Helping businesses become paper-free through bulk scanning
EDM's approach to bulk document scanning
Your personal bulk document scanning requirements are discussed and assessed by EDM experts in order to provide the most efficient and cost-effective options.
The documents to be scanned are collected from your premises and transported by vetted drivers in highly secure and tracked vehicles. We monitor every step of the process.
The documents are checked in and subsequently barcoded which will allow you to access and track your data electronically at all times. At this point, the documents are also prepared for the bulk document scanning process.
Our bulk document scanning is compliant with strict regulatory requirements using the latest, state of the art scanning technology.
Digitised information undergoes a strict quality assurance process, in-line with your document retention policy.
Data is stored in a secure hosted document management platform and can also be delivered to your core systems for access.
Have you considered EDM's Scan-on-Demand service?
EDM specialises in providing a Scan-on-Demand service. This enables you to get the best of document storage and bulk document scanning, freeing up real-estate whilst providing digital copies as and when you need them.

Why businesses invest in bulk scanning
Reduction in costs
Cost of maintaining space for high-volume physical records can impact businesses financially. Investing in bulk document scanning will mean switching physical documents with digitised ones - drastically reducing estate costs.
Digitised documents are available instantaneously to staff, can be shared easily and reviewed simultaneously. Digitised images can be made ‘text searchable’ with our OCR capability meaning you can find the information you need with a simple search.
Bulk scanning and the digitisation of documents provides a vital inventory of your business’ data. Inventory knowledge (at a file-level) is of paramount importance for accurate document retention and to ensure your organisation is fully GDPR compliant.
Improve operational efficiency by letting our experts manage, archive and scan documents, providing rapid, digital access through our EDMonline digital platform.
Security and compliance
Paper records can be lost or misplaced and difficult to trace - ultimately risking your business’ security and compliance status. Whether you choose our Scan-on-Demand service or bulk document scanning, your files will be secure with our fully-compliant digital ecosystem.
Proven project governance capabilities on large and highly sensitive nationwide document scanning projects.
