Scan to E-Archive Physical archive to fully structured electronic archive

Our Scan to e-Archive is a simple and cost effective electronic archiving solution. It is tailor based for those documents, files and folders which are traditionally stored in filing cabinets, storage rooms or sent to an archive warehouse.

These documents may not be required for day-to-day running of the business but are required to be stored and made available upon request for legal, compliance, business process and customer services. Some of the documents include: Account Payable & Receivable; HR Leavers; Files; Medical Records; Project Folders; Customers Files; Legal Case Files; Property Files and Delivery Notes.

Our Scan E-Archive model creates an exact digital copy of the original file indexed with the file label. Once digitally archived onto a disk, local network folder or on our hosted cloud, the originals are securely shredded after an agreed period with certification.

Our complimentary software provides effective document management, storage and retrieval.
