Why businesses invest in bulk document 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.



Digitisation of documents provides a vital inventory of your business’ data allowing document retention rules to be applied at file level, ensuring your organisation is fully GDPR compliant.


Operational efficiency

Physical documents are at risk of loss  and deterioration - all of which can affect operations.


Security and compliance

Paper records can be lost or misplaced  and difficult to trace - ultimately risking your business’ security and compliance status.


Proven governance

Proven project governance capabilities on large and highly sensitive nationwide scanning projects.
