About Us

Scan Computers International Ltd (Scan) was founded by Mr Shelley Raja in 1987 and is now a family run business employing over 150 members of staff at its main office in Bolton. Scan has, over the years, built a solid reputation for being a quality and innovative supplier to the retail and etail markets.

Scan builds and supplies high-performance systems, PC hardware and software, and consumer electronics through the retail and etail markets.

Scan is no mere box shifter though. We invest heavily in training our staff and developing innovative services, such as the ability to trace the status of your order via our website, to ensure that our customers receive the best possible service. Don't just take our word for it though - Scan has won numerous awards for its customer service, including 'Specialist Retailer of the Year 2012' as voted by the readers of PC Retail magazine, while the readers of Custom PC magazine voted Scan as the 'Best PC Manufacturer 2012' and 'Best Retailer 2012'.

Scan prides itself on offering a wide range of hardware and software from the best manufacturers in the world. So whether you're looking for a new CPU to upgrade an old PC, a new motherboard, memory or water-cooling system so you can overclock it better, a new graphics card to play the last games, an SSD or hard drive to upgrade the storage or the latest version of Windows, you should find everything you need on our website.

Our range of award-winning 3XS systems and pre-overclocked bundles are based around the philosophy of the three S's - Specification, Service and Satisfaction.

Firstly, we work hard to build strong relationships with the leading manufacturers in each field. These relationships allow us to offer superior pricing and stay ahead of the curve so that we're always the first to market with new technology. For example, a Scan director currently serves as President of the Intel Advisory Board, while Scan has been certified as a Microsoft Silver Partner. Scan is also proud to be the UK's number one retailer of the world leader in GPUs, Nvidia.

Secondly, Scan employs a dedicated team of experts in the fields of audio recording and mixing, video production, computer graphics and modelling and servers, so that we have an intimate understanding of the needs of different markets. All these experts are on hand to answer any queries you have, so that together, we can select the correct Specification for you. Many of Scan's staff are also hardcore gamers, meaning they have a great understanding of what Specification to choose when designing an awesome gaming rig.

Service means keeping our customers fully in the loop whether they are ordering a single gaming PC or one hundred graphics workstations. Customers can track and trace the status of their 3XS system order via a dedicated web portal and even get status updates via SMS text message. We'll even let you know how well your system performs before it is delivered, so you can plan on how you will use it. And if any problems do arise our specially developed Virtual Engineer software is pre-installed on every 3XS system, allowing our engineers to quickly and easily fix most problems remotely.

Satisfaction means ensuring that our customers get the best possible experience from a 3XS system. That's why, as standard, we'll not only deliver your 3XS system, but unbox and set it up for you at a time convenient to you in the comfort of your home or office.

Finally, unlike many other etailers, Scan does not hide behind the anonymity of the web. So if you can't find the product you're looking for, or simply need some advice, one of our pre-sales team would be delighted to help you on 0871 472 4747.

Alternatively, you can visit our retail showroom (pictured above) at 25 Enterprise Park, Bolton, BL6 6PE, Mon-Fri 9am to 5:30pm, Sat 10am to 4pm. We look forward to hearing from you.
