Engineering, Architects and Construction companies need to maintain a final copy of each building they design for compliance and emergency management. Where are these drawings being held? Are they being stored in a plan room on multiple hanging drawing racks, organized into flat file cabinets, or are they stored in a pile on someone’s desk? Searching for a particular plan while using any one of these storage methods can be a complete hassle, requiring physical labor and time. The cost to store drawings can exceed $5000 a year!
Digitizing your paper drawings with Graphic Imaging Services can provide you with information you can use for both day to day operations as well as emergencies. Not only will we scan your records, but we can custom index these engineering drawings based on which fields you will need to search by and then import them into our TIFFany Engineering Document Management Software. Common index fields include Project Number, Permit Number, Revision Number, and Date, but these fields are fully customizable to fit your organization’s needs.
As experts in the scanning of large format documents, we can secure your paper data and index it to a searchable database your employees can use!
