Comment: Scan Your Paper Files - As you may know, ILW.COM launched a new venture in 2010, SpeedyScanning, a document scanning service that scans and digitally archives paper files for lawyers and law firms. While our company serves only the New York metropolitan area, file scanning is a project that attorneys everywhere should consider. If all your old client files are scanned, archived, and indexed, you will ultimately save time and money. You and your staff will never waste time looking for misplaced files again. More importantly, you will be able to easily search for, find, and duplicate files when you work on similar matters in the future. Finally, you will save the money you're spending on a storage facility or, worse yet, an additional office in your suite that is being used as a file room. For information about our service or scanning in general, please see www.SpeedyScanning.com, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 212.545.0818.
