We Scan Photos was established in 2009. Since then it has become one of the UK’s leading photo scanning companies.
Originally started in the spare room of Kyle Savage’s house with the help of his wife Stacy, the business was run in the couple’s spare time.
By 2011 the day-to-day running of the business had become a burden on the young family. Enquiries were being missed due to Kyle’s other work commitments and Stacy had children to look after—not the ideal environment for answering numerous telephone calls during the day.
In early 2012, Kyle and Stacy developed a new website and decided to look for a ‘virtual office’. After reviewing the main competition on Google, Kyle made the decision to use Virtually There. The services offered were ideal: phone calls were taken in a professional manner and on a landline number, and Virtually There provided a central place for orders to be delivered to during office hours.
During the six months the company has been using Virtually There, We Scan Photos has seen an increase in orders and revenue of 150% year on year.
“The service provided by Virtually There means I can concentrate on specific elements of my business which have led to an increase in turnover,” says Kyle. “I now have a professional telephone answering service which provides my customers with the confidence that they’re dealing with a reputable company.”
