Determining How Many Paged You Have in Your Files

Document Scan Canada, Inc.


Calculating the number of pages that need to scanned can be easily estimated by knowing two variables.  By measuring the number of inches of paper,  you then factor in out the number of pages you have per inch.  Knowing both of these variable,  simply multiply these numbers, the product of these two variables will be a good estimate as to how many pages you have to be scanned.

Determine how many pages per inch you have in your box of documents and average this our by doing the same with a few other boxes of files that you have.   Average these numbers out to get your typical pages per foot and then measure the total number feet you have of the boxes that contain your files.                  

                 The table below displays the typical number of pages per box type

There are about 220 pages per inch of paper and approximately 175-250 pages per inch in a tightly packaged box

A global consulting firm recently concluded a five year international performance cost study, which found that personnel spend up to 4 hours a day looking for information! When critical information is trapped in files and on paper productivity, performance and profits are dramatically affected, impairing an organization’s ability to achieve its full potential.
