Guarantee future access

Documents can still be retrieved and accessed safe in the knowledge that they are fully protected from potential damage, loss, theft and deterioration.

Maintain full compliancy

Archiving documents professionally, improves compliancy and retrieval by ensuring safe, secure and appropriate storage of private and confidential information.

/ How It Works

1 / Consultation

Based on an honest and expert assessment of your requirements, we discuss, advise and recommend a suitable scanning solution for your business.

2 / Collection

Your materials are picked up and safely transported to our facilities. Before we leave, all materials are checked to ensure nothing is left behind.

3 / Scanning

Upon arrival, your documents are thoroughly inspected before we carefully prepare them for the scanning process. Once digitised, the images undergo a rigorous quality assurance procedure to ensure legibility, completeness and where appropriate, pagination.

4 / Indexing

Scanned images are indexed (named) as per your instructions. This is achieved by using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software and techniques to capture information on the document automatically or by manually keying the information in from the scanned image.

5 / Delivery

Your digital images are delivered to you for approval by your preferred method along with your original documents.

6 / Destruction

If you longer wish to keep your original documents, we will arrange for them to be securely destroyed or recycled at our facilities.
