Scan & Shred Bookends of Document Management

Document Lifecycle Management

Document lifecycle management involves overseeing documents from their inception to their final disposal. This process ensures that critical information is preserved during its useful life and securely destroyed when no longer needed. Scanning and shredding are integral at opposite ends of this lifecycle, acting as protective bookends that maintain the integrity and confidentiality of information.

Scanning for Digital Preservation

Scanning is the first critical step in document management. By converting physical papers into digital formats, scanning services like those offered by PROSCAN® help preserve the longevity and accessibility of information. Digital documents are easier to store, search, and share, which enhances efficiency and reduces physical storage costs. Importantly, scanning also serves as a preemptive security measure. Digital files can be encrypted, backed up, and protected with advanced cybersecurity measures that are not possible with physical documents.

Shredding for Secure Disposal

Once documents are no longer needed, secure shredding ensures their complete destruction in a manner that is both compliant with privacy laws and protective of sensitive information. PROSHRED® specializes in methods that obliterate documents to a degree that they cannot be reconstructed. This practice is crucial for preventing unauthorized access to confidential data and for complying with legal standards such as HIPAA for healthcare, FACTA for consumer rights, and GDPR for data protection in the EU. Shredding not only secures information in its final stage but also completes the protective cycle initiated by scanning, fully eliminating any data breach risks associated with improper disposal.

Total Solution For Your Documents

Together, scanning and shredding encapsulate the complete document lifecycle. PROSCAN® andPROSHRED® synergistically ensure that sensitive information is securely managed from its digital conversion to its final physical destruction, thus safeguarding both the data and the environment. This comprehensive approach not only meets but often exceeds industry standards for information management and security.
