If your law firm has been on the fence about hiring a document scanning service, it may be because you have been fed some misinformation. Here are three myths about legal document scanning. Perhaps clearing the air will move your firm to take care of this important process.
Myth 1 – Scanning Documents Is Simple
Not when you have an entire room of documents that need to be scanned and readable. Plus, it’s all hands on deck when you have a case. There’s no time to have an employee spend all day in the records room (and there’s certainly no time for a partner to do it).
Myth 2 – It’s Too Expensive to Outsource
First of all, it’s a lot cheaper than having someone in-house do it. Second, you ensure that the project is performed quickly and accurately, so it won’t have to be redone or you don’t have to worry about someone taking their sweet time because they have a dozen other projects due.
Myth 3 – It’s Not Safe
Confidentiality is vital for law firms, but your records are at greater risk from theft or damage due to natural disasters, floods, and fires right now. Scanning them into digital form allows you to protect your documents offsite while still having access to them any time you need to do some research into a past case or client.
