studies and compiled data that validates a document requires a 4-point check to ensure the maximum accuracy and accountability.

The utilization of technology and internal controls also allows us maximum control of the stages, tasks and final audit of every project. If you’d like to learn more about how we implement our quality control into every stage of your digital transformation, please contact us today.
