Company Overview

Company Overview


We are one of the largest providers of confidential scanning services to the NHS and Local Government and have the experience, capacity, technology and skills necessary to help every organisation save time, money and go paperless.

Digital Mailroom by Hugh Symons builds on and extends this service provided to UK companies in every sector with high-quality mailroom document capture and indexing services.



Founded in 1974 on the south coast, we started out initially providing a microfilm service to companies looking for more efficient ways to manage their information. In the early 1990s, we saw that digital workflows were the future and began to explore the opportunities and available technology.


This commitment to embracing innovation and investing in our business and people, meant we were one of the very first British companies to see the potential of electronic document management, and in 1993 we shifted operations and purchased our first high volume document scanners.
