Project requirement:

To scan legal documents and convert the scanned images into the PDF format.

The challenges:
  • The client intended to create a digital archive of its legal documents. The work, hence, had to be done with a lot of responsibility. There was no room for errors.
  • The documents numbered about 500,000. This was one of the biggest projects we had undertaken.
  • All the scanning had to be done on very high resolution. It was important that the documents lost no clarity or legibility after being converted into the PDF format.
  • In some cases, with especially old documents, the scanned image had to be cleaned of stains and blemishes before being converted into the PDF format.
  • The scanned images also had to be indexed.
The solution:

The scanning and indexing services professionals at took charge of the project. A team of ten scanning and indexing services professionals set about scanning the documents on three high speed ADF scanners. All scanning was done on 1200 dpi. The scanned images were passed on to image editors who removed all spots and blemishes from them. Every scanned image was also double checked to ensure that its clarity and legibility are optimum, only then was it converted into the PDF format. After the images were converted into the PDF format, they were indexed in a manner that they could be easily searched and retrieved. The finished project, before being handed over to the client, was put through a thorough quality check.
