Advanced Imaging Systems An Information Management Company Since 1972, we have provided our customers
high quality document imaging,
and storage solutions.
Much consideration needs to be taken when planning the implementation of a document management project. Outsourcing your document management allows you to focus on your core business functions while letting a specialist handle the project better, faster, and less expensive than it would take to manage it internally. Dedicated Document Management organizations are constantly investing in the latest technology while building a very controlled process to streamline the data conversion and hosting. Outsourcing is also a much more budget friendly option since there are no upfront capital costs needed nor annual maintenance costs to support.
Why Outsource to AIS?

Top 10 Excuses For Not Considering Document Management This Year
If your organization is thinking about finally embarking on that long-postponed document management resolution and you are worried about the push-back you'll likely hear from your management, let us save you the time.
If we need to, we can usually find it...
We usually can find the information we need when a customer calls. Sometimes it takes a while, but once we send out an email to all staff asking for the information, it usually shows up after a bit.
No one will ever sue us. Who would ever want to sue us?
I’m sure if push comes to shove we could find whatever we need to defend ourselves. Let’s not go looking for problems.
We’ve got to pick our battles...
Even if it’s true that organizations typically spend $20 in labor to file a document, $120 in labor to find a misfiled document, and $220 in labor to reproduce a lost document, it’s chump change to us.

Who cares if the average document is photocopied 19 times? Not my problem. I’ve got more important things to worry about.
It’s good for staff to be busy...
We understand that professionals can spend up to 50 percent of their time looking for the right information. That’s what we pay them for.
It’s easier to just get everyone together in person.
If my staff needs to work together on a project, we find it more productive to send everybody a draft in advance and then have everyone fly in for a few days and sit together with all of the different versions and just hammer out the details. Plus everyone likes staying in hotels and having nice dinners.
Our business isn’t located on a flood plain or anything.
Sure, when we see all those paper documents floating around after a flood on the news, we feel bad for those people. But we’re not located in a place where disasters happen.
Information security just isn’t at the top of our list.
Yes, we lock the doors at night. And yes, we keep the HR files locked. And yes, we use passwords on our computers. But we need to be flexible. If people want to take information home and work on it on their home computers, that’s a good thing. We trust our employees.
Change is expensive
When I need to get an invoice approved, I just put it in the right department’s mailbox at the front desk. They usually pick it up in a few days and sign it. We file it and then every few years pack up the old files and send them to off-site storage. Why spend money to automate something this simple?
This information management stuff is just too squishy
Managing our financial assets is important to us, so we invested in a top-notch financial system. Managing our people is important, too, so we invested in HR systems. But information is just not as critical. And managing it seems so complicated.
