Did you know…
Did you know that microfilm readers are notoriously difficult to maintain and machine parts are becoming more difficult to source year on year?
If you have stores of microfilm which you access frequently, our scanning service could cut your costs, save resources and allow you to benefit from quick, efficient access to the information you require. With a high-resolution digital archive of your records, you can get rid of those redundant microfilm readers and review records without leaving your desk.
In addition to digitising your archive of microfilm, we can also apply OCR and custom metadata to each electronic document enabling fast, advanced searching on your document management system.
Our scanning process is quick, efficient and easy to understand!
We can of course tailor the project to suit any bespoke requirements.
We’ll collect the microfilm from your office location quickly and efficiently; no matter which London Borough you are located in. We always use triple-walled boxes to ensure the safe transportation of microfilm to us.
Our technical team will assess the quality of microfiche firstly, before scanning the records into your required output (JPEG, PDF, TIFF etc). The scanned image will also be indexed according to your requirements.
We can provide you with access to scanned records via encrypted USB or SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol), whichever is preferred! We are currently working on a bespoke cloud-based system which is due to be launched shortly!
Our Happy Clients
Just some of the many businesses who we have worked with over the years.
Types of microfilm
With microfilm almost redundant as a form of archiving documents, it may be a little confusing which type of microfilm you have. There are two main types of film, and these depend on the type/size of the document stored:
16mm film 35mm film
A standard, 16mm film are used to store A4 business documents, 35mm film used to store large format drawings A2-A0 in size.
In addition to scanning microfilm, we can also scan other types of microform, including microfiche, aperture cards, negatives and X-rays.
SECURITY + COMPLIANCE
When it comes to scanning highly confidential documents such as microfilm, we understand you may be concerned about security… but there really is no need to be!
Our scanning services are accredited to ISO 27001 for Information Security, ISO 9001 for Quality Management and BS 10008 for the Legal Admissibility of Electronic Images.
