About Scan IT Africa


The demand for converting paper documents into digital documents is increasing day by day, and while there are only a handful of document scanning agencies in and around the Johannesburg area offering wide format scanning and conversion services, none are as efficient, reliable and experienced as we are.


In operation for many years, we are one of the first local-based document management bureaus in South Africa to offer document scanning and indexing, microfilm scanning, and wide format scanning and conversion services in Gauteng. Using Wicks and Wilson microfilm and wide format scanners, we are the right document management agency that can electronically convert any type of image. Our services include the following:

  • Wide Format Scanning and Conversions – our wide format scanners are capable of scanning wide drawings that are as wide as 914mm and as long as 20m, and then converting them to A4, A5 and so on.
  • Document Scanning and Indexing – an image scanner that optically scans images and printed text, and converts them to a digital image.
  • Microfilm Scanning – our microfilm scanners are capable of handling everything from cheques, and blueprints, to newspapers and maps, and can reduce images to about one twenty-fifth of the original document size. For special purposes, greater optical reductions may be used.
