Digital Document Storage & Retrieval

The paperless office has become a reality.  A reputable copier dealer can demonstrate how simple, cost effective and time efficient it is to introduce a digital document management into your business. By utilising the combined facilities, knowledge base and advanced technical facilities available through your supplier, office based computer hub and the advanced office technology printing systems on the market today, professional suppliers are able to bring you some of the most reliable and efficient digital document storage and retrieval systems available to any size of business.


Scanning, archive and retrieval systems have been viewed by some businesses as a 'dark art' or at least with some doubt and suspicion in the past, where poor experiences of older and less stable systems have caused problems with document retrieval.  By combining the facilities which todays advanced technology and equipment can bring to your office, you need never lose a document again, as these advanced systems will indeed allow you to find that illusive "needle in the haystack".

Archive and Workflow Management Systems

Office workers spend at least 5% of their time (about 72 hours a year) looking for bits of paper, and now there’s no need. The rapid scanning, auto-indexing, digital filing systems will deal with emails, images and all file types; they engage perfectly with multifunctional office devices and your business IT system, and will track and manage every document from the moment it enters the business. Archive securely, search and retrieve electronically, with paper copies only if they’re needed. Fast, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally green.
