Cut your costs

When cost cutting is the order of the day, every day, you need to find savings. And some local councils are managing to reduce their overheads through migrating to electronic document management.

What we’ve done

We’ve helped council departments across the land to scale back the number of their employees whilst actually increasing productivity. Housing departments, planning offices, HR services and election offices and more have all benefited from adopting this new technology.


How we do it

By transferring paper files to digital format with our help, they’ve been able to access, share, and progress documents much more quickly, reducing turnaround times by weeks. It’s been great for morale, and improved their reputation by providing the public with a more efficient, attentive service.

How it works

Correspondence can be scanned and filed, according to set protocols, and management too have access to details on their terms, from wherever they choose to be. And if you’re one of the numerous Councils still using Scanfile, we fully support this facility and can help by upgrading your departments to the latest versions.


Talk to us today!

It’s worth a conversation with us to discuss your current challenges, chances are our technology can make a huge improvement and help you meet your cost cutting targets.

For an example of how we helped one housing department managing 20,000 tenancies read our blog here. They were delighted with the results and the speed and ease with which they were up and running.



Does your council use Scanfile ? Did you know Scanfile is still supported ? We have a number of local government clients who use Scanfile in various different departments. If you are upgrading servers or PC’s to Windows 7 and 8 or were wondering whether Scanfile will work on 64bit or VM’s then give us a call. We can help upgrade you to the latest versions and get you back on support.

If you have almost retired Scanfile and want to export the documents, we can help with that as well. Just give us a call on 0207 084 5738


Housing department rolls out FileDirector

One of our clients is a large city council along the south coast. They have over 20,000 tenancies supported by several local housing offices and wanted to save money by rationalising office space.

We have helped by providing a robust document management system that allows easy access to all tenancy and application files with easy day to day scanning on the MFP’s.

We have also provided the back scanning of tenancy files and application files helping this council move to a paper-less environment.

If you work in projects relating to housing we would love to share their good practice with you. Just call Martin Peirce on 01225 913140 to find out more.
