Background & Challenges
Increasing numbers of grants are being submitted electronically via grants.gov. However, thousands of hard-copy grant applications remain in storage. These archives comprise millions of printed pages and occupy valuable storage and office space. Staff must take the time and effort to manually locate and retrieve needed files and then sort through potentially hundreds of pieces of paper. Should a file be misplaced or damaged, the information contained within the file could be permanently lost.
To help reduce reliance on paper archives, enable easier access to information, and preserve paper-based information, Quality Associates has developed a streamlined approach that converts hard-copy “legacy” grant applications into digital files that can be easily searched and accessed by authorized staff.
Quality Associates’ legacy Grants Conversion process combines advanced software from Kofax, the world’s leading provider of information capture software, with experienced hands-on professionals who perform the work.
