The Restore difference

The business is built through long-term partnerships, where small one-off scanning projects are developed into long term, digital transformation journeys. With dedicated service delivery, project management and customer services teams, the 500+ customers are not only spending more year on year, but being introduced to our wider Group services, and turning to Restore Digital’s higher margin, annuity based services such as electronic document management systems and digital mailroom.

Mark Horrocks
Managing Director, Restore Digital

Digital business strategy

Having expanded rapidly to number one in the market place, Restore Digital aims to continue to grow through: strategic acquisition that enhances our product offering; organic growth in highly confidential and specialised scanning which is higher margin than traditional scanning projects; organic growth in annuity-based, higher-margin services like digital mailroom, cloud-based electronic document management systems and robotics.

As scale increases, margins will expand as scale offers the opportunity for processing efficiency, especially for commodity scanning projects, and higher returns on central investment costs.

The Digital business also acts as a good retention tool for our other businesses. Digital transformation is a key part of most organisations’ business strategy. Other businesses at Restore use digital transformation to make their proposition more compelling and meaningful than competitors. Therefore, by introducing Restore Digital services, their own services become stickier.

Our growth drivers

Hybrid working accelerating move to digitisation and automation

NHS drive to digitise GP records, where Restore are the number one scanning partner in England

Demand for cloud-based systems increasing – with audit trail and compliance key

GDPR and data protection, with growing trend to maximise data strategies

Case Study
HMRC mailroom, UK Government

5-6 million mailroom items scanned every month

HMRC’s digital mailroom now processes over 35,000 mail items per day within service level agreements’s of 36 to 48 hours. In total, it handles 5-6m scanned images per month. The partnership has resulted in up to 95% automatic classification of document type, subject matter, and ID of customer. This enables ‘correct routing’ of mail to the nominated recipient within HMRC without the need of manual intervention.
