Fulton, Md. – Quality Associates, Inc., an established provider of services and solutions for document management, imaging, and archiving, recently created a digital document archive for the Baltimore-based Fund for Johns Hopkins Medicine, the office that helps raise charitable gifts in support of Hopkins’ mission. The cost of the project was not disclosed.

Building the digital archive required scanning and indexing of more than 582,750 pages within approximately 11,000 donor and alumni background files. Previously, these files were only available in printed form and occupied 37 five-drawer file cabinets. The new archive contains high-resolution images of the original paperwork, and authorized staff can now easily search for specific files using a straightforward keyword search.

Quality Associates’ Business Development Executive Greg Chalmers said, “Universities have large networks of alumni and donors, and these organizations are looking to modern technology to better manage their record-keeping processes. High-resolution digital images of documents can readily take the place of printed files, while offering new search and retrieval capabilities that ultimately save staff time and effort because the right information can be located quickly using a staff member’s computer. Quality Associates is extremely pleased to deliver the digital document archive to the Fund for Johns Hopkins Medicine.”

Founded in 1986, Quality Associates is a GSA Federal Supply Service (FSS) contract holder that has developed a strong track record in providing data conversion and archival services and systems for local, state, and federal governments.
