Why is Professional Document Management the perfect partner for your paper efficient office?

Because we provide an expert professional document scanning service, and our clients know that they can trust us with their highly valued documents, privacy, deadlines along with the production of quality digital images.


So, what is the benefit to my organisation?

The cost of Premium Office Space

All those full shelves and filing cabinets of archived paperwork occupy valuable and expensive office space. Scanning returns this space so it can be used more productively.

Wasted time of manual Document Retrieval

No more trips to the filing room in the hope of finding specific documents.

The accurate indexing of digital files alongside the use of OCR, means that documents can be found quickly. They can be searched by document title or using a keyword search meaning you can retrieve what you need when you need it, quickly and efficiently.

Data Protection

Data protection is of the upmost importance and our systems are GDPR compliant.

Our scanning service is fully compliant to BIP 0009:2008 Scanning Standards.

All data transfers across the web are end to end encrypted and where media is provided, it is in a robust encrypted format.

Disaster Recovery

Our scanning service allows you to manage risk.

Unfortunately, the unthinkable does happen and the storing of hard copy documents leaves them at risk of getting irreplaceably damaged due to damp, flood and fire.

Scanning ensures that your documents and the valuable information they hold are protected.

Why Outsource with PDM?

All businesses need to ensure that their staff members are being used to get the best results from their skill set.

Using our comprehensive document scanning service takes care of the whole process…

We collect, prepare and scan the documents.

We check each image for quality.

We name the digital files accurately to your specifications.

We return the digital files in real time using our secure web facility or by encrypted media.

Finally, we securely destroy the original documents or return them.

All scanning is completed within agreed time frames.

Outsourcing your paper archive will allow your staff to avoid the frustration of battling with unsuitable equipment and unrealistic timescales. They can focus on the tasks they are employed and trained to do.

New Year – new approach to document management

Make 2019 the year you streamline your document management systems

The start of a new year is traditionally the time when we make resolutions for the year ahead. This year, rather than setting yourself the usual challenges of getting more exercise or cutting back on cakes and biscuits, why not focus upon improving the way you manage your businesses documents?

A streamlined document management system can offer a huge range of benefits, not least being able to find documents when you need them! Document management is so much more than a tidy office and when done efficiently, could help you save significant amounts of time and money. Here are just a few examples of how improving your approach to document management could help:

  1. Whilst a tidy office is just one benefit of efficient document management, it’s important not to underestimate the power of de-cluttering! A tidy office looks professional and goes a long way towards helping to boost the image of a business. In addition, there’s nothing worse than mounds of unfiled paperwork which has to be sorted through by hand to find information. The most effective way to resolve these problems is by switching to a digital document system which isn’t as difficult as it sounds. Documents are scanned using powerful high resolution scanners, before being converted into a digital format designed to be stored electronically. Digital documents can be searched in seconds and scanning is suitable for all types of documents; from architectural plans and invoices, through to historical archives, legal documents and medical records.
  2. Digital document management offers an unbeatable way to improve efficiency as rather than wasting time searching paperwork, documents can be searched at the touch of a button. This improvement in efficiency enables teams to get on with their jobs, enabling them to complete work quickly and meet important deadlines.
  3. Paper documents are highly susceptible to loss and damage – for the majority of businesses the loss of all paperwork in a fire or flood would be devastating. The safest solution is to store information online rather than in a filling cabinet! Online document storage is highly secure and information can be assessed as and when you need it, regardless of where you are.

Here at PDM we offer a range of cost-effective document management and storage solutions, designed to offer businesses and organisations of all sizes an efficient way to store, organise and retrieve information. If you would like to find out more about how can help you make the move to digital document storage, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling 01274 883459 or email
