The way we create, keep and share information has undergone a massive transformation over the past few decades. And as the world prepares for the Fourth Industrial revolution, it’s clear that organisations that optimise the way in which they handle their data are the ones that will have the competitive edge in delivering excellent customer experience.
Sabinet has been digitising old, archived and printed material for over 20 years. Our expertise in this area allows us to identify the unique requirements of any organisation to ensure cost savings and improved business processes.
One of the key benefits of digitisation is the way in which the ability to access information changes when it is digitised. Information that was previously limited to audiences who could physically visit a location, can now be shared with a limitless, global audience. This ease of access and increased audience further means that certain information gains a potential commercial value, creating a new revenue stream. Digitisation also allows for increased collaboration and resource sharing.
Sabinet’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) digitisation services ensure that paper documents are transformed into searchable, full-text electronic documents.
Additional benefits offered by Sabinet’s Digitisation Service:
- Save on storage space and costs
- Share any of the digitised content easily via email
- For ease of convenience we can digitise documents on-site at our facility or off-site at yours
- Fully POPI-compliant: sensitive data never has to leave your premises or servers
- Project scope, duration and costs are tailored to meet your budget and needs
After utilising the digitisation service, Prof JH Kroeze of the University of South Africa (UNISA), commented “The PDFs are of high quality and searchable. Our SAICSIT Council and members are very impressed with the results. The service was excellent, and the work was done timely and professionally.”
With a sound performance history of over 35 years, Sabinet has firmly established itself as a leader in facilitating access to a wide spectrum of high-quality and credible information sources. Over the course of the last three decades, Sabinet has built a strong local and international reputation for providing Africa’s information to the world and the world’s information to Africa.
Sabinet’s mission to support libraries’ technical processes, promote resource sharing and enable access to information sources is underpinned by its commitment, partnerships, understanding and support.
Sabinet’s roots are in library support services, where it is recognised for providing central platforms for collaboration and resource sharing among libraries.
