When you live in a hybrid world of paper and electronic information without a unified view of your information, you and your employees spend precious time searching for what you need. When you do find the information you need, if it’s in paper format, you still can’t easily access or quickly share with others, especially your remote workforce.

Through a combination of Iron Mountain’s document scanning expertise, infrastructure and a modern, secure cloud storage repository, Iron Mountain Document Scanning and Digital Storage services enable you to take the first step on your digital transformation journey. We can help you prioritise and achieve your goals through a series of Backfile Conversion and Day Forward Scanning programs. You can even have your inbound physical mail redirected to our secure facilities, and our team of experts will receive, open and scan your mail.

Your scanning will be done by the provider that you already trust with your paper documents and can help you manage the entire information lifecycle for both physical and digital information. You’ll be able to centrally access your information, free up valuable workspace and make handling of your information & its usage much easier.

If you want leadership to invest IN digitisation, you have to provide measurable proof of the value of your efforts.
