Document Direct, a Liverpool, UK-based provider of typing, transcription and document services for law firms and medical centres, secured £300k in funding.
The North West Fund for Venture Capital, managed by Enterprise Ventures, made its second investment, following a £400,000 in March this year.
Founded in 2005 by CEO Martyn Best, and Chairman Chris Bull, Document Direct provides a 24-hour service from a UK-wide team of legally and medically trained typists and PAs. Clients upload their dictation files via a secure, encrypted route, and receive typed and formatted documents by return.
The company has also developed its own software platform, iComply Direct, which allows documents to be approved online via an electronic signature, removing the need for printed copies to be posted out and returned, and eliminating the risk of non-compliance across many key areas.
