Stephen & Co


Established in 1928, chartered surveyors Stephen & Co. have an enviable business reputation throughout Somerset.

Stephen & Co. Director, Andrew Smith, explains their situation: “We will never over inflate the value of a property in order to gain an instruction and we are
confident enough in our advice not to tie Vendors into long contracts that they can’t get out of. We won't make any promises we can't keep and believe in absolute honesty.”

“We were introduced to SDS and their copying/print/scanning solutions in 2007. SDS Marketing Director, Dean Howard, brought to our attention that our existing contract could be improved substantially in all areas of service, quality, cost and support. He also introduced us to the potential of scanning and archiving documents electronically.”  

The SDS solution

Having moved to smaller premises Stephen & Co. workflow needed to be more efficient. SDS introduced a scanning and archiving solution which had immediate positive time and cost saving benefits.  

The long-term benefits

·        Misplaced files can be easily found using ‘Searchable Text’ making the retrieval of important documents effortless
