Why Choose the DMC to Process Your Documents and Data?

Because we scan and read virtually any physical media, and we attach meaning to the digital output. We deliver clean, easy-to-read PDF versions of documents, along with the original image.

In fact, because Grooper reads document information, you now have the ability to do more with document content.

For example, content can be redacted, used to create a standardized file name, exported as a text file, merged with external database information, or integrated directly into another Grooper environment or software application.
