Document Management Solutions

In your business, you accumulate critical documents. You need to organize, store and have easy access to all that information. Archiving and retrieving information may not be your core competency. It is ours. Advantage Information Management Solutions (AIMS) manages and provides solutions tailored to your specific requirements. It is a new name, but the team at Advantage Archives has provided document management solutions in Eastern Iowa for many, many years.  We pride ourselves in our understanding of business documents and their impact on your bottom line.

Hosted Imaging Solutions

Data and document hosting services from Advantage Information Management Solutions include designing and implementing cost-effective Web Based Document Management systems. We use these systems to create a web accessible archive that leverages the latest online based document management technologies. Each application is customized to meet a client’s specific needs for an online web document hosting application.

Digitization Of Microfilm

Microfilm scanning plays a very important roll in any document preservation and access strategy, and Advantage Information Management Solutions are world leaders in this field – the result of over 30 years of working with micro graphic media.  Our microfilm laboratory has converted hundreds of millions of images from microfilm, microfiche and aperture cards.

DocuWare Consultation & Sales

DocuWare is an integrated document management solution that can automate business processes by managing any type of document, regardless of format or source, in a central document pool – for example paper records, letters, faxes, drawings, PC and other electronic files including e-mail. DocuWare supports all forms of electronic signatures. Integrated records management ensures that all access is secure, controlled, and logged.

Microfiche Scanning

Our document scanning services for micro-graphics are unmatched – the result of years of working with micro-graphic media.  Our microfilm laboratory has converted hundreds of millions of images from microfilm, microfiche and aperture cards. At Advantage Information Management Solutions we offer many options for conversion of microfiche to digital image. Although similar to microfilm roll scanning, microfiche images must be individually scanned, and the conversion requires more time than roll film.

Imaging Software

At Advantage Information Management Solutions we support a wide variety of document scanning and imaging systems. The primary focus of this division of Advantage Archives is on document scanning and conversion services.  We have been an Authorized DocuWare Partner (ADP) for several years but we are not limited to importation into their system.  Our extensive in-house programming team makes us a unique service bureau.
