Why businesses invest in microfiche and microfilm scanning and digitization
Reduction in costs
The cost of maintaining space for large volumes of physical records can impact businesses financially. Investing in bulk document scanning of archived microfiche and microfilm will reduce the amount of space required to store physical documents.
Digitized documents are available instantaneously to customers and staff and can be shared and viewed easily and simultaneously. Digitized images become ‘text searchable’ with our OCR capability meaning you can find the information you need with a simple search.
Digitization of microfiche and microfilm results in a secure inventory of your business and customer data. Bulk document scanning also protects your business from losing information or files due to physical damage or destruction of the original microfiche and microfilm.
Physical documents can only be accessed by the person holding the document. In today's digital world, remote file access and document sharing is a key to streamlined business processes and a seamless customer experience.
Security and compliance
Digitizing microfiche and microfilm enables data to be protected from unauthorized access. Highly-regulated industries are required to maintain customer and business records over many years, and a digitization strategy ensures compliance and vital data security.
Quality review and control
EDM's 100% quality control (QC) and quality review (QR) protocol use a combination of automated software and human validation before finished images are sent to customers each day.
