Is your Document Organization a Mess?

Bates numbering, Bates stamping, Bates branding or Bates coding is a method used in the legal, medical, and business fields to place identifying numbers and time-marks on images.

Advanced Resolutions Bates numbering option is a useful add-on service that allows you to find which documents have been scanned and which have not.  Also while the documents are added to your computer system each bates stamp will make your document much easier to find and follow throughout the life of each document within your organization. A unique identifier per page makes finding specific pages much easier.

We rarely use a hand stamp for scanning projects anymore, because our scanners are equipped with a stamping mechanism that stamps as fast as it scans. This creates greater efficiencies that we can pass on to our customers.

The documents can be scanned or processed for example, during the discovery stage of preparations for trial or identifying business receipts.

Use the Power of the Bates

Bates stamping can be used to mark and identify images with copyrights by putting a company name, logo and legal copyright on them. This process provides identification, protection, and auto-increment numbering of the images.

Bates numbering is commonly used as an organizational method to label and identify legal documents. During the discovery phase of litigation, a large number of documents might necessitate the use of unique identifiers for each page of each document for reference and retrieval. Bates numbering (named for the Bates automatic numbering machine) assigns an arbitrary unique identifier to each page. Such “numbering” may be solely numeric or may contain a combination of letters and numbers (alphanumeric). There is no standard method for numbering documents.
