Digitise your bound volumes & protect your collections!


Increasingly, organisations are incorporating the digital capture of their bound volume collections into their long-term plans and vision. 

These items are particularly vulnerable to damage or loss because of their often awkward size and nature. Poor handling can result in pressure being placed on the spine, as well as damage to the cover and pages. They are equally at risk of deterioration through improper storage or environmental disaster.

Digitisation remedies all of these issues by creating a permanent copy of your valuable items, safeguarding and preserving them for generations to come, and opening up all sorts of exciting options for online access.
