Why Convert My Microfilm to Digital?

Microfilm usually boasts a shelf life of up to 50 years, but that isn’t always the case. Check in on your film and fiche. Do you notice any blemishes, vinegar smell, brittleness, stickiness or fungus? These older media types often decay even in environments with climate-control measures in place.

Digitizing these records before they fall to decay prolongs the life of your data in a way that really does last for years.

Benefits to Scanning Your Microfilm for Digital Conversion

Businesses who have made the jump to microfilm conversion services often regret not making the decision sooner.  Some of the notable benefits that come with microfilm scanning include:

      • Accurate Data Preservation
      • Easier Information Access
      • Ability to Share Data and Collaborate Easily
      • Search-ability Within Your Data
      • More Space!
      • Efficiency Increase
      • Improving Your Bottom Line
      • Peace of Mind
      • Backups!

Additionally, when you add up costs that a conversion project may accrue, in-house digitization is usually not an effective use of time or money. The cost to outsource to a company with all the equipment, staff and knowledge already in place, can be a lot more attractive.
