Where required, we collect documents in their existing format and transport them via a dedicated vehicle to our secure bureau for scanning.

SDS’s document management software allows customers to scan paper records into the system from their offices. Alternatively, SDS can manage this by scanning large back logs of records and making them available online or via CD/DVD.
