Document Destruction: Document destruction is available with Certification of Destruction. All documents are shredded and certified disposed.

Document Retention: ARS Legal, Inc currently guarantees document retention to our clients for at least five years from the date the materials were scanned. Let us know if you require a longer retention date.

File Preparation: Before documents are scanned, our imaging staff removes and discards paper clips, staples and two-hole clips. At the scanning stage, a decision is made to scan sticky notes if they contain relevant information, otherwise they too are discarded.

Document Scanning: ARS Legal, Inc scanning software automatically straightens misaligned pages, corrects pages that are too light or too dark, and enhances difficult to see markings made with highlighters, carbon paper, or pencils.

Divider Tabs: All medical records are organized with tab dividers that identify different hospital records and charts, billings, medical history, and doctors' notes.

Image Formats: ARS Legal, Inc can store images in all popular formats including .jpeg, .tif, and .pdf. In addition, we can use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to facilitate more detailed searches of scanned documents. If you have another file type or image format that you need, contact us for more information.

Document Indexing: Locating and retrieving particular documents is accomplished by indexing. ARS Legal, Inc indexes documents by attaching a number of words to a document's database record. Once these words are sorted, a search can be performed on the database allowing you to retrieve your documents quickly and easily.

Page Numbering: To organize documents and to ensure document completeness, ARS Legal, Inc electronically page numbers documents as part of the scanning and document import process. Easily identified page numbers that range across all the sheets are added to all the pages in your scanned document package.

Document Annotation: As with Page Numbering, any wording can be added as a header, footer or across a document, in another color or a shade.
