As an experienced solutions provider of records management systems and services, ADS has developed a reputation for reliability and dependability in meeting short deadlines and providing top quality services to our clients throughout Florida. We have developed “best practice” workflow and quality control measures now prevalent in our industry.

Our primary focus in the service bureau is the conversion of standard paper and large-format drawings to digital images. Because of our extensive work within the service bureau division, we are uniquely qualified to provide both the services and systems required offering a breadth of knowledge not possessed by companies focused mostly on software installations.

Pricing Considerations

Document Imaging Services are priced on a per image basis. A 15” file box contains approximately 2,000 images costing $80 to convert. This price could be higher or lower depending on volume and complexity.

We offer QUALITY LOW COST conversion services due to many factors.

  • Extensive Industry Experience (over a decade of service converting millions of images)

  • Leading Software Technologies (Kodak and OpenText Software capture products)

Technical Considerations

File Types
Most records are converted to PDF or TIFF format while some engineering applications prefer a JPG file. File types may vary by industry and department, but the general industry trend is to convert to a standard PDF or searchable PDF file.

  • Commercial, Medical and Legal Records (PDF)
  • Government Records (TIFF)
  • Engineering Records (JPG)

Index Schemes
Index schemes vary based on the current manual filing system, the electronic management document type standards and search requirements of end users. After a decade of records conversion experience, we can quickly define indexing schemes and folder structures conducive to your working and electronic environment. Files can be sorted numerically, alphabetically, by file name, file date or any field desired.

Index streams can be exported based on technical requirement of other systems so that your records easily import into existing Document Management Systems.

File Naming Considerations
File names should be considered at project inception. A file name should never be repeated thus avoiding replication conflicts. Typical file names include a month and year reference along with a basic descriptor. We can determine file names based on our experience or accommodate specific naming conventions required by your technical staff or software.

Scanning Resolutions
We offer scanning resolutions starting from 200 DPI (dots per inch) to 1,200 DPI. The industry standard is between 200 and 300. Historical records and those requiring detailed search capabilities will often be scanned at higher resolutions. Because higher resolutions lead to significantly larger file sizes, we typically project an estimate of total file size, by project, to ensure our customers have sufficient hard drive or network storage space. File retrieval times are also decreased by larger file sizes and should be considered at project inception.

Black & White / Bitonal Scanning
We operate high-speed production scanners with advanced optic systems. In tandem, we utilize leading capture software such as Kodak’s Perfect Page and OpenText document imaging software products. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best image quality possible through our advanced technology.

Color & Grayscale Options
We offer advanced color and grayscale scanning for detailed and critical documents.

  • Color Scanning - Photographs, Maps, Charts, Highlighted Documents, Permanent Records
  • Grayscale Scanning - Photographs, Aerial Maps, X-Rays and Certain Medical Records

Optical Character Recognition
We perform optical character recognition (OCR) at resolutions to provide the highest accuracy results possible. The end result is searchable PDF files enabling critical research in a fraction of the time required in a hard copy manual environment.

Why spend countless hours reading and researching hundreds or sometimes thousands of pages when OCR technology can streamline efforts by 80%.

Storage Requirements
Below is a basic guideline useful in determining Hard Drive and Network Storage Space Requirements.
