SIS NW Inc. Information Services NW, Inc. helps businesses in
Oregon and Washington convert their paper to digital files where they can be stored, shared, and managed electronically using ColumbiaSoft’s document management software.

Portland, Ore. – April 6, 2010 – SIS NW Inc. Information Services NW, Inc. (SIS NW, Inc.) has joined ColumbiaSoft’s network of technology providers and will work with the document management software company and its customers in providing outsourced paper conversion services.

“Together, we offer a seamless transition to digital, with less risk and less challenge,” said Glenn Odell, president of SIS NW, Inc. “Companies that are looking to improve business processes and gain the benefits of a paperless office can count on a combination of our services to scan and manage information.”

“SIS NW Inc.’s reputation for exceptional project management and service quality, combined with their broad technical capabilities, makes them a trusted choice in outsourced scanning,” said ColumbiaSoft executive vice president, David Pogue.

Using start-of-the-art scanning technology, SIS NW, Inc. provides high-volume paper-to-electronic conversions for businesses in Oregon and Washington. SIS NW, Inc.’s back file scanning helps businesses digitize existing archives of documents stored in filing cabinets, boxes, and warehouses – eliminating the cost of storage, and making it easier to search files electronically and retrieve information. The company’s day-forward scanning services help businesses maintain a paperless operation by digitizing records on an ongoing basis.

Outsourcing the conversion of paper also helps save time and money by eliminating the need to scan files internally. More consistent and accurate scans, with precise capture of content, improves document indexing, organization, and ultimately the ability to find and retrieve documents later after they are placed in the electronic document management system. For example, SIS NW, Inc.’s advanced scanning process allows it to OCR (optical character recognition) words so they can be electronically searched, and apply metadata (facts about the files) that helps organize information. Once in ColumbiaSoft’s Document Locator document management system, information can be easily shared, retrieved, stored, and more.
