OCR Digitalizing

There are several factors that can affect the cost of digitizing written documents, including the volume of documents to be digitized, the format of the documents (e.g., whether they are on paper or already in digital format), and the desired level of accuracy and quality for the digital copies. Here are some general tips for reducing the cost of digitizing written documents:

Use OCR (optical character recognition) software: OCR software can be used to convert scanned images of written documents into editable text files, which can significantly reduce the cost of digitization.

Use bulk scanning services: Some companies offer bulk scanning services at discounted rates, which can be a cost-effective option for large volumes of documents.

Use in-house scanning equipment: If you have a large volume of documents to digitize, it may be more cost-effective to invest in your own scanning equipment and digitize the documents in-house.

Consider the cost of storage: While digitizing documents can save money on physical storage costs, it’s important to factor in the cost of storing digital copies, including the cost of hardware, software, and maintenance.

Prioritize which documents to digitize first: If you have a limited budget, you may want to prioritize digitizing the most important or frequently used documents first.

Explore grants and funding opportunities: There may be grants or other funding opportunities available to help cover the cost of digitizing written documents. It’s worth doing some research to see if any of these options are available to you.
