Scanning documents saves space and is environmentally friendly, but... very work intensive.
All that preparation: removing staples, paper clips and post-its.
Merak is happy to do that for you!
Making your documents “scan ready” requires a whole series of small but time-consuming manual tasks. Merak has a team of scan employees standing by.
They take all of the documents out of their folders and remove staples, paper clips and post-its. This prevents the scanner from getting blocked.
After the preparation phase, we will ask you how you want us to store your files. You can choose folders or files.
Merak uses special separation sheets that our smart scanner recognises. Each time the scanner recognises a separation sheet, it creates a new PDF. We will of course discuss the naming of those PDFs with you.
The result? A clear inventory where you can quickly find that particular document you need.
Once your documents have been scanned, they will be placed in a box, although without a file and staples.
When a book is not allowed to be cut open (because then it would be classified as "the scanning of documents"), every page will be scanned manually by our book scanner. Therefore, your original documents will not only be in the same state, but you will also experience the advantages of a digital version of them (including text recognition!).
The maximum size of an open book is an A2 format (LxW : 594mm x 420mm)
Furthermore, plans are difficult to scan due to their format. By using our special plan scanner, we will guarantee that your plans will be available to you digitally. The maximum width is 90cm, and the length of your plan is practically unlimited.
Your books and plans will be given a file name with a maximum of 15 characters.
Still doubting whether to do your scanning work yourself or entrust it to Merak?
Use our handy tool to calculate the price of your scans and receive a quote. Of course, we will not carry out the assignment until we have received your final confirmation. The quote is without obligation.
This tool is suitable for assignments of fewer than 300,000 pages in A4 or A3 format.
That amount is equal to approximately 17 linear metres, or the equivalent of 250 binders.
