Plan Scanning

Large format scanning

DataSpace are able to save your images in the format you require, whether that is TIF, PDF, PDF-A or JPG. A full scanning log would be completed for each document imaged, detailing the scanning machine utilised, scanner operator, and details of documents for example whether the document was in a fragile condition.



DataSpace are able to index your documents to one field or to multiple fields of indexing as per your requirements. You might require your documents to be indexed by name, number, date, address, model, title, batch, or product.

All indexing can be manually completed by our scanning operators and administrators. Alternatively our IT professionals are able to assist if you have multiple fields of index data already stored in a digital format – for example csv or xls.
