In today’s economic environment manufacturers must increase their overall business efficiency and reduce costs in order to remain competitive. Pressures to reduce product life cycles, improve quality, enforce standards, and comply with regulations make it vital for this sector to implement a document scanning and conversion solution. The Advantage Companies can assist by converting paper-based documents such as shipping/warehouse receipts, CAD drawings, letters, standard forms, reports, and even Emails into a digital format that can be searched and retrieved for viewing or printing.
The people at The Advantage Companies have been converting files for manufacturers for nearly a decade. Customer or vendor inquiries are answered within seconds; not days or weeks. Customer service is enhanced by the ability to rapidly provide access of information and resources to branch offices, remote workers, partners, and vendors.
Many of our document scanning and conversion projects are done at our clients’ facilities. We have several teams of onsite technicians that are experienced in working at customer sites, including the installation of scanners, PCs, Servers, mini-networks that are not connected to client systems. We are able to maintain high volume production while accommodating document requests, customer work schedules, etc. Customers who prefer to have us pickup their documents can further reduce costs by having the conversion done at The Advantage Companies.
When at our facility, access to documents in our possession are tightly controlled. We operate in a 24-hour security monitored building which has strict entry requirements and employ video monitoring of our environment. Our complex network is protected through comprehensive monitoring. Our own vehicles and bonded drivers handle all pickups and deliveries, and Advantage’s production facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is centrally located to Des Moines, Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City and Omaha.
