What aspect of your role as IT/Imaging Manager do you enjoy the most?
I have always enjoyed empowering our clients to retrieve information rapidly and take control of their electronic records management. Scanning paper or importing digital records can provide answers in seconds to clients and employees, especially if the system is set up right.
What’s the biggest change you’ve seen over the years in the document scanning industry?
Using machine intelligence to mine data and extract information from paperwork. Scanning went from storage and retrieval to creating valuable data repositories from what were once stacks of paper. Scanners have improved dramatically in image quality and detection of double feeds. It used to be commonplace to manually compare images to paper files, page after page. This was a burdensome and time-consuming process. Scanner technologies across the board have become more reliable and efficient.
