Sir Speedy Scan-to-Archive Service Brings Document Security, Flexibility

Press release from the issuing company

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Dec. 10, 2002—Sir Speedy has expanded its business document services with document scanning and archival. Scanning and archiving is the process of turning paper documents into electronic documents so they can be stored securely and easily retrieved. This process makes documents safe from natural disaster, destruction or misfile. Sir Speedy centers offer document scanning and archival services to small and midsized businesses that want to protect their documents, increase efficiency for retrieving and sharing documents and decrease the cost of document storage. Documents can be made available in a variety of formats for viewing, distribution and reproduction. "Ninety percent of all corporate information lies in unmanaged, chaotic filing structures that are not protected from fire, water or other natural disasters. Creating digital copies of files ensures the security and the longevity of important documents," said Dan Beck, president, Sir Speedy, Inc. Scanned and archived documents reduce the amount of storage space and associated costs required for long-term archiving of paper documents. Document archives that used to fill up an entire room can be condensed into a collection of CDs that fits into a single shoebox. "U.S. businesses spend more than $25 billion a year in filing, storing and retrieving paper documents—a cost that is likely to rise due to the fact that businesses are making one billion photocopies each day," said Ron Zayas, vice president of marketing for Sir Speedy, Inc. "With the number of paper files doubling every 3 years, the ability to quickly access documents is critical to efficient document management." In addition to scanning and archiving, other Sir Speedy business document services include document management, online ordering, variable printing and mailing services.
