We scan and digitise drawings, maps and plans up to and larger than A0 size. If you have a collection or archive of large format plans, we will work with you to scan and index them to your exact requirements.

Benefits of Large Format Scanning:

1. Free up office space:
Drawing cabinets, particularly plan chests, take up much space while containing relatively few drawings. Make this space available to your workforce by digitising drawings and plans.

2. Improve search and access times:
Scanned drawings can be indexed by multiple references and stored on a database on your network or in the cloud. This means that your staff can access drawings quickly from any location with network or internet access.

3. Increase portability:
Scanned images can be emailed or printed on any network connected wide format printer. Many of our clients use portables devices and tablets to access thousands of drawings that we have scanned. Our popular, secure, cloud-based systems accommodate additional drawings, updates and revisions. CAD files and Microsoft documents can be integrated and displayed in their native format. Network systems can also be kept up to date by synchronising using docking stations. Most of our clients, however, have now moved to our cloud-based system.
