Do you work in Law? Do you often find yourself guilty of using too much paper? Could you benefit from having easily accessible documents?
Pearl Scan specialises in Legal Document Scanning for companies and individuals wishing to cut down on paper usage, document storage costs and time spent searching for documents.
Why would the Legal sector benefit from going digital?
In the legal sector, it may be required to keep legal documents for as long as 12 years. Through one client file alone, a huge amount of paper documents can be accumulated over twelve years, so it's easy to see why a lot of law firms pay to keep paperwork in storage facilities off-site. While this may seem like a sensible solution to keep on-site offices uncluttered, it is still pulling away a lot of money from the company budget each year. It could also take a long time to retrieve those files from the facilities when needed. Going digital can reduce those storage costs and increase efficiency in the office.
Let's Put Document Scanning in the Dock
Scanning your legal documents and implementing a digital document management system brings a lot of benefits to your office and workflow;
- When your documents are stored in digital format, you won't necessarily need to keep the hard copies which can be shredded and destroyed, removing the costs of off-site storage.
- Any files usually kept on-site can also be removed, freeing up space that can then be used more effectively or rented out.
- Without files and boxes lying around, your office can show it is more health and safety aware.
- With a digital document management system, you can access files and documents much quicker than you would if you had to request them from a storage facility.
- The digital document management system, if set up correctly, can increase office efficiency and speed of business.
- When office efficiency is boosted, so is staff morale and that can only be a good thing.

Collection of your legal documents
With our fast and secure collection service, we can pick up your documents from anywhere in mainland UK the same, or next day, as required. We can also supply A3 size boxes to hold your documents if needed.
To ensure that your documents are safe to be scanned, we sort through them making sure to remove all fasteners such as paperclips and staples. This ensures a smooth and accurate scanning process takes place and makes for better quality scans.
