Why Use Archive Scanning?

A bulk document scanning service allows you to keep your archived documents securely for a defined retention period, whilst freeing up storage space for more productive use.

Electronic documents can be accessed via any cloud based storage system which supports more flexible working practices including working from home.

Files scanned by Topwood can be sent back to the client electronically, sent simply on a hard drive, or can be hosted on our DocView Document Management System.

What are the Benefits of the Digitization of Records and Archives?

Topwood’s Archive Scanning Service guarantees 99.8% accuracy with all files scanned to PDFA standard which itself carries a 99 year guarantee against deterioration

Many organisations have their own cloud systems, allowing Topwood’s scanning services to help them maximise the return on investment they have already made.  Topwood can apply any indexing requirements as well as transferring files securely via SFTP links and/or API to any modern digital archiving system.

With GDPR now in force it is more important for organisations to know exactly what information they have stored and where. Bulk document scanning makes the process of finding documents easy and quick through our optical character recognition (OCR) searchable feature.

Digital Archiving has many other benefits including the ability to set reminders and automate retention of documents that can or should only be kept for certain periods.  This is especially useful for HR, Accounts and other regulated documents.
