Do you need to be able to regularly access documents or records but are running out of physical space in which to store them? Here at PDM we have many years of experience in providing a secure and cost-effective document scanning service in Bradford. This service is designed to offer a practical solution to the problem of document storage, enabling easy access to the documents you need.

What is document scanning?

Document scanning is a process that converts physical documents into digital formats, making it easier to store, manage, and distribute information. Here in the UK, where businesses and organisations often deal with a large volume of paperwork, bulk scanning has become increasingly important. Bulk scanning is designed to handle thousands of documents at once, streamlining the digitisation process and making it more efficient. This is particularly beneficial for sectors like healthcare, legal services, education and finance, where large archives of records need to be accessed quickly and securely. In addition, it is important to bear in mind that under UK GDPR legislation, there is now a legal obligation to hold documents for as long as they are required.

The advantages of bulk scanning are manifold. Firstly, it significantly reduces the need for physical storage space, which can be costly and cumbersome. Secondly, digital documents are easier to search through, edit, and share, thus improving workflow and collaboration within an organisation. Moreover, digital files are less susceptible to damage or loss compared to their physical counterparts, offering an added layer of security. Bulk scanning services often come with features like Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which makes the text within the scanned documents searchable and editable. This is invaluable for businesses that need to extract and analyse data from large sets of documents.

Safeguarding Student Data and Beyond

Our partnership with numerous educational institutions across the UK has equipped us with the expertise to address the unique challenges of handling and preserving student data.

This not only enhances security but also allows institutions the flexibility to either store obsolete archives remotely or dispose of them securely.

Automated Data Collection

We recognise the challenges educational institutions face with manual data entry. Processing application forms and other documents can be a daunting task. However, our automated data capture service presents a swift, cost-effective alternative.
