Structured cabling is a standardized approach to data and voice communication within large or multiple buildings. The benefit of structured cabling are many, and include greatly reduced maintenance, construction, relocation and repair costs.

Document Management Recovery

Document Management & Recovery

There is a growing trend of “going paperless” in the IT industry. Even given the digital age we live in, a large number of business tasks and communications are still done manually on paper.

The obvious challenge of paperwork is how to manage it, store it, and retrieve it when you need to. With paper documents, these three tasks are incredibly time-consuming and inefficient. In today’s business climate, your employees and management need to have access to documents instantly to function.

SCIO Info Tech offers document management and recovery services to help our clients remove the avalanche of current and archived documents. The documents are digitized and integrated into a searchable electronic database with authorized access security that allows your staff to locate key information immediately when they need it.

These tools come in the form of visual aids, videos, onsite coaching teams, 1 on 1’s, ebooks with audio readings, and more revolutionary interaction that will change the way people use employment and navigate educational landscapes. We even go beyond education and assist with journeyman positions, internships, job boards, and other integrating structures so that the most important part of education is not forgotten.
