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

EDM's approach to document scanning
Your personal requirements are discussed and assessed 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.
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 scanning.
All documents are compliantly scanned in accordance with regulatory requirements using the latest, state of the art scanning machines.
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.
