Once Rick Gingras narrowed his options down to those companies able to offer digital imaging and provide searchable results, two more things made an impression on Rick – Docufree’s professionalism and the value of the pricing model.
“The Docufree presentation was clear and informative. Our contacts were able to simply explain how each step in the process would work and provide clear answers to our questions. We got quick responses and they didn’t oversell me. Docufree simply delivered exactly what they said they would and at the price they said they would.”
“In this instance, the straight-forward approach of box pricing made a great difference to me. It meant I didn’t have to sort through 78 boxes trying to figure out what and how much was in each. Docufree stepped up and offered a per-box rate that was competitive and easy to predict. And the outcome was a higher quality.”
What Docufree does for SSAI.
Rick’s U.S. Air Force client needed several boxes of documents scanned to PDF formats - and then destroyed in a safe and secure manner. They needed the digital images to be organized and searchable.
“We had catalogued the contents for our client, the Air Force. Then Docufree’s service automatically applied our indexes. The Air Force was then able to easily find the individual documents when they needed them. Docufree was able to identify exceptions in the process. Had the documents been merely scanned, those exceptions might have been misfiled and very hard to find later.”
Docufree’s online tracking process allows Rick and his client to view not only the status of the project as it is being completed but the actual format in which the scanned documents will appear. This allows Rick to stay abreast of the progress and head off any issues early. It allows Rick’s client to rest easy knowing the final product will be both what they requested and easy to use.
Having to sort through boxes before scanning defeats some of the benefit of outsourcing the work to go paperless. Docufree offers a fixed box pricing that allows you to exactly pinpoint the price. This saves you time and the tedious task of handling documents someone else will handle anyway. More importantly, there are no surprises at the end of the project. You don’t have to worry the estimate was deliberately lowered just to get your business. Docufree provides a fixed per-box cost up front.
Document Scanning Services.
”Docufree scanned in excess of 200,000 pages for us—scanned to PDF, digitized, and made searchable.”
Certificates of Destruction.
After digitizing the Air Force documents into Searchable PDFs, Docufree then shredded and destroyed the original material at the request of the client. “We require proof that the scanned documents are destroyed in a secure manner. Docufree does that and provides us with a Certificate of Destruction that can be maintained on file for future reference.”
SSAI’s Air Force client had remodeled the facility where these paper files were stored. Initially, the plan was only to store the documents but then the client determined that digitized files were needed. Discs of the information would need to be created and the files on the discs would need to be in a searchable format.
Docufree’s advanced methods produced that result seamlessly. Now the client can open the list of files, find a particular file, search for a specific piece of data and do all of that without having to move between applications. Everything is now in a searchable PDF format.
