(How iArchives works)
Our digitization process is driven by an automated workflow system designed and built by iArchives specifically for document digitization. This workflow system will facilitate your digitization project, supporting all necessary administrative responsibilities through both manual and automated tasks. The system facilitates image enhancement, metadata creation, optical character recognition, and custom formatting of output for database ingestion. Following most stages in the process, iArchives staff will ascertain the quality of the output from one process and input to another. If quality meets pre-defined requirements, the work continues – if it fails, the work returns to the prior stage to be corrected. Custom validation software is then executed to ensure that the format and structure comply with the strict standards established by the client and iArchives.
The automated system directs each image through the series of automated and manual tasks which incrementally build the output. Since so many of our processes are automated, we can deliver a very high volume of perfectly composed data.
