Preserving Historical Records and Media Files
Historically significant records and media files are susceptible to deterioration from use and natural conditions, such as heat and humidity.
Scanning and storing documents electronically preserves them for longevity. We recommend custom scanning and imaging services, as well as, safely conserving the originals. Access offers storage media vaults for original records and files. Our secure, climate-controlled storage facilities surpass fire-rating standards and are equipped with dry fire suppression systems.
Through scanning and imaging, these older legacy records can be shared electronically, reducing the amount of physical handling required. Content may actually become more readable through scanning. In addition, the threat of natural disaster and record destruction can be reduced, as the scanned and imaged documents become a secure backup of the original

What kind of documents do businesses scan and store?
Accounting documents, HR documents and employee records, bills of lading, blueprints, government ledgers, birth and death certificates … documents of all types and sizes can be scanned and stored while maintaining compliance with any necessary regulations.
Can you scan materials other than paper documents?
We strive to provide full-service scanning solutions. Our scanning service includes photos, art, slides, film, and negative scanning.
Does scanning help in the case of emergency?
It absolutely does. Fires, floods, and even simple spills can erase your work and make record-retrieval a nightmare. With scanning, you do more than save space. You gain peace of mind.
How much do I need to prepare my documents?
Not much! We’ll take care of staples, clips, extraneous notes, and more. We’ll also make sure torn or damaged documents get scanned with the same level of care.

How can I manage my scanned documents and records?
Our system allows for more than access: you can securely share documents around the globe, reducing costs and improving data privacy. With advanced search features, your life has suddenly become a lot easier.
Do I only scan to clear space? Can I get my documents back?
Of course. We can ship documents right back to you. In this case, you maintain your physical records, but are able to take advantage of the search-and-access services our systems allow. We can also securely store your documents, giving you access to the physical records but without the need for on-site storage space.
What is the quality of scanned images?
The quality of the scanned documents is as good as the document we scan—and in many cases, even better. High-tech scanning can improve legibility in many older documents.
What happens to the original documents after scanning?
These can be stored offsite in secure locations using our secure storage facilities or underground, protected vaults. Fire-safe, flood-proof, and secure from any crime, the documents exist as long as you need them.
