Document Scanning Birmingham

Topwood offers scanning in the Birmingham and West Midlands area on a regular basis providing a start to finish scanning process. With GDPR now in force it is more important for organisations to know exactly what information they have stored and where. Bulk scanning makes the process of finding documents easy and quick through our OCR searchable feature. This is important as a quick response time for Subject Access Requests is a new requirement of GDPR.

Data Retention is also made easier through the right software. We store your scanned files in the Cloud, making them accessible 24/7. Data retention schedules can be set and automatic rules can be applied in order to stay compliant with GDPR.

Calculate your scanning costs with our scanning calculator.

We are regularly in Birmingham, so if you need an emergency shredding service we can respond quickly.

Thank you so much for arranging this all at such short notice, I am very grateful for such excellent service from you. Apologies that the collection was much smaller than anticipated but once the paperwork was checked there was more that needed to be kept than destroyed.
