Optimize your HR records system by securely

Your HR teams will gain tremendous efficiency thanks to digitalized employee records.
Here are some of the main benefits to having employees' records digitized:

  1. Improve overall security and protection of confidential information
  2. Save time finding the information fast
  3. Improve process and standardization
  4. Protection against floods, fires, other natural disasters
  5. Access for all necessary information from any location
  6. Stay in compliance about how long documentation should be kept
  7. Space saving, especially the large files of long-time employees

As the largest HIPAA-compliant scanning service provider in the US, ARC will handle your sensitive information in one of our HIPAA compliant facilities, so your records are protected and processed following the strictest requirements. Our scanning experts will transform your sensitive information in digital records so you can improve HR document management.

Paper documents age terribly, on the other hand digital documents don’t have that problem. Collaboration is easy and fast as team members have access to the information based on their authorization levels. For example, HIPAA compliancy rules limit who can access specific information, digitization ensures the confidential information is kept separate.

For compliance issues, certain documents can only be kept for a set amount of time. Scanning helps us keep in compliance by setting reminders for the team to dispose of the files no longer

Overall security and protection of confidential information is also maintained. In addition, the records are protected against floods, fires, other natural disasters. Digitization makes all this so much simpler.
