Challenges in the Digital Archiving Project

BOP faced several challenges during the course of the services for this scanning, digital archiving, and data entry project including the pace of the work was both demanding and time intensive about the sheer volume of the documents. Additionally, the delivery speed changed depending on certain internal requirements that the client was dealing with at any given time. Some of the handwritten documents also presented challenges for the OCR capabilities in our sophisticated automatic scanners.

BOP’s Customized Process for the Digital Archiving Project

BOP approached this project with the mindset of mitigating challenges while executing a successful project pipeline from start to completion:

  • BOP completed a 1-day client requested a trial project consisting of 6 PDFs converted into Excel and delivered through Dropbox. Upon quick client approval, the full-time contract went into effect, and BOP assembled a team of 20 FTE data entry, conversion, and management specialists.
  • The client shared over 50,000 PDF documents that required scanning, digital archiving, and data entry. The BOP team started by scanning the paper documents using automated scanners to capture special fonts and characters with greater degrees of accuracy.
  • OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software was utilized for a faster conversion, which ensured there was no loss of any original handwritten, typed, and printed data. Data enhancement, validation, deduplication, and discrepancy resolution was performed before the data entry process.
  • Careful quality checks were performed by a Quality Control lead for all converted batches to verify 100% error-free data. Completed files were delivered daily, where it was approved by the client’s team.

Exceptional Steps Taken to Better Meet the Client’s Requirements

BOP took extra steps to help the process go more smoothly and streamline the client’s workflow, including developing a custom database with a simple search function for more easily readable and digestible information.
