Scan on demand benefits

Saved office space 

Removing those filing cabinets in your office whilst having the ability to access any document required within a couple of hours means you can have the best of both worlds! 


Scan on demand is the perfect solution for those businesses looking to implement a more digital way of working, but don't have the budget available to digitise the complete archive. Essentially you're only paying to digitise individual files/boxes as and when you require access to them! 


Give your paper records better protection against fire and flood risks by choosing Storetec as your document storage provider. Our facilities are complete with high-security measures such as 24/7 CCTV, restricted building access controls and monitored fire alarms. 

Archive storage security 

All storage centres are located within a 6-mile radius to the main scanning bureau and have been designed to give your paper archive the best possible security and protection with:

  • Restricted building access controls
  • Internal and external CCTV
  • Monitored fire and intruder alarms
  • Triple walled secure archive boxes
  • Perimeter fencing
  • Specialist climate control features
  • Live barcode tracking system (i-Trac)
