HP Inc-owned Apogee has taken another step to advance its managed workplace services across Europe.
The UK-based document and IT services firm has agreed to acquire Datatron Document Image Archiving to expand its outsourced document services scale and capabilities. The acquisition will allow Apogee to deliver a scanning operation and “unique” virtual record management platform.
Founded in 1996, Datatron currently processes over 300 million documents each week, delivering services to customers across private and public sectors. Apogee said Datatron also has expertise within the NHS and is responsible for building and maintaining one of the UK’s largest digital patient record archives.
Apogee CEO Aurelio Maruggi stated: “This acquisition will strengthen our existing portfolio of services, helping Apogee’s and Datatron’s customers to accelerate their adoption of more secure and efficient ways to manage documents and personal records. Digital transformation strategies have resulted in an increased demand for sophisticated scanning and record management requirements as businesses adopt more digital working practices.”
