Our own records-management software, is a simple, affordable web-based system that lets you quickly locate, view and manage your electronic documents, wherever you are in the world.

Among its clever features, the system lets you apply one set of policies to govern access rights, retention periods and destruction protocols, regardless of where the information is stored. This lets you find records faster, reduces the risk of non-compliance and helps lower storage costs.

Hosted in a secure data centre, it’s governed by EU data protection laws and meets ISO 27001 (Information Security Standard) requirements. Our UK servers are backed up daily. In addition, our servers are backed up at multiple locations, meaning that if one goes down, your data will still be available from a backup location within 10 minutes.

It’s impossible to make data disappear from the software database, so we can assure you that when you trust SDS Document Storage to store your data, it won’t ever be lost.

"SDS have provided a reliable, fail proof, business disaster recovery plan for student documents and other important archives. I was worried the cost would be out of our comfort zone but actually with a business plan put in place – the cost was manageable and is now much more effective. SDS have given us the ability to convert paper documents to electronic files, making our storage and accessibility much more manageable, convenient and cost effective. Shredall and SDS have provided us with many options to digitize, store and confidentially destroy our rooms full of archive storage. Document’s never getting misplaced like they used to and rooms that were full of archive boxes are now used as classrooms and a staffroom.”
