We are a company providing cost-effective and scalable document scanning services throughout the UK and Europe. Our scanning bureau is able to scan any volumes and types of documents.
We provide professional document scanning and digitisation solutions within the UK and Europe, and have managed small to large volume scanning projects for the both public and private sectors. Our typical projects span from something as simple as scanning documents to PDF format to more complex document scanning requirements, involving the data to be scanned, categorised and formatted in a specific way for various industries and third party document management software requirements.
The physical and virtual data security and confidentiality of the data is at the forefront of our operations, all our staff is fully vetted to DBS/CRB, comply to GDPR requirements and we are fully accredited to major industry’s accreditations; ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 14001, PCI, Cyber Essentials and IIP.
Using our expertise and state of the art high volume scanning equipment we can scan and convert documents of all types such as HR files, AP invoices, Lever arch folders, Ring binders, Client folders, Medical records, Planning and Building control application files and daily post.
After we scan your documents, we are able to provide the scanned data in file formats such as PDF, Text Searchable PDF (OCR), TIFF, JPEG, etc. Additionally, we can provide data in formats which are compatible with third party document management, HR, ERP and CRM systems.
Once scanned, most of our clients will request the data to be supplied on a CD, USB, Hard-drive, FTP or via our managed Pearl Cloud system. The scanned PDF files can also be copied over onto your local network share or a server for an easy documents access.
Once the scanning process is completed and data has been delivered, the original documents can be shredded in accordance with the BSI standards. Documents are only shredded upon client’s approval and after an agreed period of time. However, if the shredding is not required, we can either return or store the documents for a longer period.
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is the process to convert non-searchable images to searchable ones, such as text searchable PDFs also known as content searchable documents. OCR greatly reduces the time spent to find documents while providing flexible document search & retrieval functionality.
Documents which are no longer accessed on frequent basis but are required to be stored for either legal, statutory or compliance reasons can be confidentially scanned to digital format for a long term storage.
These days most of our clients are looking to go paper lite or even paperless and need us to collect and scan their documents on a regular basis which can be weekly, monthly or as required.
Historical documents that overtime have become fragile and deteriorated can be carefully scanned to digital format by our experienced team and preserved for life. We use our specialist equipment to digitise old documents and material.
Our document scanning facility has the current capacity to scan and process around 10 million documents per month. Our infrastructure allows us to manage the entire process from collection of documents to secure delivery of data in the most cost effective way.
Although we provide completely confidential scanning services, sometimes particular documents can not leave original premises – these can be scanned at your site by our experienced document scanning and processing team. We will set up our dedicated mobile scanning operation at your site providing you with additional peace of mind and data security.
