Document Scanning Services Barnsley

At Microform we work with businesses in Barnsley to digitise documents through high-resolution scanning and Optical Character Recognition (OCR).

This allows hardcopy documents to be turned into text and image files for digital storage – allowing them to be kept on a secure server with only authorised access, or backed up to the cloud for disaster recovery.

Our document scanning services in Barnsley are extremely secure, from our fleet of tracked vehicles, to our premises with highly restricted access, to securely shredding any hardcopy documents that are no longer needed.

At all times we work with you to achieve the outcome you need – whether that means PDFs that contain searchable text, JPEGs that make the most of your storage space, or TIFFs for maximum image resolution.

Our Document Scanning Process

1Consultation and collection

Arrange a consultation with one of our scanning experts to assess the requirements of your business so we can discuss, recommend, and advise the best document scanning solution for your business.

From there we collect your documents using our own marked and tracked vehicles before carrying out an extensive inventory at our highly secure premises to ensure that each and every document is accounted for.


Once preparation is complete, and the individual documents have been inspected, we pass them through our scanners, which can scan up to 16,000 documents per hour.

From there, each and every image is put through a quality assurance procedure to ensure legibility, completeness, and pagination.

3Indexing and delivery

As per your instructions, we index and name the images using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software and techniques.

Once a second quality assurance has been completed, the images are then securely handed over (digitally or physically) for sign off. Scanned documents are then returned or shredded as per your wishes.
