Apogee to acquire Document Specialists, Datatron

Apogee Corporation Ltd has agreed to acquire Datatron Document Image Archiving Ltd.

 

18/08/2023, Maidstone, UK

Apogee Corporation Ltd has agreed to acquire Datatron Document Image Archiving Ltd, to further strengthen their Outsourced Document Services scale and capabilities. Founded in 1996, Datatron became the first dedicated bureau in the North of England, pioneering Document Scanning Services.

Datatron will complement Apogee’s existing portfolio of Outsourced Document Services, allowing them to deliver a market-leading scanning operation coupled with a unique 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. They also have a distinguished expertise within the NHS and are responsible for building and maintaining one of the UK's largest digital patient record archives.

Among many industries served by Datatron, their reputation and expertise are particularly strong within the NHS.

This represents a perfect match with Apogee’s large and growing presence within this market segment.
– Aurelio Maruggi, CEO of Apogee Corporation

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. 

Among many industries served by Datatron, their reputation and expertise are particularly strong within the NHS. This represents a perfect match with Apogee’s large and growing presence within this market segment.”

Apogee has a great history of growth, both organically led and through M&A, and this acquisition is another part of the journey for the organisation as it continues to strategically strengthen its Managed Workplace Service capabilities.

As organisations continue to evolve and adapt with the introduction of new technology and working behaviours, Apogee aims to help businesses work smarter and work safer in a more sustainable world. Reviewing the technology and processes employees use, Apogee will continue to invest in its portfolio of services, ensuring it continues to provide world-class Managed Workplace Services to its customers.
