At Calgary Archives, we have a variety of options to help you convert paper records into electronic documents, saving you time, space and money. We prepare documents to ensure that the best image possible is obtained. This includes removal of staples, paper clips and bulldog clips. Documents can be captured in full colour, black and white, grayscale or any combination of these. Final images can be output in many different file formats, whatever is best for you and your business.

Files can be output in a wide range of file formats including:

  • Adobe Acrobat, PDF, PDF/A
  • TIFF
  • JPEG

Experience in the records management industry gives our Imaging Department a unique ability to understand our customer’s records and what information is most important. Making your information more available and more functional is our goal.

Data entry procedures are utilized and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology creates index records for your converted digital images. Accurate indexing facilitates the efficient future retrieval of document images for converted source media.

In our Imaging Department, it’s all about time, service and security. Our aim is to help you access your key information quickly, saving time and increasing your productivity. Our services ensure the records you need are only a mouse-click away.
