Microfilm is widely used for storing all sorts of information. Records scanning, on the other hand, can digitize the microfilm and create digital files. Records scanning opens the door for many opportunities. Is is a wise decision many of our customers make when they decide to the records scanning way, specially if records scanning will replace a heavily used microfilm system. In fact, the more in-demand a microfilm system is, the easier it becomes to justify a records scanning process.
Not many microfilm retrieval system can compare to a digital retrieval system that is generated from a records scanning process. One case that records scanning made a huge impact on customer service and also made a great impact within the organization, was a project we worked on years ago for a New York organization. The microfilm system they replace by records scanning procedures allowed them to evacuated over 100,000 square feet of prime Manhattan real estate. Additionally, labor was reduced considerably because the records scanning process generated all digital and completely automated retrieval system. No need for inventory of microfilm and no need for paper printing of files from the microfilm.
Perhaps the best of all is the ability to update a digital system. Records scanning is a one time process that takes microfilm to digital. After records scanning all new data that arrives in a digital format can be incorporated into the system with great ease. More than that, it is possible to organize and index files from a records scanning system easier that a traditional microfilm system. CONTACT US
