Scanning in the legal environment
Anyone working in the legal sector i.e. solicitors, barristers, courts and administrators all handle and manage substantial quantities of paper on a daily basis. A lawyers billable hours maybe their stock and trade, but a signature on paper is the medium of much of the legal system. Documents form the basis of communication, reference, negotiation and execution of contracts, laws and evidence. The amount of paper that fuels and is processed in the legal system is enormous.
The offices of many legal firms are inundated with boxes and filing cabinets full of paper. It is expensive to store and retrieval requires human intervention to physically search and verify the document in question. Once found, the document usually is handled further (copied or mailed) adding expense to inconvenience. Then there is the expectation that the document is returned to the proper file location, and the risk is that it is not filed correctly.
Scanning incoming and legacy documents into PDF format with Xerox DocuMate Scanners can change the entire document paradigm in a legal office. Xerox have a broad range of scanners with varying speeds and paper handling choices to streaming the paper-to-digital conversion at the desktop and departmental level. Xerox Scanners come equipped with award-winning software solutions which are ideal for scanning in the legal environment.
- Allows mixed sized media to be scanned in one batch via a robust document feeder. This means that the documents don't need to be sorted in advance of scanning as they can all be scanned at the same time in the same batch.
- Auto detect if the document is colour or B&W and save them to the correct format in one batch. This is a useful feature because if all documents scanned in the same batch were treated as colour the file size would be huge, so automatically just scans B&W documents in B&W to reduce file size.
- Auto rotation of the document so that it is always displayed the right way up. Automatically detects when a document in a batch has been scanned upside down and rotates it so all documents are the same.
- Initiate a workflow with the touch of one button. Visioneer OneTouch provides an easy to use scanning experience that sends your scanned document to nearly any destination by simply touching a buttons on your scanner. The scanned file is automatically delivered to a folder, email, Microsoft Office application, a local or network printer, a custom application or even the cloud. The resolution, colour depth, file format and paper size are all pre-set, but can be changed at any time. OneTouch is also integrated with Visioneer Acuity, which means the image enhancement features are all available with the simplicity of one button scanning.
