    Document Storage


    Three generations of the Cull family have been involved with the business since its creation 80 years ago.

    William Cull founded the company in 1926 with a professional photography business based in Birkenhead.

    As technology developed so did the company with the introduction of microfilming to the business in 1965 by Gerald Cull, and also the new name of Cull Reprographics.

    Scanning and document management solutions were introduced in 1995 by third generation Tim & Damian Cull, with a corresponding name change to Cull Paperless Solutions that reflected the modern scanning technology that is used in its process.

    Today Cull Paperless Solutions is a thriving business and was awarded the MSIF Family Business Awards Special Achievement in 2005 in recognition of its ability to adapt to changes in technology and the market in which it operates.


    Cull complies with all the essential requirements of the modern business. Its ISO 9002 accreditation, obtained in 1998, covers all aspects of the business from the weekly checking of tyre pressures on our vans to the detailed specifications for the scanning and indexing of clients’ paperwork.

    Whether you are looking to outsource all your scanning and retrieval requirements or you want to manage your documentation in house, Cull has the technology and expertise to provide a solution to your paper storage and retrieval needs.

    We have consistently invested in the very latest state of the art hardware and software


    We have now disposed of our central storage unit,and we can find everything we need at the click of a button. This allows us to work more efficiently and has saved a considerable amount of space.

    We had a real paperwork issue dealing with hundreds of invoices each week. We looked at several options including converting one of our offices into an archive room, but when Cull showed us Invu it quickly became clear that it was going to solve all our paperwork issues and at a similar cost. We liked it so much so that we signed up there and then.

    Searching for invoices is now incredibly easy and quick, and we no longer find ourselves sifting through a mountain of paper to find that elusive one.

    Historically we had always microfilmed all of our Invoices and various other financial records, however, after taking the time to understand our needs Cull Paperless Solutions provided us with an up to date solution for our record keeping. Since then we have further extended our document imaging to within the Quality Department. Now that we are scanning our business critical documents, searching for that elusive invoice is no longer a chore.

    We have worked with Cull for years and have always found them to be friendly, reliable and knowledgable about document management. We can now find everything we need at the click of a button and believe we have achieved considerable cost savings as a result.
