Cleardata invests in production to digitise 18 million documents for Virgin Care

Two new business wins with a combined value of £1 million, including a contract to digitise 18 million documents for Virgin Care, prompted Cleardata to boost its production armoury and invest in two new Kodak i5850S Scanners.

Cleardata is the largest single-site user of Kodak Alaris scanners in the UK. The scanning bureau, which is one of the biggest in the country, captures over four million images per month on behalf of its nationwide client base.

Four years ago, Cleardata was the first UK company to take delivery of the Kodak i5000 Series and it was also the first to order two i5850S Scanners pre-launch. “Our rolling investment strategy designed to deliver additional capability and improve productivity has paid dividends over the years,” said Managing Director David Bryce. “In a market where margins are tight and the ability to provide value-add specialist services and capabilities is key, we see our commitment to purchasing the very latest technology as a key differentiator.

Cleardata has grown organically, the company recorded a 22 per cent turnover increase last year and is on track to grow revenues by one-third this year. It has continued to invest in Kodak Alaris’ technology to deliver the extra capacity required to manage and support this growth trajectory. Fast speeds, reliability and superb quality combined, ensures that Cleardata continuously meets customer Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

“One of the key drivers behind this latest investment was a new contract to digitise some 18 million documents for Virgin Care. With the new scanners, we will easily power through that,” Bryce said.

“In our business, we need to ensure we have the right hardware, software and manpower in place. With Kodak Alaris as a technology partner, our business is future-proofed; as a single-vendor bureau, we have optimised our in-house resource via a single user interface, common look and feel and one software solution, making it easy for staff to move from device to device without the requirement to re-train,” Bryce said in conclusion.
