Worcestershire County Council serves the county of Worcestershire, with a population of around 600,000
Worcestershire is one of the fastest growing local economies in the country; the county is truly 'Open for Business' with many renowned and successful companies, great education (with 9 out of every 10 schools rated good or outstanding) and improving transport links and digital connectivity (with over 90% superfast broadband coverage) to regional, national and global markets.
Philip Bouchier manages the Council's Records Management Team which is responsible for storing, retrieving, disclosing and disposing of over 40,000 boxes of physical records. The team fulfils requests for information held on paper documents on a daily basis, by first finding the physical document, and then scanning and emailing it.
The fi-7700 scanner has greatly improved results and speed of scanning of the typical social care, planning and legal files at the Council, whilst the PaperStream software has enabled quick post-production alterations to the images, reducing the length of time to scan each file by two or threefold.
