The Filing Plus Group Plc

The Filing Plus Group Plc provides document scanning, relocation, archiving, consultancy services and record management solutions for a wide range of clients. Based in the financial heart of London, Filing Plus operate predominantly in the UK, though it has recently completed projects in both Frankfurt and Tokyo and is currently undertaking a series of projects across Europe. Now in its eighth year of business, Filing Plus has recently invested in a Colortrac SmartLF large format scanner.


Ryan Heiser, IT Manager and IT Analyst at the Filing Plus Group, explains, “We could not justify the cost of a wide format scanner. We just did not have the volume. However, as demand increased and scanner prices fell, we felt that we should look again.” He continues, “We did our research and found that the Colortrac SmartLF met our needs. Not only that, but Colortrac was the only company that could supply a driver designed to meet our needs for an A0 Scanner.”

Quicker turn-round for clients

Ryan points out, “We chose a SmartLF for color and mono documents up to 44 inches wide.” He adds, “Our clients now get a quick turn round. Any quality issues can be resolved immediately in-house and we can then send the corrected document by e-mail or CD to the client.”

In a class of their own

Ryan found the whole experience with Colortrac to be, “… great. The sales and after sales experience was painless and went smoothly. On this front they are in a class of their own. Colortrac’s website was very informative and their partner even phoned me after installation to make sure we were happy.” He adds, “We use our scanner at least three days a week, sometimes more.” Ryan is impressed and says, “The SmartLF is sturdy, nice looking, image quality is great and we expect it to pay for itself in just over a year.” He concludes, “If you are looking at an entry level A0 scanner I would definitely recommend the SmartLF.”
