Law practices and the benefits of scanning and the use of OCR


Benefits of Scanning to a legal firm

Law practices will handle thousands of documents every day. Digitising these documents has revolutionised the operational process of many practices.

There are many reasons that have led to this change, but the principal one is that when legal documents are scanned there is no need to retain the hard copies, thus eliminating bulky files and space consuming cabinets in expensive office space.

Once in a digital format they can be safely and securely stored on external storage devices or cloud-based systems.

Using the cloud, documents and files can be shared with multiple colleagues wherever their location via most web enabled devices.

What is OCR?

Optical character recognition (OCR) is a technology that recognizes text within a digital image. The scanned documents containing typed, printed or handwritten text are converted into machine-encoded text.

Benefits of OCR to a legal firm

Performing OCR on digital files offers multiple benefits. However, due to the lack of proper understanding of OCR, many practices do not incorporate it.

The misconception is that after documents are scanned, they remain as static images, and it is difficult to identify one document from another.

However, using OCR they can be electronically edited, searched, stored more compactly, displayed on-line and extracted text-to-speech, making the files more dynamic and usable.

With OCR it is also possible to convert digitally scanned images to editable files. These electronic files may be of different formats, such as Word files, CSV, PDF, Excel spreadsheets, XML and other variations.

These are easily searchable and there is no difficulty in locating items quickly on external storage devices or cloud-based systems.

OCR enables the users to find documents by typing keywords or phrases that are known to be in the document. Thus, even if the user is not aware of the actual file name, they can find the documents quickly and easily.

This saves a considerable amount of time searching that file or document.

document management for accountants

Document management services for accountancy firms

Document storage, management and archive services for accountants

Like many other sectors, accounting practices are under increasing pressure to provide cost-effective, accurate and fast services. The accountancy marketing is more competitive than ever and with this in mind, it’s important to make the most of the latest document management and archive systems.

Here at PDM we work with a number of accountancy firms, providing them with a range of solutions designed to help them streamline their systems, improve efficiency and cut costs.

Tailor made solutions designed to meet your individual requirements

Accountants have always had to cope with mountains of paper documents generated by their clients and whilst this is unlikely to change in the near future, there are steps you can take to manage accountancy processes. Accounting documentation such as client files, audits, VAT, PAYE, Corporation Tax and general correspondence can all be filed and stored electronically under one document management system. Not only does this enable the efficient location of information, it also ensures everyone involved can access the documents they need at the touch of the button.

Here are some of the benefits a document management system could offer your accountancy business:

  • Provide authorised personnel with the access they need to client information.
  • Staff are able to manage their workloads better, helping them to work more efficiently.
  • Improve data security and ensure you are protected as all information is regularly backed up and encrypted.
  • Provide an improved service to your clients.
  • Cut the costs associated with off-site document storage.
  • Last and by no means least: de-clutter your office space and reduce your reliance upon paper documents.
