Case Study: Largest scan ever?  
The Challenge:
Career Ready is a UK wide charity linking employers with schools to open up the world of work to young people. Graduation was approaching for Scottish students and Career Ready wanted to record this event and highlight the students' great achievements. Albi Taylor, a well-known graphic facilitator, uses words and pictures to record an event in real time. Albi produced an amazing 42 inch by 18 foot (1 m by 5.5 m) image which delighted Career Ready, all the students and employer supporters. The challenge was, how could they possibly share this image so that it was more widely accessible?
The Solution:
McPhersons Document Solutions Ltd, family run document management and scanning bureau, were able to test out their Colortrac large format scanner  when they were approached by Albi Taylor. Albi Taylor and Career Ready were both delighted with the result. Colortrac scanners will always produce greatest accuracy and their scanning software allow for control over file size.
