How does aperture card scanning work?

1- Collection

We will pack and collect the aperture cards from your office through our internally managed fleet of tracked vehicles. For large-scale projects, a collection schedule will be arranged to suit your diary.

On arrival, all archive boxes are booked onto our internal tracking system and transferred to production where each aperture card is digitised into your preferred format (e.g. PDF).

The electronic records are uploaded to the cloud, enabling flexible, remote access and effective document management. Alternatively, you can choose access via SFTP or an encrypted hard-drive.

Finally, we can arrange for the physical aperture cards to be securely shredded. Alternatively, for your peace of mind we can store the archive or arrange their physical return to your office.

Aperture card scanning benefits

Reduce costs

The price of aperture card readers can be far more extortionate than the actual requirement to access that particular document. Outsourcing the digitisation of your aperture cards eliminates the need to invest in expensive capture equipment. Once your records are digital, they can be easily shared and transferred with employees across the organisation.

Free up your office space

Scanning your aperture cards into a digital format frees up valuable office space which could be put to better use as additional desk space or a new training room.

Protect your records from loss & damage

Aperture cards are extremely susceptible to heat, humidity, fire and water damage. Just a few scratches could result in the information contained being damaged for lost forever. With our scanning solution, you can have the peace of mind knowing digital backups are safely stored in a cloud-based document management system.
