When considering a scanning and digitization company, Quality Control (QC) isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. After all, when you hire a professional to do the job, there’s an expectation it will be done right.
However, when you’re a large scanning and digitization company dealing with millions of pages each month, the sheer volume of paper and resulting scanned images could contribute to potential problems. Many businesses set internal quality standards at rate of 99.5% accuracy. Assuming most organizations can accept an error rate of .05%, thousands of errors would occur over a million pages, and that’s simply not acceptable.
That’s why Micro Com Systems in Vancouver has implemented rigorous and proprietary production task and procedure manuals specifically for paper and micrographic files being converted to electronic images.
This isn’t simply a spot check. It’s a full pre- and post-scanning program to ensure that pages are readable—and that the final digitized results are accurate and true to form.
QA isn’t easy. And not all scanning companies hit the same standard. As a business that’s evolved over 43 years, the team at Micro Com have continually checked and doctored their process. Today, they are confident it holds up as one of the best in the industry.
There are many times when QA will take longer than a scanning job. But when so many businesses rely on you accurately capture and digitize information, it’s the only way to consistently deliver quality results. That’s why QA isn’t just a process at Micro Com—it’s a promise.
