Large Format Scanning Benefits

Free up valuable space

With our document scanning and digitisation expertise, you can unlock your valuable, revenue-generating office space by converting physical paper documents into digital searchable records. Say goodbye to filing cabinets, portfolio cases and cluttered paper storage.

Securely protect your information

Store wide and large format documents securely in the cloud with controlled access levels and fully auditable traceability. Reduce the risk of document loss, damage or theft. Simplify regulatory compliance through improved access to information.

Centralise access

Bring all of your information together in one place - ingest documents from other locations, such as other cloud repositories, enterprise content management systems (ECMs) and file shares - for enhanced visibility, collaboration and access.

Digitise specialist documents

Digitise plans, drawings, maps and more with our state-of-the-art large format scanners. We can scan any quality originals on vellum, paper, transparency or any other paper type. From A3, A2, A1 or A0 sized scanning to even larger and custom size documents.

How it works


Documents are packed and collected from your location via tracked, unliveried vehicles. For large-scale, multi-site projects, a collection schedule will be arranged.


On arrival, documents are booked onto internal tracking systems, then each document is manually prepared for scanning by sorting, removal of paperclips and staples.


Documents are scanned in B&W or colour to your preferred format, with OCR if required. They are then indexed and structured as per your requirements.


Electronic documents are returned to you via cloud portal access, integrated with your document management system, SFTP or encrypted hard drive.
