SALVAGE DAMAGED OR LOST RECORDS
Even if an organisation chooses to retain paper documents to work with once they have been scanned the scanning process can prove too be invaluable. Paper records are vulnerable to a number of natural threats. They can perish over time or simply be misplaced through constant access and refiling. By preserving a digital archive if disaster strikes within your physical paper archive you can always rely on being able to search and retrieve the digital copy image of the file which may help you ensure that you are compliant with records management regulations.
