Fast, secure and nationwide - whether you have a box to collect or would like us to organise a collection of hundreds of boxes, our logistics team will work with you to arrange the collection of your documents at the most convenient time for you and in the most cost effective way possible.
If you need additional assistance to have your files, boxes etc. removed from filing cabinets and catalogued or from third-party storage supplier's facility, this can also be arranged for you as well as if you require any boxes, packaging material or special fragile items such heritage material, books, large maps or documents to be collected in security marked lockable containers.
Prior to scanning documents, we go through the files and remove any document fasteners, such as staples, paper clips, treasury tags and post-it notes. All documents, including the attachments and receipts, are kept in their original order to ensure a smooth and accurate scanning process takes place and to guarantee the quality of all documents scanned.
We use the latest document scanners equipped with ultra-sonic double-page-feed detection, automated colour detection and image optimisation technology to ensure optimum scanned image quality.
The document can be scanned either black and white or like-for-like as per originals, our document scanning equipment can handle document sizes as small as a trains ticket to A3, any large documents such as maps, plans and technical drawings are scanned on our wide-format scanners.
Once the documents have been scanned, we can then index each file, folder or a document by the required index criteria (metadata) for example, title, name, address, reference number, date etc. to enable better storage and search capabilities.
We can apply OCR processing in order to convert your scanned documents to fully text-searchable scans (images). This can be very beneficial for searching particular documents by their contents (keywords etc.); while the OCR search used together can also help to locate any misfiled documents.
Rigorous quality control checks are applied throughout the document scanning and capture processes, as well as a separate dedicated department is allocated to perform quality checks in accordance with our In-house manual, and third-party audited EN BS ISO 9001 and EN BS ISO 27001 standards.
To ensure extra layer of security, the data can be encrypted at the highest available level of encryption.
The final scanned data can be supplied either on a Disc, USB Drive or downloadable from our SFTP.
