Who is Document Direction

Document Direction is a leader in Toronto and across Canada in digital print imaging with experience from desktop home office Multifunction (MFP), to office laser printers and MFPs, and to Production Print extending from cut sheet to high-speed continuous digital presses.

Document Direction provides client partners with Information Systems and Technology at whatever level desired, from basic equipment needs to Managed IT Helpdesk Services for your organization.

With expertise in documents and records, Digital Transformation projects with Document Direction don't typically offer just a small tweak, but instead deliver improvements measured in orders of magnitude for finding, capturing, integrating and processing your information.

What Makes DDL Different

Document Direction arrives with a fresh, informed perspective and a modern approach that we hope you find to be a warmly welcomed departure from "office equipment" sales people.

In yesterday's era, copiers just made copies. Today, the modern MFP is an information hub, allowing rapid capture and distribution of information. And, of course, they still produce great printed images in full colour or in razor-sharp black & white.

This culminates in a true partnership, ensuring that highly effective improvements are delivered, consisting of equipment, people, software, services, or an optimized mix.

How DDL Delivers

In today's busy climate, it is common to resist change. Yet change is as natural as, well, nature. The Document Direction team works to enable your own organic improvements.

The level of client care needed on improvement projects can be exceptionally high, and Document Direction's consultative approach means that questions are asked and answered, and possibilities are explored specific to your environment, always leveraging our experience.
