Our services

We used to have a whole load of waffle here like so many others. We even confused ourselves about what we actually did

The simple truth is this

We specialise in bulk scanning for solicitors, IFA’s and accountants. You end up with data you can search upon and back up. It’s not complicated, but it’s very effective.

A typical sized job for us is about 500 standard archive boxes worth of paper files. We send a clean branded van with a couple of our chaps to collect about 150 boxes at a time. So typically, we’d do 3 or 4 collections over a number of weeks or months. Or if you’d just like all of your boxes taken away that’s absolutely fine – we can then scan as quickly as we can or we can do a certain amount per month for you. Incidentally, the guys who pack and collect boxes, they also work in our scanning team when they’re not collecting – so you can chat through the specifics of what needs doing and they’ll get the plot.

We also run another website called Tradescanners.  We set up Tradescanners about 15 years ago and it became the number one website in the UK specialising in just scanners. We’re told by our customers they chose us because we knew what we were talking about and because we cared, which is what we’re all about. Our team can advise on which scanner is best for you and we offer full technical support in house. Our knowledge in the scanning world is very extensive, pretty sad isn’t it, but it can come in useful.

Finally, we sell and support Virtual Cabinet document management software. If you’d like to know more about VC as we call it, please just get in touch and we’ll arrange a demo for you.

Unfortunately we don’t build space rockets, but we love what we do

Some of our lovely customer comments

We contacted Efile to ask their opinion on costs and procedure to scan 16 filing cabinets to free up some much needed space and enable us to hold the related client information electronically. We received excellent advice and service with their team visiting our offices to collect the files, making an accurate inventory and removing the data to their offices for scanning. We were kept fully informed at various stages of the process and given full and immediate access to any of the files if the need arose. Once the data was scanned we were even supported to integrate the electronic files back into our client management system. We randomly compared and inspected the quality of the scanning which we found to be meticulously accurate. It took us a long time to make the decision to scan largely because we kept procrastinating and worrying about the cost and process and we now wish we’d acted sooner…well done Efile for the quality of the work and your support along the way, we now have a fully refurbished ground floor office with client meeting rooms and well organised, easy to access client data!

Thanks to the Superb Service from E File we no longer pay for storage each month and the best part is we can find anything from our PCs rather than files going missing every 5 minutes, would highly recommend to anyone.

Helen Beckwith

E file assisted us freeing up vital space in the office with the scanning of all our paper files. The search system is easy to use and very effective rather than sorting through pages and pages of papers in a file. I cannot recommend highly enough the service we received from start of the process through to the finish. Files were collected and dealt with promptly, the team liaised with me every step of the process to ensure we were happy with the work being carried out

Anette Hinder

I experienced excellent service from E File. The results were just what we needed and the team were courteous and quick to meet our particular needs. Recommend them highly for turning mixed files into searchable pdfs in a short time and for a very competitive cost.

David Schreiber

Converting our paper filing system to electronic scanned files has had such a positive impact on our efficiency and productivity, saving our staff time and freeing up valuable office space. The service from E File has always been excellent

I wish had found Efile years ago. What a difference it made getting rid of all the paper files and how simple they made. Thoroughly recommend them.
