Perivan, the UK’s leading financial printer, managed services and enterprise technology solutions provider and EthosData, a world-class, award winning, global Virtual Data Room specialist, have today announced a strategic partnership following the recent transfer of the Millnet Financial Printing business (EthosData’s previous UK partner) to Perivan.

A virtual data room provider´s perspective about scanning is very different to general public. We think it is an exciting topic!
We started offering virtual data room services 12 years ago. Back then, most of our datarooms projects included big scanning jobs. Right now most of our projects are all digital and although we still do a bit of scanning, most documents come to us digitized. In many cases, our clients and partners ask for advice regarding scanning.
