1 - Collection

We will pack and collect your archive files from your storage facility through our internally managed fleet of tracked vehicles. For large-scale projects, a collection schedule will be arranged to suit your diary.

2 - Preparation

On arrival, all archive boxes are booked onto our internal tracking system and transferred to production where each document is manually prepared for scanning (removal of paperclips & staples).

Our experienced technicians will scan your archive files in B&W or colour, exporting the digital image to your preferred format (e.g.PDF). Electronic records will also be indexed and structured to suit your requirements.

Electronic documents are uploaded to cloud archive software, enabling flexible, remote access and effective document management. Alternatively, you can choose access via SFTP or an encrypted hard-drive.

Access your digital archive within seconds

Archives are typically stored for one main reason... because legally, you have to keep the documents for several years. This used to mean storing pallets of boxes with third-party companies and paying expensive ongoing storage costs, but with our digital archiving solution, you can remove paper from the equation completely.

24/7, remote access to archive files

With our digital archive solution, you can review the archive within a structured electronic database and run quick searches to access specific documents or pages within a matter of seconds. Not only will this enable effective document management and GDPR compliance, but will free up employee resources and reduce ongoing costs. It's a win, win!
