Bulk Document Scanning Services

With our bulk document scanning service, we collect and convert all your documents into electronic files and create a complete archiving solution for a paperless way of working.

Mass scanning of documents frees up space at your site and saves you money with ongoing storage costs, as all paper is made redundant. You get fast, desktop access to any of your files, as well as the security of having them saved online in a password-protected digital environment. If you prefer, all scanned files can also be accessed via an external media device or shared network.

Unlike some bulk scanning companies, we provide an end-to-end service and a cloud-based digital document storage system, enabling you to access documents whenever and wherever they are required.

Document Scanning FAQs

Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions that clients ask about our document scanning services. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for here, don’t worry – just get in touch.

What sort of document scanning equipment do you use?

Whilst smaller scanning companies often rely on desktop scanners, we use the latest high-volume production scanners for faster, more efficient processing and significantly clearer, enhanced images.

Utilising state-of-the-art optical character recognition (OCR) technology, we’re able to extract data, barcodes or handwriting. Our image enhancement process also ensures unrivalled image quality, allowing us to remove speckles, hole punch marks and other unwanted features as standard.

For more information, take a look at our technology documentation.

Which types of documents do you scan?

Our equipment is capable of scanning documents of any size ranging from till receipts right up to A0 pages. Types of paperwork we scan include general office documents, invoices and purchase orders, company accounts, surveys and questionnaires, name and address reply slips, coupons, cheques, receipts, courier documents, photographs and letters.

How can I access my files once they have been scanned?

We offer a comprehensive range of options when it comes to accessing your files as part of our digital scanning service, ensuring that the entire process is as easy and convenient as possible.

Once your documents have been scanned and converted into a digital format, you’ll be able to access them via email, online network server, USB drive, mailbox, secure FTP or direct to you (SMB or FTP).

Is it possible to scan in my own documents?

Yes – you can scan in your own documents using ‘SDS Box’ (our bespoke document management system). This platform allows you to scan documents straight into our system from your site or office, making it ideal for uploading important documentation in between scheduled collections.

How much does document scanning cost?

The price of document scanning depends on which service you opt for and how many files you need digitising. For large-scale, recurring projects, our bulk document scanning service is the most cost-effective option; if your business needs a smaller volume of documents scanning, we also offer a scan on-demand package that works on a pay-as-you-go basis.
