What is digitisation?
Quite simply, it’s the process of creating digital copies of physical items.
All kinds of items can be digitised. Common requests include documents, maps, photographs, slides, negatives, videos and audio recordings.
- For easy access
Digital documents can reach a much wider audience via computers, tablets or mobile devices. Digitised content is versatile and suitable for mass communication across channels.
- To view old formats
Breathe new life into your old slides, view your VHS tapes or listen to cassette recordings again.
- To protect and preserve materials & documents
By making a digital copy of a document, you protect the original. And if the original is ever destroyed there is still a record of it. Digitisation also extends an item’s life as its contents are accessible without physically handling it.
- To save time
We take care of the whole digitisation process, from planning through to execution, so we do all the work.
- To free up space
While physical documents take up a large amount of space, digitised records could potentially use only cloud-based storage.
