Scan Microfilm and Microfiche To Reduce Costs

As a company with a microfilm, microfiche or aperture card library you are already well aware of the need and have made a commitment to keep and maintain access to documents for a long period of time.

Microfilm and microfiche offer substantial benefits over paper records although they operate separately from day to day archives in the company and retrieval is often a time-consuming chore for staff.

Technology has advanced and it is now possible to scan, store and distribute documents securely across a company using standard IT infrastructure (computers, tablets and the corporate network), in fact you may already be taking advantage of a document management system such as Sharepoint, Documentum or Opentext within your organisation.

PaperMountains' document scanning bureau will take your microfilm, microfiche even aperture card, scan them so you get all of the benefits of scanning microfilm without having the infrastructure cost of microfilm scanners, servers and software as well not having to train staff and remove them from their other tasks to prepare the microfilm, scan and index.

Converting your Microfilm or Microfiche Library

Converting your microfiche or microfilm library into electronic images to take advantage of the ease of use and speed of a document management system couldn't be simpler, PaperMountains will collect your microfilms and scan them on film scanners to get the best results.

The scanned images will be returned to you along with the meta data to find them when searching or be uploaded directly into your archive

The microfilms and microfiche can, after processing, be stored at very low cost in our physical archive or destroyed so that you can use the space where the film library was housed for a more productive purpose.

Fast & Easy Access

Finding your documents archived on microfilm or microfiche involves at least a physical walk to the library, manually searching the catalog, pulling the correct film and finding the document you want, all of which takes time. If someone is working from home, on site, in another office or even overseas, they either have to make a visit to the building where the microfilm library is held or request that someone else gets the documents for them.

Once scanned the digital images of the microfilm documents are available to be found by searching for the catalog information you specify on your employees computer or mobile device where ever they are in the world twenty four hours a day just the same as your other computer systems.

This makes your historical archive of documents available to all on a self service basis in seconds.
