We have extensive experience working with organisations who have developed corporate HR document management strategies. Our HR scanning solutions are developed with that in mind – we can assist to integrate the scanned data with any third-party HR system, such as Octopus, Cascade, CIPHR and Microsoft SharePoint etc. to ensure continuous and efficient electronic employee management.


Our HR document processing facility has been custom built around security and confidentiality of data, accredited to ISO 27001, ISO 9001, Cyber Security Essentials and PCI certification. Our scanning bureau is equipped with the state of the art 24/7 CCTV security and Red-Care systems. The site is also monitored by professional security personnel and all our staff members have been vetted through a rigorous screening process.

OCR Processing

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) enables HR documents to be presented in a searchable format, such as PDF searchable. This helps the users to locate documents within an employee file by using keywords and content search which in result reduces significant document retrieval time and improves overall efficiency of your HR department.

Document Shredding

Once the scanning process is completed and data has been delivered, the original HR 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 your HR files for a longer period of time.

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