Scanning, Digitizing & Archiving

Decades’ worth of paper documents can be expensive to store and difficult to retrieve. Scanning, digitizing and archiving your documents is a cost-effective solution. Don’t know where to start? Give us a call! Joseph Merritt & Company can help with every step of the process—we’ll even come to you.

We can scan your paper records on-site or box up your documents and deliver them to our secure scanning facility. Our scanning digitizes and indexes Aperture Cards, Microfilm and Microfiche, which allows the data, currently accessed by aging and obsolete readers, to be accessed by multiple users from modern devices. Your files will be stored digitally and indexed for easy searches. We’ll box up the originals or shred them according to your instructions.
