Phew! Scancapture saves paper!
Concern Worldwide’s London office has been successfully relocated after a fire devastated their premises in Battersea. Scanning company, Scancapture Ltd have been scanning and saving all of Concern’s Direct Debit Mandates and Gift Aid Declarations for the past few years on an-going basis and this has proved an extremely important benefit to Concern as it is feared the majority of paper documents have been lost in the fire.
Thousands of images are stored onto CD at Scancapture’s offices in Lancashire, which means that all donors’ details and the original, signed documentation is safe, secure and recoverable. All paper documentation can be displayed on computer screen by keying in a donor’s unique membership number, and printed out if necessary. Concern has been using Scancapture’s services since August 2003, as they scan and produce images of Concern’s Direct Debit Mandates and Gift Aid Declarations on an on-going basis.
Having everything backed up offsite saved Concern around £10 million. Phew!
