Have you still not upgraded your Aperture Cards, Microfilm, and Microfiche to digital format? New production for these types of legacy formats have reached near extinction.

Get your Data Organized, for Financial sake.

An unorganized Microfilm, or Microfiche storage area may be costing you more time and money than its worth. If your thinking about digitizing your collection, think about the chart below: By calculating the average hourly wage of part-time and full-time office employees  and the overall number of “office professionals” documented by the U.S. Census,  Brother determined that over $177 billion is  wasted overall each year looking for misplaced items in the office and on the  computer, which may drastically impact the bottom-line for large companies and  small businesses alike.

 

Bring Back the Luster of those Legacy Images

Many times we can bring back images that have began their natural deterioration. Accidentally, Microfilm, and Microfiche were stored incorrectly throughout their life and have lost some quality. Many people don’t realize how great image reconstruction technology has become. Many historically important government records have been returned to their previous quality when they were first created.

Conversion to a digital preservation medium involves the expertise of trained professionals. Many aspects surround details like grey scale imaging and attention to pixels and how to best turn them into legible images.

Get those files into Circulation or Protect them

Just like our options for Paper and X-Ray documents, you may choose to export your data in any format you choose. The data can be uploaded to a cloud server that your employees can login for access. The files can be sent into your document management system or the files can be transferred to you via an external hard drive.

If your files require protection, we recommend that you choose a duplicate system. Choose two different servers to back-up your information.

We can work with any type of media. Some of the more typical Microfilm formats include:

We are here to Help

A simple mistake done at the production level could make a huge impact on the quality of the final product. It is also important to know how much time will be spent in production. You do not want to have to wait too long for the task to be completed. On the other hand, you do not want a firm that gives you great speed in production but at the expense of quality work. Both factors are equally important.

Keep in mind that some information could determine the future of not only you, your business, or your community; it could have an impact on mankind and the development of new technology or medical advancements. Seek the experts you trust to show you past work and assure you of constant communication during the entire process.
