Architects & Town Planners

Traditionally, the best way to retain planning application records was to store them on microfiche. While this method still works, as technology moves forward it does not support current business processes, and can in fact hinder efficiency, by wasting valuable resources.

With the increased use of electronic management systems, streamlined working methods and estate optimisation, many government local authorities are looking to update their business processes by enabling staff and members of the public to access and share planning information remotely.

Councils, architects and town planners can make significant savings by switching to scanning and digitally storing all their records. As well as processing the historical backlog, the ongoing regular scanning to digital format can bring in huge cost savings for each department.

SDS Scanning are able to manage paper documents, plans, ordnance surveys, books, minutes of meeting, registers, newspapers and daily mail of all sizes.
