WITH A presence in thousands of workplaces of every size, in every sector and every corner of Scotland, Capital Document Solutions is well-placed to track the nation’s return to work, thanks to Scottish PR.

The Edinburgh firm has 13,000 office print devices deployed to 4000 clients across Scotland, giving it unique insights into how many offices and other business are reopening.

When it shared its findings, showing that the post-lockdown return to workplaces had slowed and was stuck stubbornly around 60%, we helped tell that story to the world.

The expert public relations team at our Scottish PR agency experts delivered the following results:

Often billed as one of Scotland’s best-kept business success stories, Capital Document Solutions is the country’s biggest, independent suppliers of office machines to thousands of businesses, including household names and bluechip firms.

Founded more than 40 years ago by Tom Flockhart, he grew it into a £22m-a-year business which, prior to the pandemic, employed almost 200 people in five offices across Scotland.

Powerful public relations helps raise the profile of Capital Document Solutions, building awareness of its extensive reach and putting its name in front of procurement experts.  That in turn helps the hard-working team enjoy recognition, creating a more fulfilled workforce.

Successful PR can also help businesses in a wide range of other ways including helping to put companies on the radar for funding or acquisition or making business attractive to the best talent in a sector.
