Digitally archive files through new university scanning service


February 22, 2012

It can take about three gallons of water to make one sheet of paper. Scanning and digitally archiving documents can help reduce paper consumption and physical storage. Scanning files can enhance document security and allows for better management.

The ASU-Canon Strategic Alliance Partnership has introduced a campus service based on the high demand for university scanning. Through Canon’s Print U center located at the Memorial Union, on the Tempe campus, departments can inquire about digitally archiving back-logged files and documents.

Scanning at Print U is affordable and secure. Professionally trained team members coordinate secure and private pick-up of your documents to ensure files are transported safely and securely.

Scanning documents will help reduce paper consumption and enhance your files for easier referencing and archiving. Managing sensitive files can be challenging when dealing with old hard copies. Don't let those papers keep piling up.

University scanning services include Optical Character Recognition (OCR). Once a document is scanned, referencing particular sections of your document are made easier. OCR allows your document to stay secure but the text in the file is fully searchable.
