Paper Scanning

Microform offers a wide range of paper and document scanning services.

It is increasingly popular for businesses, organisations, institutions, and charities of all sizes to convert their files and archives into digital formats.

Here at Microform, we have a wealth of experience when it comes to scanning paper documents, having worked with international corporations, medical and healthcare organisations, and financial institutions – to name just a few.

Benefits of paper scanning

When it comes to converting paper records and documents into digital formats, businesses can appreciate a wealth of benefits including:

Improved storage

For businesses that own large archives the scanning process instantly frees up physical spaces, allowing many companies to expand and grow within their building without the need to move premises.

Improved security

With files backed up on secure systems and servers, digital files and records can only be accessed by authorised personnel.

What’s more, once the physical papers have been scanned, and the digital formats have been uploaded to servers, they are forever protected from safety hazards such as floods and fires.

Improved accessibility

Having files and records on a digital database enables any single document to be sought and accessed within a couple of seconds.

Businesses and organisations around the UK have gained thousands of hours of case-handling time and in return have saved vast sums of money.

Paper destruction and recycling

As many of our clients choose to scan their documents and files to improve physical storage space, we also offer a secure paper destruction and recycling service.

By having old papers destroyed and recycled, companies benefit from tighter security.

If a company happens to have particularly rare or noteworthy papers, or would just like to keep hold of them for their own records, we also provide a secure return service.

For businesses or organisations that do wish to have their papers destroyed however, we offer full privacy and destruction – putting the papers through an industrial shredding machine before they are then compacted and recycled into new material.
