Scanning and Storage
The requirement to store large volumes of documentation for legal reasons creates problems with storage. In most businesses, after an account is closed there are still boxes of paperwork to do with accounts that have to be kept. Scanning solutions offer saving on storage and provide easier and quicker solutions to finding data if needed. An outsourced scanning bureau solution further reduced the costs and issues since storage can be provided for a simple monthly charge. This type of solution may be labour intensive up front but ensures low ongoing costs to the business.
This type of service is especially important to companies such as Insolvency Practitioners or Accountants where there is a legal requirement to store documents for extended periods. Also for industries such as production control where it is a legal requirement to store quality records for 30 years.
