Archive Scanning

Document Imaging Services

As business life becomes more and more bureaucratic our offices are filling up with paper, taking up valuable space. The problem is that in a lot of cases we have to retain the information held on that paper, so what do we do? We store it. Expensive and not very accessible.

Now that a lot of scanned data is admissible in court more and more businesses are scanning that archive of paper. Making it far more accessible and freeing up the space for more profitable uses. At Scanning Direct we specialise in document archiving ranging in paper size from A6 to A0.

Archive scanning projects can range in size from a few boxes to 100's, but no matter the size you can expect the same high levels of quality and service from all of our staff. Throughout the scanning process spot checks are made to ensure that a high level of quality is maintained. We delete blank pages and turn documents as part of our service, which many companies charge extra for. Once the indexing has been finished and the files are complete a thorough quality control process guarantees to produce the best possible results.

Secure Confidential Destruction

The life cycle of every document is generally; creation to active to archive to deep storage to eventual destruction. Once your paper has been scanned we can arrange for your documents to be securely and confidentially destroyed. We recommend incineration, it has a very irretrievable feeling of ultimate secure destruction.


As an alternative green option, we also offer secure shredding with recycling. Both options have a certificate of destruction that will be issued for your records. For further details on Confidential Secure Destruction

Colour Scanning

In most cases it is not necessary to scan documents in colour as black & white is quite sufficient. However there are documents i.e. reports, brochures, drawings, presentation and photographs and would make no sense unless they are scanned in colour. As part of our service we pay attention to the documents scanned and make sure that any that need the benefit of colour are scanned accordingly.
