Dec 21st 2016 | Posted By: Webmaster

Operating a busy office often means that blueprints and other large documents get stuffed into a storage room until they are needed again. Because these documents will be needed for all sorts of things in the future, they can’t just be tossed out. But as every facilities manager knows, the plan room, or the space where blueprints are usually stored, is almost always a mess. Blueprint digitization services can help get rid of the messy plan room once and for all, which is great news for a variety of reasons.
