U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)

The Department of Justice (DOJ) makes grants for victims of crime, community oriented policing, sex offender tracking, and a number of other research and law enforcement programs. But until recently all grant applications, over 17,000 of them, were submitted only in paper format. They filled an entire room at DOJ's headquarters. The Department's required to retain all proposals and to perform random audits of this collection. But to comply --to find and verify any individual proposal-- had become a nightmare.

Edge Digital Group proposed and implemented a program that quickly and accurately scanned and digitized all of these legacy proposals. Now searches take only seconds, audits are performed with ease, and what was a jumbled storeroom has been freed for more productive uses.
