Digitizing your information assets

Home Blog Digitizing your information assets

Digitization – in practical business terms – is the process of creating electronic resources from your physical assets, and has rapidly evolved into one of the most recognized forms of organizational efficiency for companies today, and tomorrow.

Proper digitization is more than just scanning and storing documents in an electronic format. Digitization is a strategy that involves systems, tools and technologies, organization including: meta-data, cataloging and captioning, and most importantly, the right Digital Asset Management (DAM) system.

Digitization applies to all intellectual properties, every physical body of work you own from: books, manuals, white papers, corporate and legal (internal and external) documents, to your media including: photographs, videos, film and fiche, any and all information in a three-dimensional form. In addition, digitization addresses the organization of these physical assets with your digital-born material.

The results are the creation of a highly-functional, and complete virtual resource library.
