Imaging provides a service that is aimed at improving
the efficiency of an office or business by improving the
internal processes. The primary process we focus upon is
handling and retention of the documents since businesses
continue to be “buried in paper”. Our primary
methodology is the conversion of paper documents and
film into digital images.
Documents are scanned using
state-of-the-art equipment and processes to ensure the
highest possible quality. Files are scanned into
industry standard formats such as PDF, Tiff, or JPEG.
Siella can provide additional processing of the images
to make the text searchable (Image and Text), convert
the text into editable content (OCR), and stamp the
documents with customer specific data (stamping). The
images can be scanned in greyscale or color if needed.
images are supplied on CD/DVD along with a control
document that provides permits the searching by customer
specific criteria and hyperlinks that permit the viewing
of the documents. Other results can be delivered by
additional means, including FTP uploads to specific
computer sites. Data is supplied in a format that can be
incorporated into any competent document management
system or data base.

2. Day Forward Conversion
Back file conversion focuses on a
business’s historical files and Day-Forward solutions
focus on the methodology for work done each day. Back
File conversion usually is done in isolation with little
impact on the daily work while Day Forward requires much
more integration and coordination to ensure that the
business functions are not disrupted. Siella’s customer
integration and consultation service are directed at
implementing the proper coordination.
