What can you expect?

Free consultation

We will carry out a thorough evaluation of the documentation to be scanned, advising you on the best method to use in order to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Prior to each project, you will be provided with a full proposal detailing the process, project timescales, output strategy and what will happen to the documents upon project completion.

Boxes barcoded on collection

We take the role of security and traceability very seriously. We are the only scanning company offering complete traceability of documentation. You will receive unique barcodes that are affixed to each container and scanned at every stage of the process; from collection, through to destruction or return

Collection & delivery service

Using our own fleet of vehicles, we carry out collections and deliveries on a national and occasionally international basis. All of our vehicles are equipped with the very latest tracking and barcoding technology.

Preparation, scan & process

We will prepare the documents for scanning; removing paper clips, staples etc. to ensure the highest possible quality of scanned documentation. We only use the very best high-end production scanners.

Quality check

The latest technology is used for all of our scanning projects – and for double assurance, we will also carry out a complete quality check to ensure that you are receiving the best possible quality.

We will now send the information back to you. This can be done in several ways, however, due to our ISO27001 compliance, we recommend our SFTP – Secure File Transfer Protocol.

Return, store or confidentially destroy

Following a scanning project, we can store your documentation in our purpose-built document storage facility, confidentially destroy the documents or return them back to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How best to Scan Large Volume of Documents?

    Remember, efficiency and organisation are vital components to scan a document stack. Here are some best practices:

    1. High-Speed Professional-Grade Scanner: purchased to enable inhouse production
      • Automatic Document Feeders (ADFs): These help with scanning multiple pages in a document, which otherwise would take longer if done manually. There is a belief that doing large volumes of scanning can be completed more cost effectively if don by an inhouse Team, a  recent study by Dajon Data Management discovered it was more than 3 times more expensive to scan inhouse than to outsource the project to a professional digitisation company, when taking in all the real costs to complete the project.
    2. Options for Professional Scanning Services:
      • They are up to date with technology and combined with highly experienced personnel, scanning is done speedily and accurately. They can handle any kind of document size, no matter how large or even fragile documents that standard equipment might spoil.
  • How Long Does It Take to Scan 1000 Pages?

    Time to scan 1000 pages depends on:

    1. Type and Speed of Scanner:
      • A high-speed document scanner usually has a speed range of 25 to 250 pages per minute (ppm), so it will probably take 20 to 40 minutes for 1000 pages.
    2. Preparation and Post-Processing:
      • Preparing and organising the documents and post-activities like filing, organising, and quality checks are additional and not included in the scanning time.

    This task can be done by hiring professional scanning services. Most have better equipment and experienced personnel in this area.

  • How to Digitise Paper Documents?

    Some of the most important steps in the digitisation process for paper documents:

    1. Preparation:
      • Sort through all records in good condition and sort them into categories or by type; remove staples, paper clips, etc.
    2. Scanning:
      • Use quality scanners, including efficient high-speed document scanners, particularly for ADF bulk scanning.
    3. OCR Processing:
      • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) makes scanned documents both editable and searchable.
    4. File Organisation:
      • Give the scanned documents meaningful file names and maintain a logical structure in the set of folders.
    5. Backup and Storage:
      • Protect digital documents, ideally with backup copies, using cloud storage services that are accessible and reliable.
  • How Bulk Scanning Works

    Bulk scanning incorporates the following steps for digitising large quantities of documents within the shortest time possible:

    1. Document Preparation: Remove binding materials and separate documents into easily scanned batches to prevent scanner machine feeding difficulty, paper jamming, or breaking.
    2. High-Speed Scanning: Use high-speed scanners with ADF that can process documents in bulk, making the scanning process very fast.
    3. Quality Control: Review digital images for quality and correct any pages that are lacking or have poor scans.
    4. OCR Processing: Use Optical Character Recognition to convert scanned document images into searchable and editable text.
    5. File Management: Organise the files logically; scan them under a relevant name with metadata so they can be managed and retrieved easily.
    6. Storage and Backup: Secure digital document storage using state-of-the-art technologies. That’s why people prefer cloud storage—easy access and very reliable.
