Microfilm Scanning | Microfiche Scanning Services
With our ISO 9001:2000 accreditation we ensure that all of your data is kept confidential, safe and secure and that all of our conversion projects are completed to the very best quality.
Storing documents away on microfiche or microfilm is now an outdated method of data archiving. These films and microfiche can easily be lost or damaged and finding one file from a film or fiche slide is not an easy task.
The overall time and costs that you actually save by digitising these old files is quite surprising.
With the microfiche and microfilm scanning process, all of these documents are converted into digital files which can be stored on CDs, DVDs, on your local network or even securely online for easy access from any location.

Main Advantages of Microfiche and Microfilm Scanning
There are plenty of advantages to microfilm and microfiche conversion but here are a list of some of the main ones:
+ Save on costs and time spent on recovering and storing files
+ No more time wasted searching through film reels and microfiche slides to find one particular file
+ Documents and records can be kept safe and backed up electronically many times in lots of different locations
+ Access any filmed document instantly without leaving your desk
+ Create more office space by removing any boxes of film reels and drawers of microfiche slides
+ Historic public records could even be uploaded online for the public to view which saves time on retrieving records at the office
The price of a microfiche or microfilm reader or microfilm printer often far outweighs the use of it due to the time spent on using it. By outsourcing the microfilm and microfiche for scanning and conversion you would simply receive a CD with all documents available in
either PDF, Word, TIFF, JPEG or any other digital file typet that you prefer.
Once the images are scanned, the quality will be just as high as the originals with all specific document details captured. These images are usually scanned in greyscale mode in high resolution depending on the quality needed.
Once the files are indexed and organised electronically it makes it much easier to locate any specific document you are looking for.
Microfilm and microfiche conversion is a much better choice to buying or even renting a microfiche or microfilm reader. It's better value, gives lasting results and saves time and space.
How the film scanning process works
Microfiche and microfilms are collected directly from you by our couriers. These are returned to our head scanning bureau where our experienced microfilm and microfiche scanning staff use top quality microfilm and microfiche scanners while carefully checking the quality of each individually scanned document after conversion.
Once the microfiche and microfilms have been scanned in, the digital files are converted to whichever electronic format you prefer. They are later enhanced and each document is indexed to your specific requirements. This way you can quickly locate any required document easily.
Other Scanning and Conversion Services
Aperture Card Scanning & Slide Scanning
Aperture card scanning is a similar service we provide. These cards will often hold images on like engineering drawings, plans or detailed diagrams. They are quite similar to the microfiche storage method and contain images on each card. Once these images are electronically converted they are usually saved in TIFF or PDF format.
Our slide scanning and photograph scanning services use a similar process by converting slides which contain photographs or documents. This ensures the data is kept safely in one place instead of keeping a large collection of small individual slides or photographs. This can be time consuming to sort and search through. Slide scanning and photograph scanning also offers the ability to create slide shows and movies using the scanned images.
Our data protection agreements ensure that all files scanned are always kept highly confidential with our strict security policies in place.
Our scanning bureau staff have over 30 years of combined experience in the industry so all of your documents will always be in professional hands.
All of our scanning services are carefully audited by a third party to ensure we are doing our very best to look after your data. And as signified with our ISO 9001:2000 accreditation we have one of the most professional services that can be offered in our field.
