Legal Document Scanning

How legal document scanning helps

As every law firm will know, getting through case files in an efficient and hassle-free manner is important.

But when there are complex cases, sometimes taking up a number of files and boxes, it can take great lengths of time to ensure that everything is ready to begin working on something new.

Having a document archive converted into digital formats helps clerks, bookkeepers and secretaries locate important files in moments.

This is thanks to our Optical Character Recognition (ORC) software that allows staff to search for documents using key terms, names, and phrases.

Due to the fact that our bespoke document management systems are created with the needs of the client in mind, we can ensure that individual files and documents are instantly retrievable from even the largest archives.

Legal document scanning boosts security

Here at Microform, we know just how important security is to law firms and legal institutions.

Our document management system is supported by some of the best and latest security systems to ensure the security and safety of all documents that are stored within it.

What’s more, we can also arrange for management systems to be accessible from only a single IP address – meaning that no one outside the company building will ever be able to access any information.

This is, of course, alongside the username and password protection that comes with all our document management systems.
