In-house or Outsourced Document Scanning

Who Will Scan the Documents?

This is a fundamental question that needs to be answered before purchasing a digital document management solution. The decision is different for every company depending on their business goals, budget, availability of personnel with the required skill sets, data security, number of locations, volume of documents to be scanned, and a myriad of other factors.

You Scan Them or We Scan Them for You

Document scanning and management solutions come in all shapes and sizes, but the answers to the “who does the scanning?” question fall into 3 categories:

  1. In-house or onsite scanning
  2. Outsourced or offsite scanning
  3. A combination of onsite and offsite scanning

Hybrid Scanning Solutions

For some companies, a blended approach of outsourcing some scanning projects while continuing to scan other types of documents in-house is the best approach. This hybrid approach offers a middle ground between on-site and off-site document imaging conversions. For example, companies converting to digital document management and plan to scan their documents in-house will often outsource the scanning of their backfiles in order to get their paperless system up and running as quickly as possible. Other companies may chose to only scan confidential information in-house and outsource the rest of their document scanning.
