Some documents contain information which is so valuable that their loss could threaten business continuity, result in litigation and damage the reputation of a company.

To prevent this the simplest way is to make a copy – we will scan the documents on your behalf and host the electronic copies on our secure, off site data storage system while retaining the originals. Alternatively, if you simply need to retrieve information from your paper archive quickly, you can use our scan on demand service. All you need to do is tell us which document you need and we will retrieve it, scan it and post it to a secure location on either your server or ours.

Case Study Panasonic Manufacturing UK Ltd CASE STUDY

“It was felt that PHS Recordsmanagment demonstrated a level of professionalism not seen in other suppliers” David Jones, Executive Design Engineer

The Brief Panasonic Manufacturing UK Ltd faced many challenges after making the tough decision to move some operations away from its TV Design Centre in South Wales. The company had created over a decade’s worth of technical information, many concerning thousands of products, as well as over 200,000 sheets of technical data, and the preservation of these documents was legally required as well as being vital for providing customers with technical support.

The Solution PHS Recordsmanagment was recruited to complete a confidential scanning service to accurately conserve these papers within the required strict time deadline. With just 6 weeks to complete the project, PHS Recordsmanagment brought in a security-vetted team to a special scanning suite on site at Panasonic Manufacturing UK. They were tasked with not only electronically imaging the documents but also indexing each individual file. Initially, the documents were separated into sections using barcodes. These would be later read by the software to automatically produce indices as the files were scanned. To ensure everything was copied only once, specially written operating procedures were devised, tracking every document while it was in PHS Recordsmanagment’s possession,

minimising operator error and saving time. This painstaking methodical approach added extra security and also enabled the team to trace back and rectify any defective images attributed to a particular scanning machine.

The Result Once all of the material was securely stored electronically, it was important to Panasonic Manufacturing UK that the original papers were destroyed prior to the plant closure as they could not risk documents being found at landfill sites. By utilising the mobile shredding facilities of PHS Datashred, PHS Recordsmanagment was able to provide a full “cradle to grave” service, ensuring that items were confidentially shredded and appropriately recycled.
