Iron Mountain Scan and Store solution brief


Today, organizations need to prepare for a scalable digital future, but much of their important, usable data is still locked up in paper documents that are difficult for employees to access or use. Organizations have difficulties managing multiple, growing information systems; securing the information they’ve gathered; and then finding and accessing that data – especially in hybrid work environments as real estate reduction continues to be a business priority. And, as transformational technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) become mainstream, organizations will feel more pressure to digitize their information as that is the only path to AI.


The impact of digitization cannot be overstated. Managing paper documents costs organizations both time and money: For example, one Iron Mountain InSight customer reported saving up to 26,000 hours per year1 through increased employee collaboration with digital documents.

What if you could

With competition growing and employee work models changing, businesses need to accelerate their digitization strategies. This change is complicated for many of them. But what if you could use a digitization and digital storage solution to:

  • Prepare your business for an accelerated, scalable transformation into a more efficient future?
  • Deliver robust, secure access to documents and information anytime, anywhere?
  • Boost productivity, easily searching for, finding, and sharing documents from any location?

Reduce time and effort to find your information

Leverage the combined power of physical document scanning and secure digital storage in the Iron Mountain InSight Digital Experience Platform (DXP). InSight DXP grows with your business, offering a comprehensive platform enabling you to expand your capabilities as your requirements change, including the ability to increase digital storage, number of users, and functionality, such as workflow automation.

As markets intensify and new technologies such as AI help companies leverage their information to accelerate time to market, Iron Mountain can empower organizations, instantly enabling digitization. You can have secure, digital access to your documents from within Iron Mountain InSight DXP, a secure, cloud-based SaaS platform.

Once converted, documents are stored in our secure cloud platform, InSight DXP, which adheres to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), so that your confidential data stays that way.

An intuitive client portal gives administrators control over the data being brought into and used within the system, providing rolebased access control and extensive reporting for administrators as well as robust search capabilities for users.
