We engaged the services of Datascan in 2011 to collate, catalogue and automate electronically all our paper files requiring storage and retrieval. As we work with sensitive data we needed to be confident that all aspects of this project were managed accordingly.

We trusted Datascan professionalism and their determination to meet all our business needs and we were not disappointed. From the initial discussions on how this project was to be managed, we found all their staff to be fully engaged, professional, consistent and knowledgeable.

We continue to use their services to date and find they provide a high level of professionalism and efficiency and experience a prompt response to our business needs.

We have no hesitation in highly recommending their services.
