Those of us who’ve been part of this industry for many years remember when microfilm was the technology of choice. As we’ve evolved to a world of digital documents, cloud hosted records management systems and instant connectivity, it’s easy for those organizations to forget that literally tons of important content was committed to microfilm, microfiche, and other various micro-graphic formats.
Often times, micro-graphic repositories contain vital information that require long-term or perpetual retention, and have a good possibility of needing to be accessed today. Important documents that come to mind include government, manufacturing, educational, and financial records, just to name a few.
Conventional microfilm retrieval devices are slow and cumbersome in light of today’s demand for instant access. Fortunately, there are new, sophisticated scanning systems that convert micro-graphic images to high quality digital images. These scanning systems make the process of converting large volumes of micro-graphic images to digital files much simpler and more cost effective for your business or organization.
Microtek recognized this need for their clients and have invested in the technology and expertise to become specialists in microfilm to digital conversions. If your organization has the need to make yesterday’s information available in today’s brave new digital world, please contact us! We are here to help!
