Apogee to acquire document specialist, Datatron


Apogee Corporation Ltd has agreed to acquire Datatron Document Image Archiving Ltd, to further strengthen its Outsourced Document Services scale and capabilities.

Datatron will complement Apogee’s existing portfolio of Outsourced Document Services, allowing them to deliver a scanning operation coupled with a Virtual Record Management platform. Datatron currently processes over three million documents per week, delivering services to a large number of customers across Private and Public Sectors.

The company also has knowhow within the NHS and is responsible for building and maintaining one of the UK's largest digital patient record archives. 

Aurelio Maruggi, CEO of Apogee said: “The Datatron acquisition forms part of our ongoing strategy to be the market leader in Managed Workplace Services, both in the UK and throughout Continental Europe. 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. Utilising Datatron’s experience and expertise in this market, we are excited to see our portfolio of services continue to evolve to match the growing needs of our customers.” 

Datatron’s MD, David Popay, commented on the acquisition: “This is an exciting new chapter in Datatron’s 27-year history, the opportunity to blend our specialist digital transformation skills into one of Europe’s leading business service providers is a once in life time event and opens up a wealth of opportunity for Apogee clients.”
