Kristina Russell

Data Management
Kefron UK

Play hard...

Having worked in the business software industry for almost 30 years, Kristina is passionate about helping companies improve manual business processes through the innovative use of technology. She now runs the sales operation for Kefron UK, a document management company. In her spare time, Kristina rides her ex racehorse and is partial to a good glass of red wine or two.

Work hard...

Kefron provides a range of information management solutions including document scanning, storage services, accounts payable automation, electronic document management solutions and archive consulting. Kefron works to the highest international standards, with a team of colleagues we respect and customers we call friends. We continuously innovate to bring customers the latest processes and technology to manage their information.

We originally began with our first records centre in Dublin and now have three purpose-built record centres, inclusive of high volume scanning bureaus. In 2014 we expanded into the UK market through the acquisition of a document management company based in Reading.

We are proud to hold four ISO certificates, including ISO 27001 for Information Security.

94% of all records are now created digitally; so many companies face the stress and challenges of taking years of archived physical documentation into the age of technology. At Kefron we convert physical records into digital format to help automate business processes.

We have invested significantly in the area of Digital Document Management in recent years, including the development of strategic partnerships in document management software, such as M-Files, Kofax and Canon, and the necessary hardware to fulfil customer contracts.

In 2015 we acquired Evolution, a software development company, which enables Kefron to deliver our own in-house digital document management solutions. This includes system integration with customers’ existing ERP and Document Management systems.

This approach helps us to provide the most contemporary information management solutions available to deliver the best service possible to our customers. We manage the complete document lifecycle of both physical records and digital information. And we work hard to remain flexible within a changing environment.

Ultimately our services help organisations to: 

  • Get and remain compliant in the area of Records Management
  • Eliminate costs associated with document management and manual business processes
  • Increase efficiency through improved accessibility of information
  • Reduce time spent by staff on paper intensive processes through our proven processes.

Specifically, the services we provide are:

  • Scanning & Imaging Services
  • Records Management Consultancy
  • Electronic Document Management Systems
  • Online Hosted Solutions & Automation of Business Processes, including Accounts Payable
  • Data Processing.
