Embrace the future and protect the past


Paperwork plays an important role in many industries.

But to improve security, storage, collaboration, and sustainability – digitisation has an even bigger part to play.

The scanning services – along with the hardware and solutions technologies we supply – make it possible to digitise large volumes of historic and ongoing paper records to create a secure and compliant electronic archive. Easy to search and access, this allows for greater remote collaboration and connectivity with other systems, people, and places.

Partnering with the planet

From paperwork to protecting your digital archives, every step of our scanning projects are carried out with sustainability front of mind.


Analogue heritage, digital future

We’re a pre-digital company – so we understand the challenges of moving to electronic records – and we bring our own experience of managing it at-scale for ourselves and hundreds of clients.


Manage legacy information and comply with regulations

Every sector and business has its own rules to follow and will need certain services on hand, including collection, preparation, scanning, presentation, destruction, and return.

We can also supply scanning hardware and capture software to clients who need added privacy and security to carry out the tasks themselves. We’ve got the five common challenges of procuring scanning services covered.


Finding a reliable provider, with the necessary experience, expertise, and equipment.


Ensuring the quality of the scans and accuracy of any OCR or data entry services.


Trusting the robustness of the process for data storage and transfer.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.

Scanning is showing no signs of slowing down.

Demand for digitised documents is rising as we strive for greater productivity and hybrid working. At the same time, scanning services are broadening to include document conversion, data entry, and cloud document management.

While efficiency demands are driving the growth of automated document scanning and cloud usage, there’s also an increased focus on security.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery processes demand more digitisation to secure sensitive data.

As a result, industry analysts are predicting that the document scanning services market will grow at between 7% and 10% each year and will have a global value of approximately $6 billion by the end of the decade.

our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
